The company has been under fire recently for possibly not considering users' privacy and security in its features. The need for additional equipment is one of the reasons virtual reality, or VR, has had limited appeal so far.

If you've been keeping up the VRFocus' coverage then you'll know that Oculus Go is fairly big news, with the company looking to offer a higher quality virtual reality (VR) experience than smartphone compatible headsets with a dedicated device that's not only affordable but also easy to use.

It has been a long time coming, but it looks like the Oculus Go will finally be available starting this week.

The price for the 64GB Oculus Go is not known yet. The headset is, of course, more comparable to the Gear VR when it comes to actual gameplay (they share the same game library), but Oculus has managed to make a number of improvements that make the cheap headset feel deeply luxurious to those familiar with mobile VR offerings to date. The reveal could come as soon as Mark Zuckerberg's keynote at 10 a.m. We can see an Oculus Rift package next to these boxes, though, and the Rift package is much larger. Designed with breathable fabrics, Oculus Go is comfortable and fully adjustable. The 3D visuals are combined with spatial audio for complete immersion.
