Oculus confirmed last year that it’s going to launch a standalone virtual reality headset called Oculus Go. The headset wouldn’t require a PC or smartphone to function as all of the components required to power virtual reality experiences will be housed within the headset itself. A leaked Oculus Go retail box appears to have surfaced online which suggests that the headset might be launched with more than 1,000 VR apps, games, and movies.

We already know that the Oculus Go is going to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and it’s going to feature a 2,560×1,440 pixel resolution screen with support for spatial audio.

The Facebook-owned company has confirmed that the Oculus Go standalone virtual reality headset is going to cost $199 but it’s yet to confirm when it’s going to be released. We can reasonably expect the headset to be released in the next few months.

The leaked Oculus Go retail box mentions that more than 1,000 VR apps, games, and movies will be available for the headset at launch but it’s unclear just how many movies will account for this 1,000 figure. Oculus already sells movies that users can view in a virtual theater,

The box also mentions that the headset has 32GB of internal storage which increases the possibility that Oculus might sell multiple versions of the headset with varying amounts of internal storage.
