You can now pre-order Oculus' Touch controller for $199 from the Oculus website. If you still need a rift, you can grab the headset for $599, or get a Rift and Touch bundle for $798.

Oculus announced today as the pre-order date for Touch controllers during last week's Oculus Connect conference. Orders will ship out in early December in time for the on-sale date of October 6.

Additional sensors open up room-scale VR, an even more immersive way to experience virtual reality games. Sensors can be purchased for $79 each.
