Oculus Rift was a great invention but there had to be a point where we must move on and the manufacturing company had to get out of the fantasy of the lone producer. The HMD scene is now filled with many of the competitors and Oculus has now decided to drop down the price tag to $399.
There is no doubt about Oculus Rift being the pioneer in VR HMD production scene but the current market holds HTC Vive and Microsoft as major competitors to the product.
The $399 Package
Speaking of the $399 Oculus package, the Oculus Rift comes with:
- Touch controllers
- Six free entertainment apps including Epic’s arcade shooter and Robo Recall etc
The $399 price tag was revised and announced by the company in a recent press release where the focus of the company was on the price tag being permanent now.
