Oculus is targeting an first quarter of 2016 launch for the headset. The unique two-piece Oculus Touch controller is scheduled for Q2 , so early adopters may have to shell out even more when it arrives. All told, buyers who don’t already have a capable PC rig should expect to spend at least €1,200 for the consumer Oculus VR experience.
Luckey has spoken in the past about the importance of getting VR right out of the gate, because “ bad VR is the only thing that can kill off VR.” While Oculus has partnered with Samsung on a much cheaper VR headset for smartphones, the Rift is the main attraction, and the company understandably doesn’t want to cut corners with its first release.
