The Oculus Rift officially has a price point. The virtual reality headset from the company owned by Facebook will sell for $599. It’s up for pre-order now.
The only problem? The site is down. This screenshot provided by the folks at NeoGAF user War Eagle shows the price.
That $599 price tag seems like a tall order, but it didn’t come without warning. Oculus founder Palmer Luckey has been explaining that this product will be premium for a few weeks now. Premium is right, but hopefully the hardware matches the cost.
According to the site, the Oculus Rift should ship in March 2016. It’s down now, and I imagine it’ll be a bit before it’s up and functioning without fail again.
It includes a link to a compatibility checker that will scan your PC for hardware stats.
