Oculus Rift now available for just $399 in USA

Mr. Zuckerberg promised the Oculus Go will be "the most accessible VR experience ever", and help realize his new goal of having 1 billion people dwelling in virtual reality at some point in the future. And it has a higher resolution screen than the rift – 2,560 x 1,440px (single panel) vs. 2,160 x 1,200px (split between two panels).

Untethered VR is now one step closer as Facebook has just announced the Oculus Go. While it looks like the company has used an LCD panels with a faster refresh rate, something that is of utmost importance when it comes to VR experience, we're not sure if it matches or surpasses the 90Hz displays used on the Rift.

If you're looking to buy the headset itself, the best bet will doubtless be some of the various bundles, which tend to include the headset, the PlayStation Camera (which you need to run the headset), and a game or two. At its annual developer conference, Mark Zuckerberg hit the stage to unveil the Oculus Go.

The company is developing software known as Facebook Spaces that allows friends to meet in virtual rooms, and it said it will soon integrate live video. Oculus Go is the name of the headset, and will cost just $199 per purchase.

Oculus is also included integrated spatial audio with the drivers built directly into the headset, removing the need to use headphones if preferred, although Oculus has also added a 3.5 mm jack for separate headphones to be connected if desired. The company says the Go is "binary-compatible" with apps for the Gear VR.

Dust to Dust II: How Valve rebuilt a classic Counter-Strike map
At the time of writing, Valve has not specified a time-frame, but expectations are it will arrive in the next few weeks. When Dust II returns to competitive play, another map will be removed so that the map updating cycle can continue.

The PC-only Oculus Rift was the first of the new wave of headsets but has been held back by a hefty price tag of £599. There is, however, no release date for the Santa Cruz motion controllers.

Eye Tribe also mastered a technology that could let Virtual Reality systems save computational power by creating flawless graphics only at the area we are looking. The company also showcased wireless controllers, which are simply named Project Santa Cruz Controllers as of now. Oculus Dash is Rift's new interface that has been built from the ground up for Touch.

Thor will be the latest in the cast of playable characters for Marvel Powers United VR, launching for Rift in 2018.

VR arguably remains a niche area of the technology world, despite the growing number of VR headsets available and the likes of Google's Cardboard goggles offering a very affordable if basic gateway into VR. The Oculus Rift, on the other hand, would cost you almost $500 and needs a powerful PC.

The company is also promising to make improvements to avatars themselves.
