$199 Oculus Go is Up for Pre-order at Amazon

Amazon takes pre-orders or $199 Oculus Go ahead of F8.

The Oculus Go stand-alone virtual reality headset from Facebook is available for pre-order now at amazon.com. Amazon started to take pre-orders for the $199 Oculus Go stand-alone VR headset at around 8pm ET on April 30, according to online inventory tracking app The Tracker. The app sent out smartphone notifications about the Oculus Go sales begin to the users who have subscribed to the Oculus Go tracker.

The pre-order begins for the Oculus Go stand-alone VR headset just hours ahead of the Facebook F8 2018 developer conference kicking off May 1 in San Jose.

10:45 am ET: Amazon sells now both Oculus Go models starting at $199.

10:30 am ET: The Oculus Go 64GB VR headset is on sale on amazon.com for $249.

9 am ET: Amazon halts pre-orders for Oculus Go. We expect Facebook contacted them. The Oculus Go will ship today and Amazon is likely starting to sell it directly after Zuckerberg announces the release in his F8 keynote at 10 am PDT.

There have been rumors that Facebook would release the Oculus Go at the F8. Amazon is taking pre-orders for the Oculus Go, but has not revealed a shipping date. The retailer will let Facebook do that today at the F8 conference.

The $199 Oculus Go is only half as expensive the Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream, to be released on May 5. The Mirage Solo is much more expensive with a $399 price-tag. Facebook's Oculus has priced the new headset quite aggressively, making it mass-market ready. I'm definitely picking one up. It frees up my smartphone and avoids the hassle of loading my HMD with it each time I want to use VR. Because of the very likely high demand, the Oculus Go is prone to sell out at launch.

Designed with breathable fabrics, Oculus Go is comfortable and fully adjustable. It can also be used with glasses. The 3D visuals are combined with spatial audio for complete immersion. The Oculus Go runs on a Snapdragon 821 processor and features a 2560x1440px resolution. The audio output is integrated into the headset.

We have compared the Oculus Go with the more expensive Lenovo Mirage Solo in this comparison. The guide makes it easy for you to decide which of the first stand-alone virtual reality headsets is the right choice for you. The major difference is in the more advanced tracking. With the Lenovo you can lean, duck and cover. The Oculus Go has a tracking comparable to the Samsung Gear VR headset. Still, for most VR content out there, this is all you need. Seel
