Zuckerberg aims to get a billion people into VR with new mobile headset and Rift price drop

Facebook CEO (and, thus, Oculus owner) Mark Zuckerberg has announced a new standalone VR headset, priced at $199 and due for release “early next year.” A “temporary” price drop for the Rift and Touch bundle to $399 is now permanent.

Tempted? Here are some of the best VR games on PC that you could be playing.

The news comes from the Oculus Connect 4 conference today, as reported by ArsTechnica. The new headset is named Oculus Go, and is intended to obviate two of the biggest obstacles to widespread VR adoption: price and hardware. At $199 and without any need for a high-end PC, Oculus Go will be one of the most affordable and user-friendly headsets on the market.
