Oculus Go Launched at Just $199, Doesn’t Need a Phone or PC to Run

Oculus has launched a brand new virtual reality headset, the Oculus Go which surprisingly doesn’t rely on a smartphone or a PC to run.

Instead of keeping things pricier like the Oculus Rift, the company has launched a new product that conveniently sits in between the inexpensive, smartphone dependant Gear VR and the Rift. Named the Oculus Go, the product is expected to start shipping in the first half of 2018.

Priced at $199, the device takes a complete different route unlike its predecessor because it neither requires a smartphone or a powerful computer to run. The standalone VR sports a massive screen resolution of 2560×1440 with spatial built-in audio and comes bundled with a controller.

In order to simplify things for developers, the development kits will be distributed to them from November onwards so that there is plenty of content on the device when it launches in February or so.

In other news, the Oculus Rift has received as permanent price cut to $399 from its original $499 making it more affordable than before.
