Oculus Rift + Oculus Touch $449USD (~$590.95 AUD) Delivered @ Oculus

2240

This seems like a crazy price on the Oculus Rift, cheapest I have found is about $850AUD so this is a significant reduction in price and it is a great VR.

I have used Mastercard exchange rates to get that price.

Includes: headset, 2x sensors, Touch controllers, Xbox One controller, remote, necessary cables, and seven free titles available when you set up Rift+Touch, including Lucky's Tale, Medium, Toybox, Quill, Dead and Buried, Dragon Front, and Robo Recall.

Edit @ 12/7: X1 Controller and Remote doesn't seem to be included anymore.

Edit @ 13/7: These accessories actually do seem to be included and you should contact Oculus if you don't receive them.

Enjoy :)

Thanks to keengeorge for commenting the US price.

Wow, Oculus offers a much better deal. Thanks to twocsies & Trobed

    I really want to get this, my laptop has gtx 1050 ti 2gb. I ran the detection tool from their website, result says my laptop exceeds the minimum specification which I really doubt about it….any idea?

    •  

      Depends what you want to do with it.

      The minimum specs really do mean minimum. You won't be able to crank the visuals up to acceptable levels in a lot of games.

        My GC is less than the minimum and provides an adequate experience on some games. I have a GTX970m

    •  

      I think you would be fine. I played on a 5 year Old PC with a 690 for six months and while a few directX 11 games would not load the games that did were fine for me. I have since grabed a 1080ti and have no issues at all on the older PC hardware .. so from my experience it's more GPU related then anything else and a 1050 beats out the 970 minimum easily.

      • +1 vote

        Errhh no the GTX 1050 doesnt beat out a GTX 970. A 1050ti 4gb is nearly on par with a 970.

    •  

      From memory I believe they recently changed it to be more accessible to older machines, but I believe they may do it by reducing the fps

      • +1 vote

        They did it by making a frame interpolation technique called Async Spacewarp. It's not going to beat 90fps, but it's good enough that you'll only need 45fps to feel close.

    My wife gave me a birthday gift to try one of those at a VR video game cafe for an hour. I think it was HTC vive. I tried a few games including the racing title but made me super sick in 15 minutes. Couldn't drive home and had spining head for the whole weekend. I highly recommend to try before you buy as it couldn't be for you.
    Yes and I do agree with some of the previous comments that it feels like fly watching the world.
    I am a gamer and do not have problem with motion sickness.

    •  

      A lot of people do unfortunately. I picked up a PSVR about a week ago and was really paranoid about this. Fortunately it seems that I don't get motion sickness at all.

      Most games have settings to make it easier on people who do suffer from motion sickness. For example, in Resident Evil 7 you can change the movement so that it skips 30 degrees rather than moving smoothly. That apparently helps.

  •  

    I've had the oculus for about 6 months now. I mainly play DCS world (flight sim), once you learn where all the buttons are its really good. The head tracking works perfectly and the depth perception makes it super easy to fly in formation within metres of the other planes. Just have to close my eyes if i crash, almost immediate headache and throw up.

      I can imagine crashing your plane would also be uncomfortable in real life too.. So good simulation lol

        Crashing freaked me the hell out in DCS as well!

    Oculus is really struggling with sales. With wireless, steam knuckle controllers, fallout4 vr and doom vr all on the way for the vive I can understand why. Also Zenimx may shutdown oculus sdk which is a worry. I for one could not have all those cables from the Pc all over my lounge room that's why I got the vive. If your in a bedroom this is a no brainier if you don't mind missing the above

    • +3 votes

      The knuckle controllers definitely look awesome, but the Vive's entry price is still simply too high (>$1000 for just the base bundle). Even before this sale I was on the fence about Oculus, but this current deal feels more than worth it.

      Seeing how the Rift works with SteamVR anyway, I don't see much downsides to getting a Vive from a pure gameplay point of view. I'll keep an eye on the Vive for sure though, the knuckle controllers paired with a higher resolution headset would be a dream.

    •  

      just to clarify; the oculus is capable of playing native steam VR games like fallout 4 and doom upon release correct?

      •  

        Yes it should be able to. But the controllers might might not work correctly. Saying that I'm sure someone will patch it

  •  

    i wonder if they collect gst ?

    •  

      It's under $1000, so no.

      •  

        Super SIlly question : I wonder if it's included with GST?

        •  

          Yeah my bad, looks like the start date for that is mid 2018.. Thought it started this year.

        I tried Rift when they have free demo a while back in CityHunter in Chatswood. Definitely recommended it. I think you need to pay hourly fee now, but you can try Vive and Rift there.

  •  

    Great price, wonder if they are worried that the Zenimax lawsuit could halt their sales.

    •  

      Not just halt sales but could also shutdown sdk. Meaning oculus store bye bye

      •  

        Very well could happen. Fortunately the rift can also use Steam

      Pretty sure its an original one still, but comes with the USB dongle to connect to your PC

  •  

    Such a good price. The PS4 VR is more acceptable but the Oculus has better controllers & slightly better resolution specs

    I'd buy it but like the PS4 VR (which I have used) the VR concept is still a few years too early for decent back to back games

  •  

    I have a 3770k, 16gb ram with an Nvidia 660Ti, I’ll be upgrading to an Nvidia 1060 to play with the Rift, will that run pretty well, does anyone else have a similar setup?

    •  

      With the 660 Ti, you will probably struggle but the 1060 is plenty. Should run perfectly since the requirement is a 970 and the 1060 is more like 980 performance

    I paid close to a $1000 roughly a month ago for this plus an extra sensor so shocked at the price drop. I enjoy it lots and wished I had more time on it. VR driving games with a wheel is amazing.

  •  

    Out of interest, if you wear eyeglasses for vision, can you still use these?

    For example when I watch a 3d movie at the cinema, the 3d glasses go over my eyeglasses - but its not comfortable and the vision isnt great.

    •  

      The headset can comfortably accommodate glasses.

      Glasses can get fogged up due to heat however, and beware of contact between the oculus lenses and glasses as there are reports of lenses scratching. To prevent this you can apply a protector over the area that will be in contact with glasses. There's some curvature to the lenses and they are not completely circular, cutting a screen protector to size will protect these, or just use 42mm watchscreen/face protectors.

    Got one after being tempted by the ~$1000 HTC Vive everytime it's on sale.
    Also grabbed a third sensor, brining the price to $670

  • +1 vote

    Anyone buying PLEASE get the 3rd sensor! It's just a small outlay more but trust me you'll need it. Not the end of the world if you get later on however, Oculus will ship for free anyway and you'll have it within 3 days. But for Robo Recall and Raw Data etc. you will 100% need it as it requires shooting enemies directly behind you where the standard two sensors don't pick up the touch controllers.!!!

  •  

    I’m really considering buying one as my pc is running a gtx 1080 ti so I at least something that will make the most of the games.
    That being said If I do chose to buy it would I need a 3rd sensor?
    I will be playing in a small area in my bedroom.

    •  

      Sounds like its safest to get one.

    •  

      From suggestions on Reddit, I'm going to try 2 sensors first and buy a 3rd if necessary. The sensor from Amazon was only like $10 extra (including postage) when I looked.

      •  

        7 hours later… Since I'm really big on competitive fps, I've just purchased a 3rd sensor through Oculus (1 month to 2 month wait from Amazon and more expensive ~$80 USD vs $69 USD). Unfortunately my first order already shipped a few hours ago so I can't bundle it but hopefully it gets here before the weekend!

  •  

    Having only a decent PC (750Ti that might struggle with VR) I think I'll put the $600 towards an Xbox One X. Although if that does end up supporting the Rift…

    Have my pc in my fairly tiny bedroom, how much space do you need exactly to properly use the occulus?

    •  

      Same here with little space in bedroom, wonder how well will it work? Dammit, as I am another sucker ordering one today. Keep telling myself Vive is a better option.

  •  

    For the non-initiated, what would you say is the 3 biggest differences between the Oculus and Vive?

      That's what I've seen

  • +1 vote

    Actually more differences than that.

    Vive uses a lighthouse system and doesnt need 3rd sensor.

    Prob an important point. Ecosystem. In china and taiwan there are numerous add ons already for the vive. Wireless module. Also the knuckles wh ich enable feet tracking. Also eye tracking is available too. Valve aim is for everything the lighthouse system sees, it can track. Which means add ons like guns etc.

    Oculus chose not to have an open platform which prevents these innovations from happening other than oculus itself.

    That being said. This is a great price. Experienced people who own both, like to use oculus for sit down experiences and vive for everything else.

    •  

      OK firstly as it stands now Light house tracks better.

      But I think you may have it wrong about how it (lighthouse) extends devices. https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2015/05/this-is-how-valves-amazin... Lighthouse - these are "lights" in the 2 stations right - the cameras on the headset do the tracking input based on the light an pattern it can see. It can the work out the orientation of the headset. The Vive headset has a lot of sensors for this - thus its shape, weight and size. So unless the feet attachments have cameras in them and use the existing light house position markers or have some sort of modified lighthouse output the headset is meant to see 100% of the time (and as far as I know lighthouse only supports two sensors so the headset will at best be confused with more sensors - plus you can't always see your feet - think kneeling) then i don't see how this works. The problem with light house is the each component either needs to be independently powered and track its own movement and linked (wifi or cable) to the PC of chained off of the headset. So I see this as adding cost onto these devices. For reference the controls the vive uses each need to be charged often … the rift controllers rarely need batteries swapped.

      Rift uses cameras to do the positional tracking. I actually think that this has more potential to scale. A camera can system can see eveythign in the room and track multiple objects in once camera. Yes you will need enough cameras to cover all angles - but in the future I think image processing has come a long way and the possibility for these cameras to automatically see you are holding a 'gun' or recognise the layout of a room has more potential. However the cost to do this right now is high (money down and CPU power) .. you would need multiple megapixel camera and lenses etc. Possible to do now yes - but I expect the Rift went with low resolution infrared sensor cameras to make item tracking easier and cheaper - these are the choices though which limit the range and field of view allowing light house to best it in positional tracking.

      So I don't think either side got it 100% right but in the future I think it would be beneficial to be able to buy cheap plastic guns or wheel accessories ala Nintendo wii vs high tech battery powered single use items. Lets see where Gen 2 goes.

      It's like getting your sea legs. So people take a little time some people never do.

      I had exactly the same issue with PSVR playing Rush of Blood which was putting me off the whole VR thing. But with the Oculus I must say have never experienced and nausea, expect from when I played a game called Ritchie's Plank, which made me want to throw up. I think it had more to do with having fear of heights than anything else, that game is seriously disturbing..but in a good way though ;)

      I had it in the basket, put the payment details and was just short of pressing the last button but couldn't see the controller in the list. Thanks for confirming I was not alone. Will hold until it's sorted out.

  •  

    The bundle changes when you change shipping destination.
    So you could buy from Amazon for $495 and get remote and Xbox controller or you could go straight to Oculus for a little cheaper with no remote or Xbox controller.
