I wonder if this means it will be cheaper in Canada finally. Probably not though as they’ll jack the price here just cause they can

US adds taxes after the fact, whereas here in Europe we are used to see that included.
Oculus is one of the very few who has actually made it their policy to include shipping and taxes for your location in the store price.

If I take acount for my taxes and shipping I usually get charged for later, the S is €299..

Yes there are taxes, but the thing is we never benefit from the exchange rate on this kind of consumer product. At best 1$ = 1 €, but usually it's more due to taxes.


450€ is store retail price, before shipping cost to my home.


That being said, considering the price of the headset and the computer to run it...50€ won't make a difference

Remember that we have 20% sales tax in France .


400$ at today's conversion rate is about 360 euros x 1.2 that's 432 euros. Still a bit less than 450 but hey

25% here.

And often shipping for something like this is €40-€50..
And they consider that as part of the price.
So it's 25 % on item+shipping..

And then they charge €13 as a fee to charge me the tax ..

Oculus charging €450 including taxes and shipping..

I got no real issue with that.

Like getting stuff from virpil you either just accept it's going to be 30% more to pay or you don't buy.
I did former, a lot recently..

Not to sure ill keep my preorder for The Rift S. Sounds like its even worse for night flying compared to the CV1. Reverb sounds the same also granted nice high resolution it has bad color and image quality throughout the spectrum

It's something similar in italy for goods coming directly from outside EU, 22% on value + shipping + 13€ to apply the tax (?!?!?).
So oculus shipped to me at 450€ all inclusive it's not bad. Can i ask where you live? Just for curiosity.
I'm also thinking to buy the base of the virpil to mount over it my warthog stick and also buy mfg crooswind to upgrade my rudder but need to find from where they ship, so i can calculate the real price. In short, it's a mess...
