In perhaps the best Rift bundle we’ve seen yet, you can pick up a VR Ready PC and Oculus Rift headset for $999 today only, plus $160 in games and store credit.
According to the deal page on Amazon, you’ll save $300 in this bundle which is said to be available today only and “while supplies last”. The page breaks down the costs as follows:
|CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8020A||$699.99|
|Oculus Rift – Virtual Reality Headset||$599.99|
|Total Bought Separately:|
While the bundle page itself calls the PC “Oculus Ready”, the specs indicate that the system fits the broader definition of ‘VR Ready’, including being designated specifically as “Radeon VR Ready Premium“, which matches the VR Ready recommended spec set by Nvidia, Vive, and SteamVR. That is to say, this system ought to work fine with the Vive in addition to the Rift.
The $999 bundle also includes $100 credit toward games and apps on the Oculus Store and a free copy of EVE: Valkyrie (normally $60), a multiplayer VR sci-fi dogfighting game.
If you’re interested in the Vive rather than the Rift, you can pick up the same VR Ready CyberpowerPC for $699 separately—(which isn’t quite as cheap as the bundle, but still a solid price for a VR Ready system—and then go save $100 on the Vive thanks to this Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal. If you came too late and missed the deal, you may still be able to get $100 in Oculus Store credit.
