You won't be able to wander about in the way that Oculus Rift supports, but you will be able to spin much in the same way you can with Gear VR. The runaway success of the "Pokémon Go" mobile game inspired the young CEO, as did likely the growing threat posed by rival Snapchat.
Last week Patently Apple posted a report about Samsung's new mixed reality Headset called the HMD Odyssey supporting Microsoft's mixed reality headset and today Facebook introduced their all-new VR headset called 'Oculus Go'. You got a glimpse of how we'll bring more freedom and accessibility to VR with the introduction of Oculus Go.
One of the benefits of an all-in-one unit like this is that the company has been able to drive down the price compared to the Oculus Rift with Oculus confirming Oculus Go will hit the market priced at only $199.
You can't say Mark Zuckerberg doesn't aim high. But it will start shipping to developers some time next year, the company said at its Oculus Connect 4 event today. The headset will be higher quality than the cheaper Samsung Gear VR, which is created to work with a smartphone. But sales of its Oculus headsets have been slower than many expected. Development kits will be sent out in November, but Oculus Go is said to release in early 2018. It will also ship with a controller that users can hold in one hand, to point, poke or otherwise interact with the environment around them. It lets you use your desktop apps within VR, too.
"The road ahead won't be easy, but virtual reality will change the way we see the world and will make all of our lives a whole lot better". It is also worth pointing out Oculus Go does come with its own controller.
