Get yours for $199.
Facebook-owned Oculus has officially announced that the standalone Oculus Go headset is now available globally for $199 as part of the Facebook F8 Developer’s Conference.
Current VR head at Oculus Hugo Barra gave a keynote detailing the new features of the all-in-one headset, along with more than 1,000 apps and games that are immediately available on launch day.
The Oculus Go’s standalone feature means it no longer needs to be connected to a PC like the original Oculus Go. Its more mobile design also means you can literally take it anywhere, set it up and start using it in a few minutes.
Additionally, Oculus is introducing a new shared VR experience including a way for you to attend live social events without actually being there. There’s also Oculus Rooms that lets you play with friends online for board games or watch movies together and Oculus TV that gives you a large virtual big screen TV where you can watch love broadcasts and on-demand content.
Facebook did say that it is pushing for more technologies that would enhance VR and AR content in the future.
In the meantime, we’ll be busy pre-ordering our Oculus Go headset.
