I think I heard Carmack say that there would be a higher definition version as well, but that it would be (understandably) more expensive.

Yeah, it would be.
It seems they are trying to stay under 1000$.

From a post from PalmerTech (page 41 in the thread on MTBS):

"I hate to succumb to hype, but in an attempt to keep people from being to upset about the delay: Imagine an HMD with a massive field of view and more pixels than 1080p per eye, wireless PC link, built in absolute head and hand/weapon/wand positioning, and native integration with some (if not all) of the major game engines, all for less than $1,000 USD. That can happen in 2013!"

BTW, FYI there exists a 1080p HMD by Silicon Micro Display now too, for $800. A review here.

It's a narrow-FOV (just 45° diagonal) virtual-wall thing though. There are two displays, so the price may be indicative also for the final version of the Oculus Rift, should it sport 1080p resolution for each eye.
