Oculus launches standalone VR headset that doesn't require a PC or wires for $200
Today, at Facebook's F8 developer conference, the company announced that its cheap and capable Oculus Go virtual reality headset will be going on sale today. Oculus Go is available for purchase on Oculus's website and via retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg. There have been rumors that Facebook would release the Oculus Go at the F8. The Oculus Go minimizes friction and promotes a surprisingly capable baseline for bringing new consumers into VR for the first time.
It seems likely we'll hear more about availability at Facebook's F8 conference, which begins in San Jose, California today.
The headset, announced last October, starts at $199, and it functions like the Samsung Gear VR headset with numerous same apps. The stand-alone VR headset doesn't require a computer, or a smartphone, or any additional hardware. The Go, unlike the Rift or the Gear VR, doesn't need to be tethered to another device.
The Go can get up to two hours' worth of play from a single charge, Oculus said in a release, and it will take around three hours to fully recharge.
Battery Life: 1.5-2 hours for gaming, or 2-2.5 for video-watching.
The VR headset will have built-in spatial audio and also an integrated microphone. This is a standalone VR headset that works without a phone or PC. Starting at $199 Dollars for 32 GB of storage (or $249 USD for the 64 GB model), Oculus Go was designed with comfort in mind.
