Desktop not essential: Facebook unveils standalone VR headset

But its power, as far as we know, is more on the level of a Gear VR.

Oculus Go: When is the release date? Meet The Facebook Virtual Reality World with Oculus Headset.

But when will the Oculus Go become available to the masses? Priced at $199, the social giant said its low price should make VR more accessible than ever before.

Oculus Go: How much will it cost in the UK?

Facebook owned Oculus will release a stand-alone VR headset name Oculus Go next year which will retail for $199, according to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The Oculus Rift first debuted in March of last year after years of anticipation for helping to bring virtual reality to the mass market, and originally launched at a $599 price point.

How does that compare to the competition?

"Oculus Go is a Facebook-made alternative for the (Samsung) Gear VR that will not require a recent Samsung phone to operate", Schachter said.

At the same time Oculus showed off positionally tracked controllers, which are created to work with the new standalone headset and allow for natural and unrestricted movement.

Oculus has been trying to find a "sweet spot" when it comes to the price and quality of a virtual reality headset.

The same set also runs at £399 for the United Kingdom and European Union markets, as well as making it a whole lot more affordable than competing offers like the HTC Vive, which still retails for about $600 as of this time.

Oculus Go design: What does it look like? It makes more sense for Oculus to draw from the Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR ecosystems, where motion tracking and hand controls are already standard. Oculus still wants a wide range of Rift-ready computers, Barra says, but it's "not focused right now on dramatically increasing the addressable base", he told us. Also, the Rift requires a high-powered PC in order to power the headset, and cables and wires that mean it are not handy enough for the users.

"It's such a new way of communicating that business services, such as Cisco's Spark, will add immersive computing capabilities as a way for business to get started in VR", he said. Developers can build using the Oculus Rift, and simply show off their efforts to others with the Oculus Go on the fly.
