This one is basically not much more than a media player. If you want to play games in vr I suggest you save up the difference and buy a quest.

I am shocked that there is something better available for nearly three times the price...
I bought this on release day. If you've only ever experienced VR with Google Cardboard or a cheap VR headset then these are definitely worth trying. Don't be misled by elitists telling you you will only get a good VR experience by buying a Quest because that's not true. Also these retain a lot of their value so you'll easily get back £100 on the resell.

Lets face it, it's obvious that's why 90% of men buy them. But we hide it under the 'oh look, you can play games on it' lol

64GB model down to £189.99 too.
The 64gb is down to £189.99 from £249.99 if it helps anyone, looks a good price.
I just checked and they are normal prices still

Unfortunately, they haven't had any stock of this or the quest in any store within 100 miles of me since before Christmas. So no home delivery either. Heat added for those who stay just over 100 miles away though

Very hot! Give VR a go for this price.
Definately £139 once added to basket

It's a very good media player though..
I suggest not buying it, VR is utter crap without feeling like you're in it with the motion controls.
Amazon have price matched, so more chance of finding it in stock for some people (like me).
You should add Amazon to the title op, rather than someone reading this and posting it as a separate deal? (talk about invitation lol)

I bought, and later sold one of these. I just don’t agree with you. I found everything about it to be a mediocre experience. Visual quality is so unbelievably low that video is unwatchable - particularly services such as YouTube. High resolution VR content loses frames on the Go, so it’s no good either. Games are a bit better, but there aren’t many that hold attention for any period of time. Personally I don’t think this is worth buying at £139.99. Half that again and it’s a fair purchase for the novelty value.
If your looking for that gaming experience get the Quest this isn't much better than a £10 VR headset that you bung your phone in read the comparisons
Hi,I have a Oculus rift ,it was amazing when I first got it, but the novelty wears off.vr got a long way to go before it really keeps you coming back for more.
This unit need to be below this price point,more like £70.00-100

I was thinking of getting a Quest, mostly for playing with the PC with the Link when it's available, but then occasionally standalone too. But there only seem to be a couple of sites than even sell it, which doesn't seem encouraging seeing as it's been out for a while now. Is VR dying a slow death?

I think the point is that this is one of those technologies where you should really buy properly, otherwise you will get an experience which is simply not enjoyable and it will put you off the whole VR experience.

Lots of other similar technologies... e.g. drones. Buy a £50 one and it seems like a complete waste of time and you wonder what the hype is about, then you buy a £200 one and you are amazed at how good they are.

A Quest is not 'better', it's in a completely different league.

Essentially, Oculus thought, I know. Let's release a £20 iPod touch, put it in some goggles and brand it VR. Then all the Mums and Dads who don't have a clue, see VR in the title and buy it for their kid who wanted one for Christmas. Only to be very, very disappointed.

1/10 would not buy.

I heard that the go will be discontinued soon hence the price reduction!

Criticise the Go all you like - suggesting someone goes for something for £400 over something for £140 is still massively irrelevant
I saw on YouTube windows mixed reality is the cheapest wayy to get into vr? Lenovo and HP etc?

This times 100. The Go might be cheap but that's because Oculus has effectively dropped support for it entirely in favour of the Quest headset. I realise it's 2-3 times the price of this so not a fair comparison but I honestly believe the Oculus Go simply isn't worth buying anymore regardless of the pricing.

If you want to experience VR save up the extra and buy a Quest. There's a reason the Oculus Quest headset is sold out everywhere and that's because it's awesome!

Bingo!!......but yeah this is great, your own imax cinema were you can watch any movie or TV show you own, and it also plays 3d movies perfectly, so your own 3d imax as well, and for this price it is a steal, i paid £199 for mine and it was worth every penny and still gets used today, you have not really watched any 1970sUK TV cop shows like the Sweeny or Minder until you watch them in your own imax cinema. lol
This is brilliant, brill deal

Then I suggest spending the £140 on something else, as it will only end in tears if people buying it, are not fully aware of the capabilities of the device. If they are aware, and still buy it, then they clearly have enough disposable income anyway to spend that amount on a glorified video player.
I had one of these for a few months but sold it.

In my head I imagined I'd be using it for all kinds of things like watching movies and playing games. But I ended up getting tired of how overheated and slow it got even with the simplest of apps, and it had limited battery life. Not to mention the weight of the thing on your head was too much after a while.

My partner and my mum both thought this was rubbish, and they have no knowledge of VR or gaming at all.

Even the likes of the Quest/Vive/Index do not yet have a high enough resolution and frame rate to be truly enjoyable for the average user. That's why lots of people tire even of those after the novelty factor wears off. So the Go has no chance.
I got one for 150 a couple of months ago, it’s great for the price. Don’t listen to those saying it’s no better than the 10quid headsets you put a phone on, it’s a lot better than those. Yes the more expensive vr headsets are better but this is a good entry point or step up if interested in VR.

It's basically out-of-stock due to demand. Oculus are quoting 18th Feb for existing orders delivered in the US. There's been a lot of hype about the quest going in to Christmas and in part due to the release of the link functionality.

I managed to pick one up for myself from 'Santa' recently, and it's pretty awesome. I've mainly used this standalone despite having the cables.

I've messed around with mobile phone adaptors where one is a viewer rather than a participant - the experience is rather dull in comparison.

If you view a Quest in the same way as you would a console, the price tag seems reasonable.

I went to a "VR experience" the other day. I thought they'd be running their own modified gear, but no, each room was just an HTC Vive and a mid-range PC. £40 for an hour of that. In that context, VR headset pricing is very reasonable!
If you can’t decide between the Quest and Go that means you can afford either one, therefore go for the Quest at £400+

But if you have a <£150 budget and want to try if VR is for you or not.. (3D TVs anyone?) then the Go will tick a lot of boxes without breaking the bank.

I got mine at 200 on promo this time last year, and I’d say it was worth it. It’s a bit of fun and if you don’t get on with it, it will be an appreciated regift or hand me down within the family.

I still remember the Tomorrow’s World series and how big n clunky VR was and the lame graphics.. I’ve owned the Sony eye headset many years ago too with plenty of trailing wires and discomfort, so maybe I’m biased or maybe I just appreciate how far the consumer VR tech has been developed, into a small enough size to be portable and comfortable and convenient to use.

I plan on buying the Quest when it comes down enough on promo sale but until then I’ve got the Go to scratch that VR itch.

Big Sporting year this year,hopefully the BBC does its VR thing which was Great during the World Cup In 2018..... The Go was great for that.

Have they announced anything for the Olympics or Euros ?

I have really enjoyed my time with The Go, I would never fork out for the Quest as I am not that into Games, but I still found some great 'simple' gaming experiences with this, (and some of those Horror games are freaky...)... Some of the simple games control wise still have amazing atmosphere and immersion, and I found myself playing and trying apps out for ages.

But for me it was mainly as a media player thing, Netflix and Amazon Prime have fantastic apps ( I haven't used it in a couple of months mind, don't know if any other major apps have been released)... And they do give you that Big Screen feel, especially with the excellent built in speakers. Big Screen Beta was great too, I watched some Great movies that folk were streaming in there (deffo avoid the NSFW stuff though).

But also, I tend to find that my eyes / head gets a bit tired after about an hour, using this, so I would often watch half a movie, take a break, then get back into it.

I had tried the phone in headset thing previuosly, but the Go is another level altogether, and I would recommend this 32gb model price wise (enough for quite a few apps storage,and the streaming of media)).

If not sure about this I would say you will get your money's worth at this price.

I agree.
Have to say these new Oculus devices are a great facebook pr stunt. Quality wise they offer mediocre resolution/experience at best. You really need a Rift and a high end GPU to even remotely enjoy VR, anything less than that and it becomes a gimmick, simple as that.

Don’t be ridiculous. You might as well say TV is a gimmick unless you own a 75” OLED.
