    No way! I heard that palmer lucky had put it in the $200 to $400 range. The best I would pay for the Oculus is $250. I still need to upgrade my gpu and that’s 400 on it’s own. I’ll wait till march or april to see if the price has come down. Maybe even wait for cyber monday or black friday deals.
