  • F8 2018 How to Watch Oculus Go Announcement Privacy Scandal and More

The Oculus Go is expected to be released around December 2018, and will be able to run existing applications which have been released for Samsung's Gear VR headset.

A separate report from UploadVR this morning notes that F8 developer attendees are likely to receive Oculus Go headsets for free. The base Oculus Go will cost $199, comes with 32GB of storage, and the higher version comes with 64GB storage and will sell for $249.

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.

Battery Life: 1.5-2 hours for gaming, or 2-2.5 for video-watching. That also means that all of the Gear VR's Oculus app and VR experience catalog will work with Oculus Go from day one. More than 100 Go-exclusive games and apps will also be available to download through the headset's digital storefront.

'Golden State Killer': East Bay man, murder victim's son, 'stunned' of arrest
Over the years, when news of the " Golden State Killer " would pop up, Dave said he closed himself off to it. In April 2016, she died unexpectedly in her sleep .

The company has long maintained that bringing your hands into VR is more important than getting your head there.

You get all the technology needed to play VR experiences and games in the headset itself, plus a wireless controller.

There are definitely some quality sacrifices that had to be made in order to arrive at the $199 price point. The stand-alone VR headset doesn't require a computer, or a smartphone, or any additional hardware. The headset offers mobile virtual reality without needing a phone or PC, and is going on sale starting today in 23 countries.

That immediate availability only applies to the U.S. for the time being.
