Amazon Starts Oculus Touch Pre-Orders, Lists Possible Price And Release Date
We’ll probably know just how much Oculus Touch costs and when it ships later on today, but Amazon UK might have spilled the beans early.
The online retailing giant has listed the anticipated position tracked controllers for the Oculus Rift on its site just ahead of the Oculus Connect 3 keynote. You can pre-order it now for £189.99, and it’s apparently shipping on November 23rd.
That price is consistent with an earlier listing from another major UK retailer, Game. It works out to about $241. Oculus Rift costs £549 in the UK, which works out to around $698 in the US. The Rift is actually sold at $599 in the US, suggesting Touch could hit a price closer to $200 when sold in the US. Keep in mind that the UK retailers list products with 20% value-added tax (VAT) included, so the listing’s actual price is around £152, which works out to around $193.
It’s the first time we’ve heard this release date, however, and would mean we have around a month and a half until the controllers get here. Previously, German retail partner MediaMarkt listed the controllers for launch on November 21st.
True or not, we’ll know for sure when the OC3 keynote gets underway at 10:00 am PT.
