    Comes bundled with VR Sports Challenge and The Unspoken.

    Oculus' proprietary motion controller, Oculus Touch, is launching 6th December and will cost $199 for a pair of these, the VR company announced at its press conference moments ago.
    That may sound spendy, but the good news is that they'll include two games bundled into their cost: VR Sports Challenge and The Unspoken.

    You may recall The Unspoken as the two-player magic-dueling game by Insomniac (of Ratchet & Clank and Sunset Overdrive fame). I spent upwards of a half-hour playing The Unspoken back in April and had a grand ol' time with the VR title.

    Oculus CEO and co-founder Brendan Irebe also announced that Oculus Touch will support room-scale VR. To do this, you'll need to buy extra sensors to accomodate the larger space. These sensors will cost $79 a piece and will be available upon the Touch's 6th December launch.

    Pre-orders for Oculus Touch will be available on 10th October.

    Sensors!
    How many sensors do you need for room scale?

    I knew they will include some other stuff, those 2 games could be a good plus.

    But the additional $79 is a totally different history, besides of needing an additional room for that

    Oculus recommended 3 sensors. One with the HMD, one with the Touch controls, and a 3rd for $79 USD. Smaller areas can? get away with 2.

    I still think that's a bit too much by the way just found out Oculus is owned by Facebook, didn' t know that, I wonder what kind of integration if any they have planned for the future? Also just found out Oculus is going to be releasing a more affordable VR system, have you hear about that yet?

    Me too, but if you already have the Rift it will be tenting.

    Another thing I don't know is if the controller will be also compatible with the GearVR or other games not VR ready.
