Oculus has made its standalone mobile virtual reality headset more widely available across UK stores. It has also been released in Canada and Europe.
Unlike the established Oculus Rift, also made by the Facebook-owned company, Oculus Go is a headset that does not require an external PC source. Nor does it require a separate smartphone to provide the screen and brains of the device.

The display refreshes at between 60Hz and 72Hz, depending on the software, and the whole device is driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 mobile VR system-on-chip. Battery life is claimed to last between 1.5 and 2 hours of gaming, 2 and 2.5 hours for video viewing.
Oculus claims that more that 1,000 games and experiences are available for the Go already.
