Oculus Rift VR bundle will stay at $399 forever (for now)

Facebook just announced that the summer's sale price is permanent.

It will only cost you $400 to look like this.

Good news for budget VR shoppers: it's a good year for discounts.

Facebook and Oculus announced that the Rift and Touch, Oculus' VR hardware for PCs that launched last year, is keeping its summer discount price of $399. That's roughly half what Rift and Touch used to cost. Hopefully you didn't buy it when it was more expensive.

As we said before, $399 also undercuts PlayStation VR.

That being said, Oculus has plans for new VR hardware for PCs in the next year or so with a more wireless system called Project Santa Cruz.
