$199 Oculus Go VR headset goes on sale today

The Oculus Go standalone head-mounted display (HMD) has launched today, available in 23 countries via Oculus.com with those in the USA also able to purchase the headset from Amazon, Newegg and Best Buy.

Oculus Go launch with several apps and games including an updated Oculus Rooms, originally released for the Gear VR, which features customizable environments, more life-like avatars, tabletop games from Hasbro, and the ability to watch full-length movies from the Oculus Store. The new headset, developed by Facebook-owned Oculus, works without a smartphone connection or a more expensive virtual reality set-up designed for gaming.

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. Amazon is taking pre-orders for the Oculus Go, but has not revealed a shipping date. 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. Sounds are delivered by speakers built in to the headset, rather than separate headphones, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor-powered LCD screen offers QHD 2,560 x 1,440 resolution.
