Oculus Go Standalone VR-Headset Announced for £150

11 October 2017

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has officially revealed the company's upcoming standalone VR headset, the $199 Oculus Go. Facebook and Oculus haven't pinned down a name yet, so it's possible that this could be the true successor to the original Oculus Rift.

Zuckerberg described Oculus Go as a headset meant to fit into the "sweet spot" between mobile VR headsets - like Google Daydream, and Samsung's Gear VR - and high-end VR headsets like Facebook's own Oculus Rift, and HTC's Vive. The Go will offer an experience sitting between mobile VR and the high-end Oculus Rift, with a level of quality that's better than the Samsung Gear VR, while remaining totally wireless. There's no phone or PC required, and it's much more affordable when compared to existing VR headsets on the market. He even followed it with a bold goal proclamation of getting one billion people in VR. Additionally, the headset comes with built-in spatial audio and a good ol' fashioned 3.5mm headphone jack as well.

Oculus Go development kits will start shipping in November, before a mainstream release early in 2018.

In terms of games and applications, it sounds like most of the stuff that already works on Gear VR also works on Oculus Go. In other words, Santa Cruz is a separate, distinct product from Oculus Go.
