**JULY 16th, STILL OOS.PLEASE STOP EXPIRING THIS, IF OUT OF STOCK CHECK LATER, IT WILL BE REPLENISHED**

Register for email alerts on the Touch Controllers, when you receive your email the bundle will be back live.


GLITCH - Currys are sending 2X boxes of Touch Controllers (worth £99), a quick check on eBay shows these will net you £70-90, making your outlay for this more like £320~

Checked Quidco following the Rift sale, this seems to be the cheapest base price @ £398.99 anyway, but with 1% Quidco/TCB you'll save £3.19 making the total price £395.80 (£320~ with glitch).

Might cancel my Amazon order now and save £4.

This (as with all Rift purchases) includes an Xbox One Wireless Controller and 7 free games:

Medium, Quill, Robo Recall, Dead and Buried, Luckys Tale, Rip Coil, Toy box, Rec Room, Mountain Goat Mountain. Add to that Google Blocks, Google Earth, Mission ISS, Dragon Front.

At OP, would much rather go with Amazon for the customer service instead of Currys!

I'll knock up a basic email tomorrow night stating:

The website showed 2 sets of controllers (screenshot)
The checkout showed 2 sets of controllers (screenshot)
The discount showed that 2 sets of controllers were being included (someone earlier did the maths)
When one of the sets of controllers was removed, the price was (correctly/incorrectly) reduced further to £330 ish

Which leads me to believe I own the 2nd set of controllers and give them 2 options:

Apologise for the rude email with, no name, having to state customer number in my reply which I won't be (sod it, let them do the work) and inform me they will not be pursuing the matter further as there was no mistake made (just a very good deal)
OR
I will happily let them arrange for the 2nd set of controllers to be sent back once I have received a voucher for the value of £70.02 (whatever the further mistake difference in price was, but I paid via voucher so would ask for a voucher back, because I'm "nice" like that) and will even take said controllers to my nearest currys to do the exchange there and then. I WON'T be sending back controllers without the voucher first, as I don't trust them to make another mistake on that front.

Just to add, the £349.99 savings advertised for the £398.99 set is for the headset + 2 sets of touch controllers.

Rift headset = £549 (rrp)
Touch controllers = £99.99 (rrp)
Total cost rrp = £549 + (2 x £99.99) = £748.98

Savings = £748.98 - £398.99 = £349.99 which is exactly as advertised!

I want this just to play with tilt brush (a friend has one) - but still way too much.

I'd agree, but for those wanting to locally collect or have a physical shop to deal with (in addition to saving some £) I thought it was worth a post.

Agreed. Return to Amazon for literally any reason and its instant refund as soon as they register the postal label has been scanned by RMG. At least that's my experience. Thumbs up for the cheaper price, but for my money the CS of Amazon is worth the extra couple quid.

Eee Amazon all way. Currys will take a **** and keep your money for a bit and you will lose nerves sorting return

It doesn't allow to add to basket it looks like out of stock

That's a crazy price. Aren't these around £700?

Sure its cheap(er), but its still not worth the money to play a bunch of pretty poor games

might cancel your order and save £1.50 ROFL. not worth the labour.
Not a hot deal either as the other one is only £1.50 more so its the "normal" price, plus amazon refunds are so easy.

This is a fantastic price but a few things to consider:

You need a high end PC with a good graphics card
In a year or so the next gen will be released, potentially un-tethered, higher resolution etc.
Oculus uses a closed system and tracking is inferior to HTC (vive.) It's much less likely to be supported by devices in future

There are some great games and Fallout and Doom coming out soon. Also, if you're into racing sims (or xxx) then the experience is unbelievable. Beware, can become very expensive, very quickly once you start buying sim equipment.

£1.50? Math not your strong suit?

This destroys PSVR if you have a beefy enough PC to run them. Amazing price

wow this has come down, but this or the htc? or wait .....

Nice

Remember Op you may also want to mention that you are also getting a XBOX One Controller and Wireless adapter for this price and SEVEN games!!!! My sons games run fine on an i7 920 @ 4Ghz and a r390

Nope making money is through - sorry is a couple of quid, whatever. the point being that its the normal price ( as per the amazon deal ).

I seem to remember seeing that if your return ratio gets too high, Amazon will cancel your account??

Thanks, I originally ordered from Amazon with delivery next Monday. For £4 I have now selected next day delivery through Currys, so thanks OP.

Please note I have been unable to cancel my Amazon order as my controller has already been processed (as that was arriving tomorrow). This means that I will have to pay for the Amazon item as well, before sending it back. Not a problem for me but worth baring in mind if you are thinking of doing the same.

That's great I bought this a month ago for 600£ .......

Have you tried it? Because while sure, there arent games on the level of Witcher 3, Battlefield 1 etc, there are plenty of good ones.

Robo Recall, Arizona Sunshine, Chronos, Edge of Nowhere, Onward, A Mages Tale, Eleven Table Tennis, Echo Arena, Elite Dangerous, to name some of the notable ones.

Hell, Elite Dangerous with a hotas is worth it on it's own for me, absolutely love that it VR!

Each to their own of course, but it's definitely been worth the money in my experience.

Either both are hot or both are not. Surely HUKD's is about the price, not the retailer?

And that's the key thing really. It's going to take more than a few bolt-ons for Superhot and Elite Dangerous to really sell this thing to the masses. That's why if any VR kit is going to succeed atm it's likely going to be PSVR. It's easily the most affordable (yet least tech-advanced) and has a lot more to offer e.g. RE7, Skyrim and Moss.

You wouldn't guess that considering the kind of loyalty Amazon tend to inspire on here tbh.

Fallout 4 vr is due out soon. Rift is awsome, period. Project cars and pcars 2 (soon), assetto corsa, pavlov... Along with others mentioned above. This is a bargain. (Assuming you have the tech to run it)

If you got one of the free GearVR Headsets and have a decent phone S6 up, try VRidge and pair it with 4 PS3 cameras and 2 PS Move Motion Controllers and a ping pong ball with an LED in it, for a cheaper but just as good alternative to this.

Check out Daley Tech (not me, not affiliated) on Youtube for setup guides and demos.

Oh I agree, price is definitely the biggest factor, as well as actually being able to try one first. It's not for everyone, but with price drops like this it's sure to bring some more people into vr

I'd just like them to discount the touch controllers for all of those of us that bought the RIFT before the controllers were available and the price dropped. You can now buy two rifts with controllers for what the early adopters paid for one RIFT by itself!

kos1c

That's a crazy price. Aren't these around £700?



Not any more. This is a manufacturer's price cut, valid for the next 6 weeks, and any dealer charging more is gouging you.

From what I've read, the current "Killer App" for OR is "Star Trek Bridge Crew"

The controllers seem to be £99 currently. Is that the standard price?

VR is great but the games can be expensive. Robo Recall, luckies tale, Arizon sunshine, tilt brush. There are some amazing games for VR. Doom VFR should be amazing. Story driven games are really imersive too.

You also got a box of extra touch controllers? That via web or store?

I managed to get £80 credit back from Amazon as I complained about the £100 store credit. So I've effectively paid £320
