Just ahead of Facebook's F8 conference for developers today, photos and new details suggest that the company's low-priced standalone VR headset Oculus Go is close to an official launch. While much of the discussion is expected to center on privacy and data protection, Amazon's offering of a pre-order on the site suggests that the Oculus Go pre-order and launch date might also be announced at the show.
The product page also states that Amazon doesn't know "when or if this item will be back in stock". In order to solve this problem, the Oculus Go was announced late previous year and does not require a PC or smartphone, and instead functions as a stand-alone unit.
The listing also says the device is only eligible for shipping to USA addresses.
Pre-orders of the $200 Oculus Go virtual reality headset were snapped up by eager buyers in the middle of last night, resulting in the device selling out in a matter of hours, according to a Digital Trends report.
If you're intrigued by Oculus Go, stay tuned throughout F8.

It's also wireless and features a "fast switch" LCD screen with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor.
The new Go headset runs the same games and apps as Facebook's Gear VR system.
With over 1,000 apps, games and experiences available at launch, there will be plenty to play when your Oculus Go arrives.
