Oculus Go Standalone VR Headset Announced


Oculus is one of the best VR headset manufacturers in the market and they are up with some pretty big announcements today.

First of all, the Oculus Rift receives a price cut to $400 including the controllers. Also, a standalone Oculus Go VR headset has been announced.


The Oculus Go VR does not require a phone for functioning but is not capable of streaming games from PC as well. Instead, the Oculus Go will run games within the device without being paired with any other device.

There are already games that are ready to be played on the Oculus Go and most of the games are the ones specifically designed for the Samsung Gear VR.

For interaction and control of games, the Oculus Go also comes bundled with a single motion controller that features a trigger and a touch-input area.

There is no official confirmation on the chipset inside the Oculus Go but is expected to be the Snapdragon 821. The screen on the Oculus Go is an LCD panel with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels for the single panel and when the two display panels are used, the resolution offered is 2160×1200 pixels.

The Oculus Go will go on sale starting Q1 2018 with a price tag of $200.
