Since its official debut past year, the Oculus Rift headset has provided users the chance to experience a new level of immersion in games, film, and elsewhere, with the headset seeing a shakeup with a new price drop in effect to make the headset more accessible than ever before.
The headset is planned to be different from other VR headgear that is already available.
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.
Now, Oculus is trying to make virtual reality more affordable for the masses. It joins a product range that also includes the mobile Oculus Gear VR and the high-end Oculus Rift. According to Facebook's VP of VR, Hugo Barra, the standalone mobile headset feels "incredibly soft to wear", although we'll have to take him up on that when we get one in for review. Its price (199 dollars-Atlantic) has not yet been set for Europe. So, no headphones or earphones needed with Oculus Go.

This new device will be a rival for Samsung's Gear and Google's Daydream devices; how strong of a rival is unclear, as both competing products are priced lower than the Oculus Go, at $100.
But, what else does Oculus Go offer that its fully fleshed out sibling does not?
Speakers are built into the headset, for transporting the user straight into VR and making the headset easy to share with someone else. That naturally leads to more mobility and freedom while allowing users to soak into the content with all the liberty that they can dream of.
