Today at the Oculus Connect event, Oculus VR (owned by Facebook) announced a new price drop for the Rift VR headset as well as another, cheaper way to get into VR.
The Rift headset is now available for $399 (including the headset, two sensors and Touch controllers, and a handful of games), and if you’re looking for a less-expensive VR option, the company also announced Oculus Go for $199.
Oculus Go is a standalone VR headset that doesn’t require a PC to run and which comes with a single palm controller that’s different than the Touch controller. More details on Oculus Go are coming in the future.
I’d be curious what the quality of VR experiences for the Go are going to be like versus the regular Rift, and if that’s a $200 gulf.
