The Oculus Rift may not be out yet, but the device that could revolutionise VR gaming has already sold more than 40 million copies.
But how much would you pay for a new Oculus Rift?
Read moreThe Oculus Rift is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and other online retailers.
To make matters worse, it costs more than $400 (£250).
This means that if you want to buy a new Rift, you would need to shell out $500 to get the headset, which is roughly the same as a $400 smartphone.
But how much is it worth?
To find out, I contacted Oculus Rift head of product, Rob Clark, and asked him if he was willing to put a price tag on the headset.
Clark said: “It’s a lot of money, especially for a high-end consumer headset.
That’s why we put out a lot more units than we think is fair to the average consumer.”
While it’s true that the Oculus Rift has sold more units, it’s important to remember that the total number of Rift units sold so far is very small compared to the number of consumers that have bought them.
And, of course, there’s no guarantee that the Rift will be released in time for Christmas, as some retailers have run out of stock.
While the Rift is still relatively cheap compared to many other VR headsets, it does have its own set of issues.
While its low price means it’s easy to find on Amazon, you’ll have to pay a premium for the Rift.
Oculus Rift costs $399, but you can pre-register for the $600 Rift Early Access Edition, which includes access to all the latest updates and the ability to play games in virtual reality.
The early version of the Oculus Touch is a much better headset than the Rift, but it still costs $400 more, and you can only buy it as part of a bundle.
The Oculus Touch costs $379 (£269) for a single-person, two-person headset, or $449 (£279) for the full package.
If you’re looking for a VR headset for a more affordable price, look at the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, or PlayStation VR.
All have some kind of VR content, but they all cost significantly more.
As with all VR headsets that require you to pay extra money for extra content, you need to be aware of what you’re getting into if you plan on using these headsets for more than a week or two.
If buying an Oculus headset, it will cost you more than the price of the HTC or PlayStation consoles, but there’s nothing to be ashamed of as it’s the first VR headset that actually works with your smartphone.
If you’ve got an Oculus Touch, you can buy the HTC and PlayStation VR on the Oculus Store.
