will NOT arrive in 2016 with this HIGH price of the rift and is not going to be popular.

Your VR experience is unfortunately NOT for the masses...so sad

I wonder what this means for the Vive, the Rift is subsidized, selling at or below cost (allegedly), and only comes with 1 xbox controller. Considering HTC/Vive want to make a profit and they're including lighthouse and two VR controllers, Vive fans might want to consider selling a kidney.

I've been following this since it's beginning and my heart sank when I saw the price. No clue how they plan to sell to a big market for this price point. I'm so angry but mostly sad.

this is higher than a new console on launch day.. which comes with a line up of games.

this price point is awful.. i have been raving about VR and what it was gonna be like for months/years now. suddenly every one i know.. at least your average gamer is not going to be able to afford this.

Yeah, that's going to be a difficult talk for a lot of us to have. I've been telling my techie friends to get a Rift, and a lot of them are excited about it, but for the cost to get it shipped here you could buy a PS4, an Xbox One, and probably another game or two above whatever is bundled with them. I just can't recommend the Rift at this point to anyone that isn't a rabid VR fanboy like myself, and even I'm starting to regret my purchase decision.

This will be the first big piece of Oculus News I won't be sharing. 😞

I totally agree!

Price is too high for the mass market.
Even when taking into account that a power full PC is also needed.

Nevertheless I just ordered one just because I wanted one.
Waiting for April now.
