Oculus has a $200 wireless VR headset in the works for 2018

From Engadget - July 13, 2017

Based on the price, it sounds like Oculus is basically developing a headset powered by mobile hardware, similar to what you'd find in a modern smartphone. Pacific is reportedly lighter than Samsung's Gear VR (we assume when it actually has a phone plugged in), sources say. It will also have a wireless remote, similar to what Samsung's headset now includes. To be clear, it's not the evolution of the more capable Santa Cruz wireless prototype that we have already seen. That device packs in more powerful hardware, so it will likely go for well beyond $200 when it lands.

"We do not have a product to unveil at this time, however we can confirm that we are making several significant technology investments in the standalone VR category," an Oculus spokesperson said in a statement. "This is in addition to our commitment to high-end VR products like Oculus Rift and mobile phone products like Gear VR."
