The Oculus Rift costs a staggering $599

Probably not this one, then.

Did you think the Oculus Rift would be $350? Not so fast: Oculus is asking $599 US for its sweet chunk of virtual reality equipment.

As promised, pre-orders for the Oculus Rift opened this morning. The $599 bundle includes the headset, sensor, Oculus Remote, cables, Xbox One Controller, and its two flagship games. Those listed for sale as of press time will ship in April of this year (this date apparently shifts as more are sold).

Oculus is also planning a Reddit AMA for later this afternoon.

Of note to MMO players, the Rift will ship with a free copy of CCP’s EVE-spinoff VR shooter EVE Valkyrie, as announced last month. Oculus’ Touch controller, however, will not make the launch; it’s been bumped to the second half of 2016.
