Oculus Go first look: Facebook's everyday virtual reality experience

F8 2018 How to Watch Oculus Go Announcement Privacy Scandal and More

Oculus launches standalone VR headset that doesn't require a PC or wires for $200

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

The Oculus Go virtual reality headset is shipping today, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said at Facebook's F8 developer conference.

It's been rumored for awhile now that Facebook would release Oculus Go as part of F8 this year, and the Oculus Go website lists an arrival date of "early 2018".

At this point in time, there is no word on United Kingdom availability of the Oculus Go.

The idea here really is that you should be able to don the Go and get cracking with your VR pursuits as soon as humanly possible.

The stand-alone VR headset doesn't require a computer, or a smartphone, or any additional hardware.

The display does a fine job, but is nothing to write home about.

Pre-orders of the $200 Oculus Go virtual reality headset were snapped up by eager buyers in the middle of last night, resulting in the device selling out in a matter of hours, according to a Digital Trends report.

That architecture has helped Facebook and Oculus keep the price down, of course, but it has also forced some compromises.
