Oculus Rift S Price Slashed To $300

Facebook announced in September that they will be discontinuing the legendary Rift product line in 2021. As a nice departing gesture, they’ve decided to slash the price to just $300.

Back in March 2019, the flagship Oculus Rift S launched for $400. This price point is in line with many high-end entertainment devices looking to ride the wave between relatively affordable and quality. For $400, the Oculus Rift S was a pretty great headset.

The Rift S was built in a partnership with Lenovo to become the successor to the OG Oculus Rift. The Rift S came with a bump in resolution and room-scale tracking. Not to mention, the headset got rid of those pesky external sensors. No sensors allowed players to not have to worry about stumbling on them, the tedious process of setting them up, or the price creep of adding additional ones.

Now that Oculus is shifting to a hybrid “best of both worlds” Oculus Quest line, the Rift line is starting to get phased out. The Quest 2 has an option that let’s you connect to your PC for additional power called Oculus Link.

If you currently own a Rift VR headset and are worried about the future of the headset, don’t worry. Although there will likely not be many more Rift exclusives, any good SteamVR game will still be able to be played on your device.

For a respectable 25% discount, the Rift S for $300 is a bargain that I would recommend to anyone who hasn’t jumped in to the world of VR yet.
