Bah! I am trying … trying … to suppress the urge to take Oculus up on this offer.
What are the downsides? Other than just saving my money and putting it to better use that is
If this is Oculus dumping some extra hardware before a potential refresh in October (a rumour I heard) then its’ still a good deal as I would expect the price to go back up +$100 (from the sale) and +$100 for new hardware - putting the price back where it was at launch time.
If this is a sign of ‘bad’ sales of the hardware (ie: VR is not capturing the market like companies are hoping it might) then the price is intended to spur purchases (but then why is Vive sticking at their price point)?
If there is another year of this hardware, the price can’t go much lower without seriously damaging the Oculus (I know Facebook has deep pockets but there is only so low any business person is going to want to go before they abandon the project).
It’s not the best room scale … but the price!
What are the odds that Fallout 4 VR is going to be locked away from the Rift because Zenimax??
I have planned purchases coming up in the near future (CnC router, VKB MCG and throttle). So many decisions!
