Here’s another chance to capitalize on Thanksgiving extended Holiday weekend offers before they finally vaporize. We didn’t report on this last week when the deal was purportedly announced, but it seems the Oculus Rift and its Touch controllers, considered to be the best VR package available, is now selling for $349 until end of day today (Cyber Monday). This price drop is a further shave of $50 from the October deal, and the price is matched by online retailers Best Buy and Newegg.
The PlayStation VR bundles are also comparable on price, but this Oculus deal beats the competing $599 Vive VR package by some distance. The Rift and Touch set, meanwhile, offers headset, two wireless controllers, two room sensors, and seven games and apps, including Lucky’s Tale, Medium, Toybox, Quill, Dead and Buried, Dragon Front and Robo Recall.
But industry analysts are warning that more state-of-the-art VR systems are beckoning, and an Oculus developer edition is expected to emerge in 2018. 2017 thus far has proved to be the year of VR price drops, so if you’re in the market, and you’d already decided to sit it out, it might be time to take advantage now.
