Engadget Review

The Oculus Go is the virtual reality headset we’ve been waiting for -- not because it’s incredibly powerful, but because it’s inexpensive and easy to use. You won’t need to give up your phone or have a powerful computer to get this up and running. It’s still an investment at $200, but it has the best shot at getting average consumers into VR.
