In an age when leaks spoil every surprise, Facebook came very close to surprising everyone with the launch of its highly anticipated Oculus Go stand-alone VR headset. Nor does it require a separate smartphone to provide the screen and brains of the device.
With a starting price of $199 United States dollars, the Oculus Go sits firmly between Gear VR and Oculus Rift, offering around two hours of gameplay on a single charge, and thanks to compatibility with the Gear VR platform there are plenty of apps and videogames to play straight away.
The Go can get up to two hours' worth of play from a single charge, Oculus said in a release, and it will take around three hours to fully recharge.
We also finally have eyes on the full hardware specs, which only make it more clear that the Oculus Go is the best deal in VR. The retailer will let Facebook do that today at the F8 conference. The Go can follow the movements of the wearer's head, and comes with a small handheld controller and trackpad.

The Go includes its own for-sale VR video library and access to Oculus TV, a new platform that allows users to access TV apps such as CBS All Access.
It's not clear how numerous fully immersive Oculus Rift games will be playable on the Go, which runs on a processor meant for mobile phones (the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821), rather than the powerful processors and graphics cards required to use the Rift.
The VR headset will have built-in spatial audio and also an integrated microphone.
Oculus Go launch with several apps and games including an updated Oculus Rooms, originally released for the Gear VR, which features customizable environments, more life-like avatars, tabletop games from Hasbro, and the ability to watch full-length movies from the Oculus Store. The standalone VR headset has a starting price of $199 for the 32GB version and $249 for the 64GB version.
