Oculus Rift More Affordable Than Ever For Australia


Are you tired of the days of massive mark ups for our market and exorbitant shipping costs when looking at buying a VR headset? Well, it seems that Oculus have finally heard your cries of pain, as they have now completely removed delivery costs for their Oculus Rift headset to Australia. On top of this, they have also removed the artificial mark up they had for Australian buyers at launch.

What does this mean in dollar terms? It means the Oculus Rift goes from being $648 + postage + artificial inflation for just the headset, which previously came through to ~$800-$900 USD, to a flat $648 USD or roughly $860 AUD for the headset and touch controllers. This means that the Oculus is now the cheapest of the big name PC VR headsets, undercutting the HTC Vive which goes for $1200+ at local retailers.

If you’ve been looking to pick up a Rift but have been waiting for a price drop, this might be the time for you to jump in. This price is accessible directly through the Oculus Rift website.
