It was launched by Oculus in early 2016 for 599.99 USD without the Oculus Touch controllers which were released later in December of 2016 for a 199.99 USD. It was later discontinued in 2019 after the announcement of the Oculus Rift S.


The Rift has dual Pentile OLED panels with a resolution of 1080x1200 per eye running at 90hz with a FOV of 110 degrees.
