Oculus Go VR Headset Sells Out in Hours

Oculus Go VR Headset Sells Out in Hours

However, the F8 conference opened up to developers earlier today, so we will hopefully get some news on that front today, or at some point over the next couple of days.

Facebook has launched the Oculus Go, a standalone virtual reality headset that works without being linked to a smartphone or a computer.

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.

A separate report from UploadVR this morning notes that F8 developer attendees are likely to receive Oculus Go headsets for free. As far as pricing goes, it will retail for $199 for the 32GB variant, while the 64GB model will be priced at $249.

However, as of Tuesday morning, the $199 Oculus Go appeared to have already sold out as the Amazon listed it as now unavailable. F8's official site now asks you to sign up to be emailed a link to the stream, but we're sure a public link will be made available as we get closer to kick off. The reveal could come as soon as Mark Zuckerberg's keynote at 10 a.m. The headset is, of course, more comparable to the Gear VR when it comes to actual gameplay (they share the same game library), but Oculus has managed to make a number of improvements that make the cheap headset feel deeply luxurious to those familiar with mobile VR offerings to date.

The price for the 64GB Oculus Go is not known yet. Designed with breathable fabrics, Oculus Go is comfortable and fully adjustable.

The Oculus Go display features a 2,560x1,440px resolution. The experience using the Oculus Go is like watching video on a 30-foot screen.
