Oculus Go VR Headset Sells Out in Hours

  • Oculus Go Ships Today

Battery life is claimed to last between 1.5 and 2 hours of gaming, 2 and 2.5 hours for video viewing.

The headset went on sale on Amazon just after midnight on May 1, but by sunrise the product page reported that the Oculus Go was "currently unavailable".

In the United States, shoppers can also find the Oculus Go on sale at Amazon, Best Buy, and NewEgg, as well as at Best Buy retail stores today.

The Oculus Go fundamentally feels like a miniature Oculus Rift.

There have been various solutions in the past to get cheap VR into the hands of consumers. The $199 HMD has a 2560×1440 display, a Snapdragon SoC to power apps and games, it also has built in tracking and motion controller support. They've done this by building vents into the plastic headset strap arms on the sides of the headset; the audio isn't great, and they leak a lot of noise, but I'm so glad the company did this as it makes getting people set up in VR that much easier.

Armenian opposition leader becomes sole candidate for interim PM job
Student Laura Shahverdyan, 22, said the country was united in its demand that the Republican Party's rule must end. He is the only candidate for prime minister, but the chamber is controlled by the Sargsyan's ruling party.

There are definitely some quality sacrifices that had to be made in order to arrive at the $199 price point.

Compared to the similarly-minded Samsung Gear it's a far superior proposition, both in terms of design and the fact it's a standalone device that doesn't use your phone as a surrogate screen. There is also a companion app in the Play Store or app store (for iOS users) for downloading games and apps for the headset.

All right, so what's so special about this headset?

Everyone attending F8 was given a free Oculus Go headset to keep.
