3 dof robot arm estimate?

I’m looking to hire some people for a robot arm project and I was wondering what people think a ballpark estimate would be for something like this or if the project goals are over ambitious?

Basically I need a 3 dof robot arm, doesn’t need sub millimeter accuracy but needs a payload capacity of 10kg and to mimic the movement of an HTC Vive controller inside of unity or ue4.

A friend of mine who works in robotics told me to expect around $3000 for just the arm, any idea how complex/ costly the programming would be for a project like this and if that quote seems accurate? Thanks.
