$199 Oculus Go VR headset goes on sale today

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

In order to solve this problem, the Oculus Go was announced late a year ago and does not require a PC or smartphone, and instead functions as a stand-alone unit.

As well as the standard 32GB version for $199, there is also a 64GB model available for $249.

Battery Life: 1.5-2 hours for gaming, or 2-2.5 for video-watching. At its F8 developers conference today (May 1), the company released a new VR headset called the Oculus Go.

The Oculus Go fundamentally feels like a miniature Oculus Rift. More than 100 Go-exclusive games and apps will also be available to download through the headset's digital storefront.

Washington Capitals vs. Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-1
Somehow, the replay center couldn't act on that look, and it certainly cost the Penguins as the Capitals drew even in the series. Byfuglien scored between Rinne's pads on a four-on-four at 12:47, and Scheifele made it 2-1 with a power-play goal at 13:16.

'Enemy' rockets hit Hama, Aleppo army positions

There have been various solutions in the past to get cheap VR into the hands of consumers. The device doesn't have the ability to track the wearer if they start walking around or even sit or stand up (what's referred to as "inside-out tracking"), meaning they'll have to remain seated to play games or watch content, unlike with the Oculus Rift.

Another item that I love about this headset is the way they've built in-headset stereo audio into the design while still keeping the headset straps fabric and portable.

Zuckerberg has billed the device as an attempt to make VR adopted by the masses, with the goal of getting one billion people using the technology, which transports people into simulated environments. The stand-alone VR headset doesn't require a computer, or a smartphone, or any additional hardware. In the course of showing it to a friend, that was enough time for him to decide that maybe he didn't want to try that app that much after all. The app sent out smartphone notifications about the Oculus Go sale begin to the users who have subscribed to the Oculus Go tracker. All of the necessary hardware is in the headset itself.
