With the announcement of the Oculus Quest, gamers will soon be able to experience a standalone VR headset, meaning there's no need for a PC, like the Oculus Rift. Additionally, you won't need external sensors to achieve what Oculus calls six degrees of freedom. Instead, there are four wide-angle sensors built into the headset, allowing your head to be tracked positionally, not just rotationally. In terms of optics, expect a level of quality on par with the Oculus Go, featuring a display resolution of 1600x1440 per eye. Its accompanying Touch controllers are similar to the Rift's. Starting at $399 for the 64GB headset, the Oculus Quest will launch in spring 2019.
