Oculus might not have had the biggest E3 — a Lone Echo release date was it’s only announcement — but now that the event is wrapped up its emerging from the shadows and into the sun.
The company just announced its Summer of Rift event, which is to be a season of special promotions and announcements. As you might expect, it’s all kicking off with the summer sale on the Oculus Store. Discounts go live tomorrow and we don’t have any specific promotions yet, but Oculus is promising you can save on some of Rift’s biggest games including bundle deals for titles like The Unspoken and Superhot VR. Gear VR won’t be missing out on the deals, either.
Perhaps the more enticing offer is for those that don’t yet have a Rift, though. As we reported a few weeks back, Amazon and others will be offering new Rift and Touch buyers $100 in Oculus Store credit while stocks last. Given the sale is about to kick off, there’s a chance to grab a lot of great VR games and apps here on top of apps like Robo Recall and Lucky’s Tale that you get for free.
Don’t blow all your cash in one go, though; we’re also expecting the Steam summer sale to go live in the near future, which will no doubt offer yet more discounts on both Rift and Vive games. Who needs the real sun this summer when you’ve got the virtual one?
