Today was the day on which company has started taking pre-orders for Oculus Rift, surprisingly the price is much higher than expected, no less than $ 599. This is unfortunately not the end of bad news, the price does not include shipping, add the shipping and taxes so its exact price would be around $750, the same as a good gaming PC. For that price we will receive glasses (clear), sensors, remote control, cables needed for its operation, Xbox One controller, and two titles namely EVE games: Valkyrie and Lucky’s Tale.
