Oculus has announced a new standalone virtual reality headset that will release in 2018. The Oculus Go  VR headset will release for $199.

It doesn't requires any cables or a smartphone to be used as a display.  The device will be "super lightweight" in order to make the best experience for users. 

"[The LCD display will] dramatically improve visual clarity and reduce screen door effect," said Oculus. Speakers will be built right into the headset, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. 

All Gear VR apps will be compatible with Oculus Go.

Is it capable of real time movement tracking cause without it it's not VR to me. And I fear at that price it may not be. I hope it is but I fear it is not.

So does it have its own OS installed along with a store to buy/download any apps/games? Or would you have to hook it up to your PC and go to the Oculus Store still to get everything?
