Oculus Go Standalone Headset Now Available For $199

Oculus Go Ships Today

Oculus says that battery life should be up to 2.5 hours of streaming media and video.

The more VR headsets I've tried, the more I've become accustomed to their annoyances.

The Oculus Go is a follow-up to the Oculus Rift, but unlike that device it does not require a connection to a computer.

Oculus claims that more that 1,000 games and experiences are available for the Go from the off.

There have been various solutions in the past to get cheap VR into the hands of consumers.

You get all the technology needed to play VR experiences and games in the headset itself, plus a wireless controller. Its velcro headbands are extremely easy to adjust, and at 467g the Go is lightweight enough that you don't feel your head constantly nodding forward while using the thing.

There are definitely some quality sacrifices that had to be made in order to arrive at the $199 price point. F8's official site now asks you to sign up to be emailed a link to the stream, but we're sure a public link will be made available as we get closer to kick off.

Overall though, the headset is far more high-quality than any other on-the-market standalone headset I've tried to date, costing hundreds of dollars less than most of that competition as well. Reddit users were posting photos of locked cabinets full of Oculus Go hardware, and signs at the F8 registration desk stating that attendees would be able to pick up their complementary Oculus Go hardware at 2 P.M. on May 2. This is a testament to Facebook's willingness to make tight or nonexistent profit margins in order to ensure it remains the leader of the VR market - it also speaks to the fact that Oculus understands mobile VR software better than any competitor, by a country mile.
