CONFIRMED: Oculus Rift Will Be Over $1100 [Updated]

Oculus Rift Will Be $US600 ($840)

The first consumer model of the Oculus Rift will run $US599 ($840), the VR company announced today while opening up preorders for their fancy new headset. Oculus says the Rift is expected to ship in March. Update: Shipping has now been pushed back to May, and the pricing for Australian customers is $US649 ($920).

Update, 10:58 AM (AEDT): Oculus has confirmed that all Australian pre-orders of the Rift are in US dollars, not Australian.


That brings the total price for the Rift including shipping to $1103.34 at today’s exchange rates (US$781), as can be seen below from the test order I went to process earlier this morning.

Ouch.

Update #2, 11:09 AM (AEDT): If you’re a Kiwi — your prices are in USD too, although the exchange rate is much more palatable ($1052.64 at the time of writing).
