Oculus cost $1500 "all-in" according to CEO

At the re/code conference Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe said that the soon-to-be-available virtual reality Oculus headset and the computer needed to run it will cost “in the $1,500 range.”

This includes the cost of the computer if you were to buy a new one. The official recommended specs to run the Oculus headset have been released

·        NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater

·        Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater

·        8GB+ RAM

·        Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output

·        2x USB 3.0 ports

·        Windows 7 SP1 or newer

Plenty of sites have approximated the cost of this type of computer if bought new, about $1100. That means the Oculus headset will cost around $400 which matches what the 2nd generation developer kit ($350) from them costs.
