Oculus Go is Oculus' standalone, $199 VR headset

The company's upcoming Oculus Go headset costs $199, which is less than all of the Windows Mixed Reality headsets that are launching next week. Mark Zuckerberg announced the news at this year's Oculus Connect conference, saying it's a way to reach his next goal for Oculus: getting one billion people in VR. Mobile VR headsets like the Gear VR are nice, but they don't offer the same immersion.

Zuckerberg and Barra also briefly talked about the Oculus Santa Cruz, which until now has only been known as a prototype the company was working on. While he didn't say when the headset is expected to launch, Oculus did note that the developer should be able to get their hands on devkits as early as November. In fact, it's the same field of view as the Oculus Rift. He said it's lightweight and "feels incredibly soft to wear". Gear VR and Oculus Go apps will be binary compatible, too, so that there'll be a healthy number of apps and other VR content available from the get-go. We'll be looking to see the latest on the company's standalone VR headset, which was revealed in prototype form past year, as well as new games and updates to the entire Oculus platform.
