As most of you probably know, the Oculus Rift has launched and is now available to pre-order. Over at CES 2016, Dell and Alienware have stated that you’ll be able to get a $200 discount on the Oculus Rift in case you buy it in a bundle which contains a PC that’s certified to run the headset. With this discount, the Rift itself will cost you $399.
So far, the list of the certified PCs is rather small, sporting only 2: the Alienware X51 R3 gaming desktop and the Dell XPS 8900 tower as reported by TechRadar:
All together an Alienware X51 and Oculus Rift bundle will run you $1,599 (about £1,094, AU$2,273) and on top of the discount, the Oculus Rift will come with all the bundled software including EVE Valkyrie and Lucky’s tale. Those who already pre-ordered their headsets will also get a $200 (about £136, AU$283) off coupon in February to buy an X51 or Dell XPS 8900 computer if they need a rig capable of powering the Oculus Rift.
You can pre-order these bundles right now although you’ll receive the Rift later in March.
