It didn't take long for Amazon to sell out of however many units of the Oculus Go it made available to preorder this morning-just a few hours after appearing online around midnight PT, according to Digital Trends. The new headset, developed by Facebook-owned Oculus, works without a smartphone connection or a more expensive virtual reality set-up designed for gaming.

In the past, Windows 10 users have faced weeks of waiting before the operating system updates finally roll-out to their machines. You won't need to download the update immediately, but you'll want to do so by the time we've reached October of 2018.

Oculus says the device is "hands-down the easiest way for people to get into VR", and claims to have over 1,000 games, movies, and apps that run in its VR app store. Reddit users were posting photos of locked cabinets full of Oculus Go hardware, and signs at the F8 registration desk stating that attendees would be able to pick up their complementary Oculus Go hardware at 2 P.M. on May 2. The headset is, of course, more comparable to the Gear VR when it comes to actual gameplay (they share the same game library), but Oculus has managed to make a number of improvements that make the cheap headset feel deeply luxurious to those familiar with mobile VR offerings to date. The headset costs $199 for the version with 32GB of onboard storage, and $249 for the 64GB variety.
