Phew! I was worried I was going to impulse buy an Oculus Rift. Would have really cheesed off my wife, and probably not been used very much. Well! The price for the rig has been revealed to be $600, which makes it even too rich for my economically irresponsible ass (for the moment).



The first consumer model of the Oculus Rift will run you $599, the VR company announced today while opening up preorders for their fancy new headset.

That’s five hundred ninety-nine US dollars. No word on whether it will come with giant enemy crabs.

Oculus says the Rift is expected to ship in March. Buying one will also net you an Xbox One controller and two games (Lucky’s Tale and EVE Valkyrie), but you’ll need a high-end PC if you want to actually play them.
