Oculus Announces Oculus Go: Untethered VR For $199 United States dollars

It certainly makes the sheer cost of investing in high-end VR a lot more palatable to the wallet, but Facebook has yet to confirm whether this price slash will make to either the United Kingdom or Australian markets. The Oculus Rift price is also coming down to $399, but you still need a high-end video card in addition to that.

ARKTIKA.1's current price is $29.99 United States dollars (or your regional equivalent) and is available now for the Oculus Rift. But the Go is not just a less expensive version of the Rift.

Barra announced that the company had developed custom lenses for the headset, which allow for a wide field of view.

Mr Zuckerberg wants to tackle both of them with the Oculus Go. That seems to indicate the Oculus Go is running on some flavor of Android, but that's unconfirmed right now.

The real kicker in the Go is it will act as a standalone unit.

Facebook didn't provide any details on how the Oculus Go will work, but said it will include built-in headphones for audio and have a LCD display. So today it launched "Oculus For Business" which lets companies buy Oculus bundles in bulk with enterprise-grade warranties, get a full VR commercial license, and access dedicated customer support. That might not be enough to win over users.

This kind of content isn't much different from what similar headsets offer already, and those haven't exactly taken the world by storm. The Rift and Samsung's Gear VR-capable phones use OLED screens because of the faster refresh rate.

But, without having tried Go as it isn't on display at Connect, the new headset does have the feeling of a stopgap measure, and a late one at that. The company will be shipping first headsets to developers in November, and then sell it to consumers early next year. The headset was then known under the code name "Santa Cruz".

Oculus Go was announced with simply an image, price point, and vague release window shown behind Zuckerberg's head on the stage.

"We are setting a goal", he said.

Earlier this week, Mark Zuckerberg caught some flak for leading us on a virtual reality (VR) tour of the destruction Maria wrought on Puerto Rico.
