Last year, Facebook announced that Oculus was working on a higher-fidelity experience that would let the Rift headset be untethered from the PC. As the name suggests, the device will run independently of a PC, phone, etc., and will be dependent entirely on its own hardware.
Oculus on Wednesday lopped $100 off the price of a package bundling Rift headset with touch controllers, citing successful discounts during a summer-long promotion.
"The strategy for Facebook is to make the onboarding to VR as easy and low-cost as possible", said Gartner analyst Brian Blau.
According to Gartner, some 16m VR headsets were shipped worldwide in 2016, a number that is tipped to reach 22m in 2017. What makes the Go special is the integrated spatial audio. Furthermore, Oculus will be selling Gear VR like controllers with the Oculus Go.

This isn't the first price drop by Oculus this year: The package was trimmed to $499 on March 1. Those figures include headsets for what is known as augmented reality. His visions carry weight, largely because Facebook now has more than 2 billion users and plays an influential role in how people communicate. Now Oculus has confirmed that this change is permanent. He further believed that this is the easiest way for them to get used to a device like VR headset. The latest prototype is sleeker and features fully tracked controllers to enable hand presence in standalone form factor.
Upgrades for Oculus Avatars was also introduced in the conference. You can already buy the Gear VR which is a similar, portable device, but you need a high-end Samsung device to operate the headset.
The overall experience is supposed to be familiar to the Gear VR too, allowing users to spin around but not move freely.
