The Oculus Go features 32GB of storage and is mainly for those people new to the VR experience that are looking for an entry level foray into the world of virtual reality. The headset is completely self-contained, and unlike the Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S, the games and experiences on the Oculus Go are not as intense.
The ease of setup makes this perfect for newbies. You just strap the helmet on, download your games and experiences inside the headset (a strong Wi-Fi connection is essential) and begin. No messy or complicated wires, no cartridges or disks, no complicated connections to your smartphone - just connect and go. And although your friends standing behind you may not be able to see what you're playing (this feature is available on the Rift when connected to a VR ready laptop or desktop), there's also nothing tethering you to a television set. The Oculus Go comes with a single controller (unlike the dual controllers of both the Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S) and its primary function is to point at menus and navigate through screens. With access to shows, movies, games, and more, the Oculus Go has been constructed to accommodate extended use. Injection foam molding helps keep things lightweight, while soft, adjustable straps and breathable fabrics work to comfortably secure the Go in place.
If you're looking for a kinder, gentler journey into the exciting world of VR, then the Oculus Go should be your first whistle stop. It's perfect for casual gamers, parents and grandparents, or anyone else that wants a toned-down but functional VR experience.
