As promised, Oculus has opened pre-orders for its first consumer Rift virtual reality headset. Now that you can actually lock your order in, we finally know one of the most important details: just how much it will cost.

In order to bring home the Rift, you’ll need to budget $600. When we spoke with Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe at E3, he reiterated a previous statement about what interested purchasers should expect to pay for a new PC that supports VR and the headset itself.

“I want to see, and hope to see, full package Rift plus PC for even less, for down to $1,300 or $1,200.,” Iribe told us. “The $1,500 statement was around what people can expect to spend for a full package at retail. You’ll buy parts a lot cheaper. If you do it yourself and you’re putting together your own PC, you’ll be able to do it for a lot less than $1,500. This is something we’re really pushing on our retail partners and our OEM PC partners, we’re going to be out there heavily promoting it at $1,500 or less for the full package. Rift is only a small fraction of that. Most of that cost is the PC.”

Based on the Rift price, you’re looking at a PC in the neighborhood of $900 to hit Iribe’s mark. If you’re looking to purchase parts to build your own from scratch, that comes down to $600 - $700.

The minimum spec for the Rift has only slightly changed since it was announced last year. The difference is the increase in USB ports from two to four to account for additional devices connected (an Xbox One controller or wireless adapter, for instance).

Pre-orders for the Rift include EVE Valkyrie, and everyone that purchases one will also get Playful’s 3D platformer, Lucky’s Tale. You won’t be charged for the Rift until it ships in March, and pre-orders won’t “sell out.” If you don’t get in on the first wave, your ship date will simply be pushed later.

Yeah, no thanks

Er seems like a cool thing to own but I'm far too busy with the titles I got on my consoles to get something for my PC.
