Consumer version of Oculus Rift could run anywhere from $200-$400

Oculus VR has said it plans to put its Oculus Rift on the market for around $200-$400.

"We want to stay in that $200-$400 price range," OVR co-founder Nate Mitchell said. "That could slide in either direction depending on scale, pre-orders, the components we end up using, business negotiations."

"Whatever it is, it's going to be as cheap as possible," added co-founder Palmer Luckey. "That's really the goal."

While the VR headset still doesn't have a release date, Luckey partially outlined specs for the consumer version.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Luckey said the "jump from DK1 to DK2 is similar to the jump from DK2 to CD1."

The complete specs weren't revealed, but he said there will be a "significant increase" from the latest dev kit and its 1080p display. The refresh rate will also go from "75Hz to 90Hz or higher."

So there you have it. An outline for specs and price without confirmation on said price and specs. At least, now, we have an idea of what to expect when it lands on the market.
