The Oculus Go Standalone VR Headset Goes On Sale for $199

Alongside the launch of the Oculus Go headset today, Oculus announced that it is working on a new element of its in-headset experience that will appeal to users interested in binging TV inside VR.

The webpage, which went live at midnight, gives users the option to pre-order one of Facebook's first standalone VR headsets.

The product page also states that Amazon doesn't know "when or if this item will be back in stock". Amazon started to take pre-orders for the $199 Oculus Go stand-alone VR headset at around 8pm ET, according to online inventory tracking app The Tracker.

The Oculus Go, which the company was billed by Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg as "the easiest way to get into VR", was launched at Facebook's F8 in San Jose, California. Barra has reappeared again this time in a new unboxing video for Oculus Go.

The company has released plenty of details today during the Facebook Developers Conference, with Facebook VP of VR Hugo Barra taking to the stage as part of the keynote address. If you want, you can also order the Oculus Go from Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg.

The Amazon post comes as the Oculus Go has already been spotted in the wild.

Several users noted that the 64gb would likely cost more than the $199 32gb version.

The release date appeared to be a placeholder still, as it was being listed as December 31, 2018.
