Oculus Rift, Touch Bundle Now $379 Through Dec. 20
Still planning to buy an Oculus Rift for a lucky gamer in your life this holiday season? We have some good news: it won’t be as expensive as expected.
Facebook-owned Oculus VR just announced a limited-time promotion knocking $20 off the price of the virtual reality headset and accompanying Touch controllers. Now through Dec. 20 at 11:59 p.m. PT, you can snag the Oculus Rift + Touch bundle for just $379.
The discount comes after Oculus in October slashed $100 off the price of the Rift + Touch bundle, bringing it down to $399.
The bundle includes a Rift headset, a pair of hand-tracking Touch controllers, two sensors, all the necessary connecting cables you’ll need, and seven free VR apps, including Lucky’s Tale, Medium, Toybox, Quill, Dead and Buried, Dragon Front, and Robo Recall.
Oculus is also running a Winter Sale offering up to 80 percent or more on 250 titles, and game bundles starting at $89.99. The Winter Sale runs now through Jan. 2 at 10 a.m. PT.
The Oculus Rift earned an “excellent” rating in PCMag’s review. It “comfortably produces an immersive, crisp virtual reality experience that will continue to improve with the development of new software, which has been steadily coming out on both the Oculus store and SteamVR,” we wrote.
Just note that to use the Rift, you’ll need a PC with some pretty good specs, including an Intel i5-4590 or better CPU, an Nvidia GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290 or better video card, at least 8GB of RAM, an HDMI 1.3 output, three USB 3.0 ports, and one USB 2.0 port.
