I picked up the Oculus Go last night at Best Buy. Really nice little device. Actually higher resolution display than my Vive. It's a seated experience but still immersive and great for watching Netflix on a big screen in bed. Anyone else picked one up yet?

Since I see a thread has already been created. I picked one up on Amazon last week and it came in Tuesday (2 days ago). Bare in mind my only VR experience up to this point were cheap $2 - $35 VR headsets that you put your phone into. When I first put on the Oculus go, (in a room by myself) ... I uttered the words ... "OMG... WOW!"

 

Then I let the GF try it. She poo poo's almost anything tech, but after trying it, the next day she went over and grabbed the VR headset and put it on. She loves Netflix on it and she said: "This would be amazing for watching Netflix in bed". 

 

One of the first things I tried on the VR headset was of course porn. from "vrporn.com using the web browser. That was pretty damn impressive. 

 

At times if you are looking you can see some pixels. I think it's 1080 per eye, that being said i'm really excited for the day when it will be 4k per eye. After trying a standalone headset I can only imagine how cool head tracking is with the Vibe and being able to lean in. Too bad it can't be added to this headset.

 

I also at times hooked this up to a 22,000 mh portable battery pack to extend and to charge it. 

 

Overall this is pretty cool and I would recommend anyone who ever wanted to dip their toe into VR, to by this first and not the ###### sub $35 VR headsets. Besides those sucking compared to this, I was always annoyed I had to take my cell phone out of it's case and put it in there, what a pain in the ass.

Just purchased "end space" on the oculus go, and wow, while it might be slightly repetitive at first it really show cases what VR is all about.
