Facebook's Oculus Rift Finally Has A Price Tag!

If you are a virtual reality enthusiast, the Oculus Rift’s price tag won’t be a bother  but if you are not, the price will definitely make you cringe.
Before seeing the price tag, I went from
To get the Oculus Rift, which is only available on pre-order, you will need to shed $599 (N119,800), that is the cost of getting a Playstation 3 or even the HTC M9.
CYDG8N7UMAAHDuc…And guess what? Despite the outrage it received, Angry gamers clogged Oculus servers as they raced to enter their credit card number.
The Oculus Rift headset is tested by attendees at the Eurogamer Expo at Earls Court in London.
If you are thinking of buying one, $599 is not all you might be spending, you would also need to ensure your computer is powerful enough to run VR software. If it is not,  you’ll need to add the cost of a new graphics card to beef up your existing PC. (To check if your PC is capable, click here) But here are the specs Oculus Rift recommends

  • Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD R9 290 equivalent or greater
  • CPU: Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
  • Memory: 8GB+ RAM
  • Video Output: Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output
  • USB Ports: 3x USB 3.0 ports plus 1x USB 2.0 port
  • OS: Windows 7 SP1 64 bit or newer

It is safe to say that if this product fails to live up to the hype, it is going to backfire heavily on Facebook, but we might have to wait until March to find out.
So, who is willing to pre-order so I can do a review on it 😀
