Oculus Rift and Touch Black Friday deal makes it a little cheaper

Oculus Rift and Touch Black Friday deal makes it a little cheaper

As well as the Rift VR headset and Touch Controllers, you also get six free games included in the price.

Now the company is going one better with the best price we've ever seen for the pioneering virtual reality headset. Back in July the Oculus Rift with touch controller got a price cut to $399 for a limited time making it much more affordable and the Black Friday sale cuts another $50 off that price. This bundle is almost half the cost of the Rift when it first launched at $600 and when the device first launched you also had to but the controllers driving the cost up to $800. The deals from Newegg and Oculus itself packs in the aforementioned titles and a seventh game on top called Dragon Front.

While the bundle includes two room sensors, you'll need a third if you want the full room scaling effect.

To use the new bundle, you do need a PC capable of running the Oculus Rift - with several recommended options available on the Oculus website - but the rest of the required hardware comes bundled. They're available for $60.

It also definitely helps that Oculus and HTC are probably looking to unveil direct sequels for their original Rift and Vive devices before long. Or are the price cuts a sign the Rift isn't taking off in the way Oculus had hoped.
