Oculus Go review: $199 standalone VR headset

Oculus Go doesn’t need a phone and it’s not much different from Gear VR, but it works well: we test it across both coasts.

Oculus Go has arrived: Facebook’s portable VR system breaks the $200 barrier: https://www.cnet.com/news/oculus-go-available-now-price-breaks-200-dollar-barrier/

    Oh cool a VR home where you can actually have people over virtually and do things together. Take notes Microsoft, your Windows Mixed Reality cliffhouse is sorely lacking social interactivity.

    i have a wmr headset and i also will be getting this device aswell because i have a pc and not a laptop and i want to watch movies in vr but its just so uncomfortable in my chair so with this ill be able to lay back in bed or on my couch and maybe ill get one for a freind and we can watch movies togther in vr and the display sounds way better then the wmr headset i have and also. for the people being negative on it u just have to look at what its good for and judge it for that which i think what its good for is awesome for the price

    VR headsets won't sell until Apple makes their own VR headset. However, look at the HomePod, it's a $350 paperweight. LMFAO!

    Is it worth getting over a Daydream 2? I know it is self-contained but the Daydream uses a phone that lasts longer in VR mode, has USB-C, has Bluetooth audio out, and more storage, hmm idk. I would only hope that daydream interface can catch up to the Oculus software which is dominating at this point.

    Reminds me of the Nintendo Virtual Boy that came out 22 years ago… maybe in another 20 years, still not there yet.

    Exactly like my Gear VR experience. If the inbuilt screen makes it a little lighter that will be a good thing. Everyone should understand though that VR is a once week thing, play for an hour or so during free time at home, enjoy some great game content like End Space or Infection:VR Horror which will scare the pants off you! Then put it away for another week. It's not something for every day use. P. S. Make sure you have high speed WiFi for streaming use. Anything less than 40mb a second won't work well.

    So isn't this just like the gear vr you still need a phone that supports the oculus software to use it right?

    can you project the visual display onto a TV screen so other people in the room (without the headset) can see what you're seeing?

    Its a shame that we have to game just to hang out with friends. Theses people are stuck up selfish jackasss
