Zuckerberg unveils stand-alone Oculus Go VR headsetMark Zuckerberg reveals the Oculus Go, a new untethered wireless VR headset. It will cost $199 and ship in early 2018.
Now today there are two main categories of VR products. There's mobile, like Gear VR, which is affordable and you can take it with you, but it's not as powerful as a PC, and it doesn't have positional tracking, so you can't move through space. And then there's PC VR. Like the Rift. And this is the world-class virtual reality experience, but it's a little more expensive and it ties you to a fixed computer. If we're gonna get a billion people in virtual reality, we have to keep working on both affordability and quality. But we also have to find the sweet spot In the middle. That high quality affordable experience, that doesn't tether you to a PC, so today, I'm excited to announce the first product in this sweet spot. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] It's an all new standalone headset that doesn't require you to snap on a phone or attach a cable. We're calling it Oculus Go. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] And Oculus Go is the most accessible VR experience ever. It's an all in one headset, it's great for playing games, for watching movies, and for hanging out with friends. And the price is only $199. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] And its gonna ship early next year, early next year.
