Oculus Go Is Up For Pre-order At Amazon

Oculus Go Is Up For Pre-order At Amazon

Oculus has made its standalone mobile virtual reality headset available.

The Oculus Go itself is now available for order at Amazon, Best Buy, and a variety of retailers for just $200 for the 32GB version, and $250 for the 64GB version.

Unlike other VR headsets, Facebook says the Oculus Go is a "true standalone" wearable, in that it doesn't require any help from a PC or smartphone. It's a two-day event with more than 5,000 developers in attendance, and we suspect Facebook will reveal more about the Oculus Go as the day goes on. 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. The conference follows weeks of intense scrutiny on the company after Zuckerberg's appearance before the US Congress to explain Facebook's role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which continues to unfold.

It's unclear when the Oculus Go is expected to ship, but the Amazon page includes a placeholder release date of December 31, 2018.

Battery Life: 1.5-2 hours for gaming, or 2-2.5 for video-watching. The app sent out smartphone notifications about the Oculus Go sale begin to the users who have subscribed to the Oculus Go tracker. The Go, unlike the Rift or the Gear VR, doesn't need to be tethered to another device.

The Oculus Go has a 2560 x 1440 LCD screen, a Snapdragon 821 processor, and integrated spatial audio. Oculus said there would be support for "certain games", but only mentioned one, Catan VR. Starting at $199 Dollars for 32 GB of storage (or $249 USD for the 64 GB model), Oculus Go was designed with comfort in mind. At least, until he gets nauseous.
