So, it seems a bit quietly, Facebook’s Oculus has cut prices on the Oculus Rift.
If you were thinking of getting into VR on PC, I’d highly recommend going with the Oculus Rift and Touch controllers as they have had a significant reduction in price, making it much cheaper than the HTC VIVE.
The Oculus Rift with Touch controllers were originally close to 800 bucks where now, you can grab them for $598, which makes them roughly $200 cheaper than the HTC VIVE. Not only are they cheaper now, but Oculus has exclusives that HTC VIVE players might be not able to play in the future, like Robo Recall. Even with the REVIVE mods that allow VIVE users to mod Oculus games for compatibility, we’ve seen Oculus update their Oculus Store to disable that functionality in the past. Buy it on Amazon!
With that in mind, if you’re like us and want to try all the latest and greatest in VR, Oculus would likely be your best bet over the HTC VIVE. Speaking of Rift games, we’re eager to step in Robo Recall from EPIC games and hope to have some content for you on that as well.
