Will Oculus Go hit 1 billion VR users with price cut?
Oculus Go the new VR headset was introduced by Mark Zuckerberg who hopes to have 1 Billion VR users soon. How soon? He didn’t say.
One thing is for sure, this puts a serious price cut into the new unit as opposed to the flagship Rift which was sold for $399.
The Oculus Go means exactly that, it doesn’t need a base system to operate and function such as a PC or a phone snapped into it. It’s self-contained, and will cost $199 and be available by “early next year,” Zuckerberg said.
Most people won’t have a chance to go into space, he said, but they can in VR. He also talked about doctors using VR ahead of heart surgery and teams holding meetings in virtual rooms.
