Two images showing a seemingly consumer-ready box containing Oculus Go, the company’s upcoming standalone VR headset, found its way to Reddit and Twitter recently, possibly indicating that launch is right around the corner.
As first reported by TechRadar, the images appear to indicate that developers are now receiving the next big wave of dev kits. The first wave of Oculus Go dev kits cropped up at the end of November last year. Interesting to note: nowhere on the box do you see mention of ‘dev kit’, lending credence to the idea that this is the box you’ll see on store shelves soon.
The box art advertises a number of apps including Netflix, Facebook, Hulu, Fox Sports VR, The New York Times, and Discovery VR. Games and experiences include: Anshar 2, Ultrawings, RUSH, Ocean Rift, Jurassic World and The Body VR.
The box purports to launch with “1000 + apps, games, and movies,” a claim that can be made thanks to the fact that Oculus Go and Gear VR will essentially share the same content store, which has greatly matured since the consumer launch of Gear VR in November 2015.
The Oculus Go pictured above is apparently the 32 GB model, which we know is one of the two choices available. As seen in FCC filings, there will also be a 64 GB version.
Oculus Go is still officially slated to launch “early 2018” starting at $200.
