    Missed opportunity to shape it like a book. That battery won't last long once all the mining ads take over!

    People are interested in this? What's the big difference over something like Samsung VR or Google daydream that uses your phone anyway? Wake me up when a PC handset (without facebook) is affordable...

    Re: Facebook releases the Oculus Go standalone VR headset

    Even though it is standalone, can it still be tethered to a PC for gaming? If it can then I might be interested in this as something to use for a while until the mainstream PC headsets have evolved a bit and become more affordable, I would see this a PSVR alternative for PC users (with a few extras) at that price, but if it can't tether to devices, then it isn't for me.

    It's for VR-Dating or something, says Facebook...

    With this and their dating app (as well as an app purely to find you more apps to download), they aim to bring the world together and... err... doing... whatever people do when they umm... get together.....?

    Ja, OK.... 2hr battery life - I spend more time than that on the more regular kind of 'dating' sites!!
