Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the milestone today as part of his opening keynote at the F8 2018 developer conference.

As well as the standard 32GB version for $199, there is also a 64GB model available for $249.

The $200 standalone virtual reality headset was briefly available for pre-order on Amazon on Tuesday morning. Battery life is claimed to last between 1.5 and 2 hours of gaming, 2 and 2.5 hours for video viewing. The headset's design echoes that and the experience once you jump in.

The hardware is the company's first standalone headset and has launched with more than 1,000 apps, games and experiences.

Fabregas scored the match's lone goal while Hazard was the Blues' most threatening player on the pitch. Fifth-place Chelsea is six points behind Liverpool , with a game in hand over the third-place team.

There have been various solutions in the past to get cheap VR into the hands of consumers.

Another item that I love about this headset is the way they've built in-headset stereo audio into the design while still keeping the headset straps fabric and portable.

You might not get a Go for free, but you can still watch along to the keynote.

There are definitely some quality sacrifices that had to be made in order to arrive at the $199 price point.

The Oculus Go is a follow-up to the Oculus Rift, but unlike that device it does not require a connection to a computer.

The display does a fine job, but is nothing to write home about.

Discovered by RoadtoVR, Reddit user theDarthonly shared a photo of sixteen Oculus Go units on display at a Fayetteville, Arkansas Best Buy, some marked 32GB and others 64GB, matching previously-known storage capacity options for the headset.

All right, so what's so special about this headset?
