Facebook eyes VR accessibility as it launches Oculus Go for $199

In the USA, shoppers can also find the Oculus Go on sale at Amazon, Best Buy, and NewEgg, as well as at Best Buy retail stores today. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that the Oculus Go headset is the "easiest way to get into VR". Starting at $199 Dollars for 32 GB of storage (or $249 USD for the 64 GB model), Oculus Go was designed with comfort in mind.

Evidence is piling up that Facebook-owned Oculus is gearing up to launch its low-priced, standalone virtual reality headset Oculus Go, possibly as soon as later today.

We also finally have eyes on the full hardware specs, which only make it more clear that the Oculus Go is the best deal in VR.

Additional global retailers will have the Oculus Go, which doesn't require a PC or inserted smartphone to operate, on sale soon.

White House tree planted by Trump, Macron vanishes
President Emmanuel Macron tweeted about the significance of his gift as he and President Trump "planted" the tree. The statement was released after Macron called Putin to inform him of his talks with Trump in the United States .

Oculus Go will be cross-compatible with more than 1,000 Gear VR apps, so early adopters will have plenty of options on the Oculus Store.

Pre-orders of the $200 Oculus Go virtual reality headset were snapped up by eager buyers in the middle of last night, resulting in the device selling out in a matter of hours, according to a Digital Trends report.

The company has long maintained that bringing your hands into VR is more important than getting your head there. It also has a 3-button controller (powered by AA batteries) with a touch surface for navigation and movement.

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