How to Pre-Order the Oculus Go

Oculus Go Ships Today

The VR headset will have built-in spatial audio and also an integrated microphone. As of this writing, if you try to pre-order the device, Amazon's listing page says that it's unavailable. The Oculus Go headset has been officially launched today and it's now available for purchase in 23 countries across the globe. The retailer will let Facebook do that today at the F8 conference.

Starting today, you can now order the Oculus Go from the Oculus website.

The Oculus Go is a follow-up to the Oculus Rift, but unlike that device it does not require a connection to a computer.

The listing also says the device is only eligible for shipping to U.S. addresses.

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.

The Amazon post comes as the Oculus Go has already been spotted in the wild. As far as pricing goes, it will retail for $199 for the 32GB variant, while the 64GB model will be priced at $249. If you want, you can also order the Oculus Go from Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg.

Zuckerberg has billed the device as an attempt to make VR adopted by the masses, with the goal of getting one billion people using the technology, which transports people into simulated environments.

It's also wireless and features a "fast switch" LCD screen with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor.

The hardware is the company's first standalone headset and has launched with more than 1,000 apps, games and experiences. The picture shows both 32GB and 64GB headsets.
