At long last Oculus announced the Oculus Touch price and release date, confirming that the anticipated controllers will release this year.
Wow 200$ for controllers. Good luck
Lol this is made for trump he's the one who can afford it. I sense a massive flop..
2 of those and you could buy the Ps4Pro or PSVR lol
For the price of Oculus and those controllers you could buy both a PS4 and PSVR and be ready to go.
As much as I loved the Bullettrain experience that I could test with these controllers. I would never buy them for 200. Thats just too much
People pay 150 for a single XBox elite controller which is much less sophisticated and sold in the millions.
So to get the complete Rift experience you need to spend $800/€900? That's, ehh, pricey.
Room scale feature costs an additional $79
so its... $600 for the headset $200 for the touch $79 for the room scale thing $5 for a bucket just in case you puke. yes, its quite pricey
@Perjoss And in Europe the headset itself is €700 and €200 for the controllers, no idea bout Euro pricing for the room scale thing.
Don't forget you need a monster PC too (plus $1,000)
And that my friends is why Sony decided to go with tech they already had and millions of consumers already bought previously. Very smart by Sony. Of course touch will undoubetebly be leagues better but I'm ok with using move controllers if it means not having to pay hundreds more :)
Of course it's expensive, and much more expensive then ps VR.... That's because it's much better.
Ive tried both, they are on par.
General consensus is that the PSVR headset is the best design and more comfortable of the 3.
$200 for the controller(s) Do they not understand that people dont have a lot of money???
People have plenty of money. It's all relative. $20 is a lot for a homeless person, $200 is a lot for a McD's employee, $2000 is a lot for a middle class worker... there is a market for everyone, and they are pricing accordingly.
The whole setup is more expensive than the vive which in my opinion is better than oculus. But it does work. It's just going to be hard for them to sell it all. I do have to give it up to them on the social thing though. Very cool demonstration they did with games, drawing, picture taking, etc. I was impressed with that.
I thought the facial gestures like smiling and whatnot were cool. As a Vive owner I wonder how that works and whether its possible with my headset
Selling your product in bits and pieces usually doesn't bode well with consumers. It kinda fragments the user-base.
So... $600 for the Oculus $200 for the motion controllers + $1,000 for a capable PC that can run it $1,700 + taxes to get Oculus Wow, forget it. I am going with PSVR. It may not be a high end device but is way more affordable, gets the job done, is the best headset of the three and has more and better games.
The HTC Vive just keeps laughing at the Rift.........
It's just as expensive and its controllers are worse.
The Rift is rated the better experience, and the controllers being worse is still to be determined by hands on testing.
People cry about those truly sophisticated controllers with finger tracking! being expensive..yet buy XBox controllers which don't even have positional tracking for 150$ in the millions.
That was a million not millionS, and the data was from MS which Im REALLY skeptical about it being true seeing as they lie about everything...
