Oculus announces new standalone headset, 'venues' at Oculus Connect

Facebook is making access to VR cheaper with the Oculus Go

But, what else does Oculus Go offer that its fully fleshed out sibling does not? The last VR system wasn't a hit, and its sales reflected it. Analysts say that this might be the Facebook's last chance to launch a VR if the public doesn't appreciate it.

So, what's so special about Oculus Go?

Now that we know roughly when to expect the Oculus Go to become available in the United Kingdom, how much will it cost?

Apart from Oculus, Facebook is planning to ship to the developers the new higher-fidelity headset codenamed "Santa Cruz" and this will be done in the next 12 months.

How does that compare to the competition? It's actually really similar to the Gear VR because their apps are binary compatible and they share the same controller input set.

Facebook's goal with the Santa Cruz headset is to deliver a high-end VR experience without the need to plug it into a PC. Pre-orders are yet to open but we'll be sure to update this section with retailers as soon as it becomes available.

Oculus Go design: What does it look like? He said it's lightweight and "feels incredibly soft to wear".

It's been received positively so far but VR's battle for hearts and minds rumbles on - Facebook believes Oculus Go can help with that.

The orientation-tracked controller isn't discussed much in the developer post announcing the new device, but it sounds like it won't be coming with the Oculus Touch controllers, which is a real shame.

Stay tuned for my full Oculus Go review in the near future. The CEO of the company, Mark Zuckerberg held a conference of developers hosted by its division, Oculus VR. But how? Let's talk specifics. And then there are cheap devices, like the Google Daydream, which are powered by smartphones.

The report has now been confirmed to be true with the unveiling of the Oculus Go, which the company is describing as "the easiest way to jump into VR". The display is a fast-switch LCD screen with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels, and it comes with integrated headphones. Additionally, the Oculus Go has improved lenses that reduce glare. The audio drivers and speakers are built into the straps for better audio experience. However, there's also a 3.5mm headphone jack for private listening, or for when you're getting on your housemates' nerves.
