Oculus Go VR Headset Sells Out in Hours

F8 Attendees Get Free Oculus Go on May 2

F8 Attendees Get Free Oculus Go on May 2

As for how much you'll pay for the chance to jump into VR with no wire, it depends on what Oculus Go storage option you choose.

A pre-release page for the headsets popped up on Amazon and a Reddit user spotted a display case of Oculus Go units at a Best Buy at a Fayetteville, Arkansas Best Buy. As far as pricing goes, it will retail for $199 for the 32GB variant, while the 64GB model will be priced at $249.

Oculus hasn't announced the shipping date for the Go standalone VR headset.

You get all the technology needed to play VR experiences and games in the headset itself, plus a wireless controller. Oculus says that battery life should be up to 2.5 hours of streaming media and video.

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

Oculus claims that more that 1,000 games and experiences are available for the Go from the off.

The Oculus Go, which the company was billed by Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg as "the easiest way to get into VR", was launched at Facebook's F8 in San Jose, California. But it stands out because it does not require a separate computer - a smartphone locked into the device or a PC to tether to - to operate. You can still attach some headphones to the Go via a 3.5mm jack, but in most of my early testing I've been fine just using the integrated audio. This is a testament to Facebook's willingness to make tight or nonexistent profit margins in order to ensure it remains the leader of the VR market - it also speaks to the fact that Oculus understands mobile VR software better than any competitor, by a country mile.
