This Summer Oculus sent shockwaves through the tech and gaming community when they slashed the price of the Rift and Oculus Touch bundle all the way down to a $399 — the same price of just the standalone PSVR headset at the time. Since then HTC has dropped the price of the Vive down to $599, granting a $200 price cut. The big sale is finally coming to an end as the Oculus Rift and Touch bundle will raise to a standard price of $499 starting at 12:00AM PT on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017. That means you have until 11:59PM PT on Monday, September 4th, 2017, to take advantage of the $399 price.
The Summer of Rifts sale isn’t ending without one last big hurrah though. Throughout this weekend there’s going to be one last big flash sale for users to take advantage of and it includes some of the best deals we’ve seen yet:
- Star Trek: Bridge Crew (now $24.99) for Oculus Rift — you can read more about it in our detailed review,
- Gear VR titles: Ocean Rift, Drop Dead, Esper 2, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes and Tactera — all receiving solid discounts,
- Summer Hits Pack ($89.99, amounting to a 35% discount) – Includes four of the season’s most popular titles: Arizona Sunshine (review), Job Simulator (review), The Mage’s Tale (review), and Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality (review,)
- Essentials Pack ($59.99), amounting to a 52% discount) – Delivers four action-packed experiences Apollo 11, The Climb (review), Raw Data (detailed impressions), SUPERHOT VR (review.)
Now is a great time to top up your game library on Oculus Home if you haven’t in a while and get some of the best games at good discounts or finally get around to buying that Oculus Rift with Touch you’ve been putting off. If you do, we highly recommend also grabbing a third sensor for 360-degree tracking.
