The Touch controllers now cost half what they used to
That $199 price tag on a pair of Touch controllers for the Oculus Rift felt like total sticker shock, and I say that as someone who was impressed with the tech after trying games like Wilson’s Heart leading up to the December launch. Thankfully, it hasn’t taken Oculus long at all to issue a price cut.
Instead of going all in with the Oculus Rift and Touch for $798, you’re now looking at spending $598 for the lot. Or, purchased individually, that’s $499 for the Rift itself, $99 for a pair of Touch controllers, and $59 for the standalone Oculus Sensor if you’re interested in getting another one for room-scale tracking. This new pricing is already reflected on Oculus’ own site and online retailers like Amazon.
Not coincidentally, Epic Games’ Touch-exclusive Robo Recall released today. Looks neat!
Now let’s see if Oculus bringing down the price of entry will light a fire under HTC.
