  • Oculus Rift is Getting a Permanent Price Cut

Last year, Facebook announced that Oculus was working on a higher-fidelity experience that would let the Rift headset be untethered from the PC. The display is a fast-switch LCD screen with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels, and it comes with integrated headphones.

Facebook is launching a new virtual reality (VR) headset which needs no separate PC to operate - but VR is lacking crucial components to make it a mainstream success.

The new product is meant to be more practical and accessible than Facebook's current flagship VR device, Oculus Rift, which requires a paired computer system to work - limiting its use to the home and to those who can afford a PC with the specifications needed to run virtual reality applications.

"The Oculus Go has potential to be a huge driver of growth", if people like the titles and apps on it, Stephanie Llamas, vice president of research at Super Data, said in an email.

The Rift headset is only available bundled with the controllers and can be purchased from the Oculus website.

Oculus Go is intended for those that do not have a Samsung smartphone. The auto company is using Oculus for Business to build VR showrooms to allow customers to walk around the place and configure the vehicle themselves before they make the purchasing decision.
