With the Oculus Rift priced at $599 and the Oculus Touch $199, the combined price of the Oculus experience comes to $798, a dollar less than the HTC Vive. PlayStation launches its VR device next week, which will be cheaper - $400, but the Move controllers and camera aren't included in the price. That brings the price of PSVR somewhere closer to $500.

The Oculus Touch comes with two sensors, and a third one will also be available for $79, which puts the price of the total package at $877 to deliver a roomscale VR experience. That means for Oculus to be comparable with HTC Vive in terms of capability it will cost you $77 more than HTC Vive.

Oculus also showed the final design of the controllers, and tho they don't look much different from what we already saw, they did make some minor improvements.
