Pre-orders of the $200 Oculus Govirtual 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. As far as pricing goes, it will retail for $199 for the 32GB variant, while the 64GB model will be priced at $249.
In an age when leaks spoil every surprise, Facebook came very close to surprising everyone with the launch of its highly anticipated Oculus Go stand-alone VR headset. The Oculus website says the device will ship between May 1 and 11, while Amazon has one-day delivery turnaround.
There have been various solutions in the past to get cheap VR into the hands of consumers. You will also get a touch controller bundled with the headset, which is powered by a AA battery. They've done this by building vents into the plastic headset strap arms on the sides of the headset; the audio isn't great, and they leak a lot of noise, but I'm so glad the company did this as it makes getting people set up in VR that much easier. Reddit users were posting photos of locked cabinets full of Oculus Go hardware, and signs at the F8 registration desk stating that attendees would be able to pick up their complementary Oculus Go hardware at 2 P.M. on May 2.
That immediate availability only applies to the USA for the time being. Announced at Facebook's F8 developer conference (and given out to everyone at the keynote), the Oculus Go will hit store shelves today.
That architecture has helped Facebook and Oculus keep the price down, of course, but it has also forced some compromises.
