Now, Oculus is hoping to win over those who were previously burned by pricing, cutting the Rift+Touch bundle down to just $399/£399- A far cry from the original £700 bundle price.

The latest reduction means that the Rift is now being sold for just half the price Oculus were charging for the package five months ago, which could be good news for online casino players looking to embrace the VR casino world.

You can get the Oculus Rift with Touch controllers for £399.99 from Amazon.co.uk here. This will include in-store, Amazon, Best Buy, and others. The Oculus deal is also featured on newegg.com.

By comparison, HTC Vive costs £759/$799, while PlayStation VR has an RRP of £349/$399 without camera, additional controllers or games, though it is now quite often discounted and bundled.

The cynic in me also wonders how long it will be before HTC and Oculus VR release their second-generation consumer VR kits.

Back in 2014/2015, Oculus was the go-to company as far as virtual reality was concerned, then in 2016, things began snowballing downhill pretty quickly.

If you have been considering diving into virtual reality but have been put off by the price of the VR headset hardware.
