Zuckerberg announces $199 Oculus Go as "sweet spot" standalone headset

Unveiled today at Oculus Connect 4, the company's annual developer conference, Oculus Go promises the pricing we're used to from phone-based VR headsets, but the quality and performance of a PC-powered system. "And we need to make sure that VR is accessible to everyone". Mobile VR headsets like the Gear VR are nice, but they don't offer the same immersion. There are expensive, best-in-class, desktop-based solutions like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift that are stunning, but require lots of wires and an expensive computer.

Zuckerberg and Barra also briefly talked about the Oculus Santa Cruz, which until now has only been known as a prototype the company was working on. The headset's also only $199 and shipping early next year. Additionally, the headset comes with built-in spatial audio and a good ol' fashioned 3.5mm headphone jack as well. It appears that the mobile headset will be a similar experience to the Gear VR, allowing users to spin around but not move freely. He said it's lightweight and "feels incredibly soft to wear". It will be cross-compatible with all Gear VR titles.
