Oculus Go VR Headset Is Available For Purchase

VR is a compelling technology, but most of the big sets tether you to a computer. Oculus is hoping to set players free with Oculus Go – an all-in-one VR headset that isn't powered by a PC or phone.

Oculus announced the mobile headset last fall, but starting today, if you’ve got $199, you can snag an Oculus Go VR Headset that contains 32 GB of storage (the 64 GB model is $249). While this headset doesn't need to connect to a phone or PC for power, you will need to connect to a free iOS or Android mobile app during setup.

The Oculus Go headset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chip paired with Oculus’ automatic Dynamic Throttling feature that theoretically offers a smoother frame rate. Meanwhile, the Go’s new display panel features 538 pixels-per-inch for a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Obviously, battery life will vary based on use, but a built-in lithium ion battery should provide about two hours of playtime for games or up to 2.5 hours for streaming media and video.

Nintendo Moving Mii Creation And Editing To Web Browsers

Nintendo has announced that Mii creation and editing will be available on browsers starting at the end of this month.

The news came in the latest, and presumably final, Miiitomo update for Nintendo's mobile social network app. Since Miitomo was Nntendo's method for adjusting your Nintendo online ID's associated Mii at your leisure, Mii editing is now going to simply be browser-based for people who want to change their Mii's looks.

Miitomo service is ending on May 9, a little over two years since its release. Outgoing Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima stated during the recent financial briefing that Nintendo has failed to achieve a satisfactory profit from their mobile offerings. Nintendo has also said that online details for the Switch should be arriving this month.

What Awaits You In Fortnite Season 4

Shutdown the rumor mill! The comet that has been the intense focus of speculation by Fortnite players has finally crashed on the battlefield. The comet is the central hook of Fortnite Season 4, which is now live in both Battle Royale and Save the World modes.

In Battle Royale, the comet splintered into shards, many impacting parts of the map, which lead to new discoveries, landing points, and something called a "hop rock." If you consume a hop rock, you can lift off with low gravity. Epic also implemented a number of tweaks and changes to Battle Royale, including the ability to destory structures on the pre-game starting island. Smaller changes range from headshots being prioritized when body parts are in the way to knocking a player off of the island rewards elimination credit. Regarding weapons, the crossbow has been vaulted, and the rocket launcher aim reticle is a fixed size regardless of player movement. The UI also received a number of tweaks, including an odd one: 4:3 aspect ratio is now supported. You can see the full listing of season 4 changes on Epic's official Fortnite site.

As of now, yes. Things can change but like last year I wanted to make sure we supported our Japanese publishers on our stage and this year we are working to do the same. It's important to us.
