'Oculus Go' Is a $200 Standalone Headset

'Oculus Go' Is a $200 Standalone Headset

We ask this because in the same breath, Oculus announced the Oculus Go, a new standalone headset that will be available early next year for the surprisingly low price of $199 (about £150, AU$255). Now, Oculus, the once household name that has since given up its massive lead to the likes of the HTC Vive and PSVR, thinks it can finally change things with a standalone headset called Oculus Go, and it looks extremely interesting.

Oculus is at its Connect 4 conference in San Jose, California, where it has announced a new VR headset.

One thing that might help solve that last bit is the Oculus Go's price.




Oculus has teamed up with Pixel Corps to release a dedicated Rift and Gear VR app for streaming the big show as if you were really there.

The headset is the latest step towards Facebook's ultimate goal of getting 1 billion people into virtual reality - a milestone Zuckerberg specifically called out on stage alongside the announcement of Oculus Go. This is the first headset with full "inside-out" tracking, Oculus says. Facebook VP of VR Hugo Barra even declares it "hands-down the easiest way for developers" to get in with VR. Other features include a "fast-switch LCD" display with WQHD 2560X1440 resolution and an integrated spatial audio experience. Today, we're learned the headsets are going to be in the developers' hands "next year", and will work with some new motion-tracked controllers.

However, the Oculus Go headset seems a little different from that headset.
