Australia Say no to Oculus Rift

oculos rift is shit

This guy must be looking at the price hey?

$350 they said…   Way back when Oculus Rift the consumer version was said many times to be around $350 when it was released which relieved a lot of people that were paying more for the developer version.  Now we are faced with the reality that the unit is twice that.

 

You know, I’m going to be perfectly honest with you. We’re roughly in that ballpark… but it’s going to cost more than that. And the reason for that is that we’ve added a lot of technology to this thing beyond what existed in the DK1 and DK2 days. :Palmer Luckey founder of Oculus Rift. For those that don’t know Palmer sold his business to Facebook for 2 Billion Dollars.

599USD for americans but if your Australian we have to pay $649USD which at the time of writing is 923.27AUD oh and we also have to pay $130USD for shipping which is about $180AUD.  It doesn’t cost that much to ship to Australia it would cost about $80 Australian. So why the extra $50 for Australians?  Its not tax or anything its just because they can. And the ludicrous amount to ship the thing here? for $180 I could get a 80″ Flat screen delivered now that’s just rude.

 

Skip the Facebook Oculus Rift out of principal.

We have a alternative and that’s coming from Valve’s HTC Vive which should be better than the rift from what we are reading.
