(BusinessInsider) Facebook still believes it can turn virtual reality into the next big thing. Facebook’s latest VR bet is its Oculus Go headset, which will start at $199 when it ships in early 2018. The Oculus Go is intended to fill the “sweet spot” between expensive, higher-end VR systems like the Oculus Rift and lightweight headsets like Samsung’s Gear VR, Zuckerberg said during his recent speech at the annual Oculus VR Conference.”We want to get a billion people in virtual reality,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg said onstage.
The goal is an exceptionally ambitious one even for Facebook, which already boasts 2 billion users. Only two million VR headsets were shipped globally in 2016. Oculus Go represents just one of Facebook’s multi-pronged efforts to grow its VR business.
