CEO of Oculus, Brendan Iribe is attending the Code Conference this week in sunny Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Brendan was discussing the total Oculus Rift package price which includes the PC to run it and the Rift itself.
“We are looking at an all-in price, if you have to go out and actually need to buy a new computer and you’re going to buy the Rift … at most you should be in that $1,500 range,”
Oculus have already clearly defined the Oculus Rift recommended hardware for the first consumer rift. Based on that recommendation I have listed the parts needed and their costs to build an Oculus Rift Ready PC at around $1,000.
We can therefore conclude the Oculus Rift will be sold for around $499 which is a nice number used by many devices.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
