Oculus Rift hits lowest ever price for Black Friday US

In the so-called Summer of Rift, Oculus dropped the price of its VR headset with Touch controllers to just $399. Then, last month, it made the price cut permanent.

Now the company is going one better with the best price we’ve ever seen for the pioneering virtual reality headset.

From today until November 27, The Oculus Rift with Touch controllers bundle is just $349, an additional $50 off the discounted price.

As part of the bundle, you’ll get the headset, wireless controllers, two room sensors and seven free games (Lucky’s Tale, Medium, Toybox, Quill, Dead and Buried, Dragon Front, and Robo Recall)

The deal is available from Oculus itself, multiple retailers as well as Amazon with free Prime shipping.

Buy now: Get the Oculus Rift + Touch bundle for $349

The precipitous price drop is quite startling, considering a Rift + Touch bundle cost around $800 at one point.

Considering you’ll still need a very capable PC to run Rift experiences, the cut is most welcome.

Minimum specs for a PC are:
CPU: Intel Core i3-6100 / AMD FX-4350
GPU (Nvidia): GTX 1050 Ti / GTX 960 / (AMD): RX 470 / R9 290
Memory: 8GB RAM

While the bundle includes two room sensors, you’ll need a third if you want the full room scaling effect. They’re available for $60. Oculus itself is also offering deals on game bundles.

Is now the perfect time to get a high-end VR headset? Or are the price cuts a sign the Rift isn’t taking off in the way Oculus had hoped. Share your thoughts with us @TrustedReviews on Twitter.
