Oculus' new standalone $199 VR headset now on pre-order at Amazon.com

Facebook's F8 conference is due later today and likely related to this, the headset has now gone on pre-order at Amazon.com for $199. However, the F8 conference opened up to developers earlier today, so we will hopefully get some news on that front today, or at some point over the next couple of days.

However, as of Tuesday morning, the $199 Oculus Go appeared to have already sold out as the Amazon listed it as now unavailable.

Mark Zuckerberg is expected to announce the Oculus Go availability in his keynote at F8 at 10 am PDT. For high-end VR, you have to turn to the Oculus Rift.
