Oculus Drops Rift Bundle Price To $379 For A Limited Time

Oculus has set the bar with great deals for the best VR content throughout the year and it continues with a bundle special and end of the year Winter sale on software.


Coupled with the reveal of the Oculus Go, the Rift bundle with Oculus Touch saw a significant price drop down to $399. That's already a great price point for some truly immersive gaming but, for a limited time, there are a few more bucks to be saved. From now until December 20 at 11:59 P.M. PT, consumers can bring home a Rift for the Holidays for $379.

The limited-time promotion nets you the following, courtesy of the Oculus blog:

  • Touch controllers to navigate zero-Gtake down zombies, or direct your friends in combat
  • Integrated 360° spatial audio for the most immersive experience possible
  • Two sensors (Pro Tip: Pick up a third sensor to unlock full room-scale potential)
  • Access to amazing games, creative tools, and more, including growing esports titles like The Unspoken and AAA arcade shooters like Robo Recall

The deal is available on Best Buy and Amazon for the same price of $379. There's also a Winter Sale for Oculus Rift software with up to 80% off of roughly 250 titles. As is customary with the Oculus Team, there are three seven-game bundles priced at $89.99 and they include some of the best content the platform has to offer is you're getting an early start on your VR library.  The HTC Vive has a few deals going on for software, as well.

Once you get your Oculus Rift set up, you can check out the beta for the new Rift Core 2.0 which is available as of December 6. The new update will include Oculus Dash and an update to the Home hub. Read up on the Santa Cruz prototype as well.
