However, the F8 conference opened up to developers earlier today, so we will hopefully get some news on that front today, or at some point over the next couple of days.

The webpage, which went live at midnight, gives users the option to pre-order one of Facebook's first standalone VR headsets. The base Oculus Go will cost $199, comes with 32GB of storage, and the higher version comes with 64GB storage and will sell for $249. Mark Zuckerberg is expected to announce the Oculus Go availability in his keynote at F8 at 10 am PDT.

Zuckerberg has billed the device as an attempt to make VR adopted by the masses, with the goal of getting one billion people using the technology, which transports people into simulated environments. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor under the hood, spatial audio, and there is an integrated microphone as well.

The price for the 64GB Oculus Go is not known yet.

Meanwhile, several attendees at Facebook's big F8 developer conference happening this week have posted photos of a sign suggesting that everyone there will get free Oculus Go headsets tomorrow, May 2.

Facebook has revealed in January that Xiaomi is the manufacturer of the Oculus Go. The experience using the Oculus Go is like watching video on a 30-foot screen.

The new Go headset runs the same games and apps as Facebook's Gear VR system.

In 2014, Facebook paid $3 billion to acquire Oculus and retain its employees.
