Oculus Go VR expands to more stores in the UK and mainland Europe

Getting into VR can be costly, especially if you dont already have a gaming PC. A stand-alone solution like the Oculus Go can be more affordable and much more portable. Speaking of, you can now grab a Go VR headset from several retailers in the UK and Europe (it was previously only available through the official Oculus site).

In euros the price is 220 for the 32 GB model and 270 for the 64 GB one. In pounds it’s 200 and 250 respectively. Check out a few of the retailers that offer the headset.

The Oculus Go is powered by the Snapdragon 821 chipset, which renders graphics to an LCD panel with 2,560 x 1,440 px resolution. Refresh rate starts at 60 Hz but can go up to 72 Hz if the game/app supports it.

The headset comes with a motion controller and integrated spacial audio speakers (it has a 3.5 mm jack if you prefer headphones). Inserts with prescription lenses can be bought separately.
