The new $598 price point is down from $798 previously. If you already have Rift, Touch is now only $99, and the price of an additional Oculus Sensor is now $59.
Additionally, Oculus announced that Robo Recall, the brand-new VR shooter from Epic Games is now available for free with Touch.
Oculus aims to bring the cost of entry to Rift as much as it can, and has been working with hardware partners to offer Oculus-ready machines.
HTC's VR unit Vive said in a statement later in the day that it would not match the price cut being offered by rival Oculus, according to Reuters.
