European retailer Media Markt has quasi-officially let the cat out of the bag. The Oculus Touch hand controllers might appear in stores on November 21, carrying a price tag of 199€. It's not far-fetched to imagine the US will see these controllers sooner—perhaps for $199—as so often happens with consumer hardware.
Media Markt's website already has a page up for the controllers. Until recently, that page contained information on pricing and expected delivery date. We managed to confirm the info thanks to our good friend Google Cache, and proceeded to grab the screenshot you see above.
This information should be welcome almost-news to Rift owners. Ever since the release of both the Rift and the Vive, reviewers have almost universally noted that the Vive VR experience is superior, thanks to its hand controllers and room-scale gaming capabilities. The fact that Oculus was forced to delay the Touch release for the second half of this year struck a very out-of-tune chord with gamers, too. We look forward to greater parity between the two biggest VR headsets soon.
