It’s now been over a year since the Oculus Go VR headset was released. At just $199 and fully standalone, the headset opened up a new category of affordable VR and freed mobile VR from the constraints of smartphones.
In our review, we called it “impressive and important piece of hardware”. Even one year on, there is no competitor to Oculus Go at anywhere close to the same price. This is partly due to Facebook’s partnership with Xiaomi, a company with extensive experience manufacturing high quality consumer electronics at low cost.
To celebrate this anniversary, the Oculus Store has discounts on Oculus Go apps & games. Here are some of the best currently on sale:
