However, the new Oculus headset is going to be neither of these. Even the low-end Gear VR headset that Oculus makes in partnership with Samsung requires a phone for power. While the device's final design and features aren't finalised, the focus is on creating a high-quality VR experience that people can engage with on the go. Instead, the company sees PC-connected Rift headsets and mobile phone-powered holsters like Gear VR as completely separate categories that will operate parallel to any standalone VR hardware. It will cost as less as $200, which is half of the price of Oculus Rift and will be a standalone model sans the need of a PC or smartphone.

Devices like the Pacific and Santa Cruz are steps in the right direction in tapping the full potential of the VR market. And while it's horsepower will be greater than that of the Gear VR, it won't have positional tracking technology, the technology that enables a VR headset to identify where a user is in a room.

It is said to use a wireless remote not dissimilar to the one included in the newer version of the Samsung headset. Facebook-owned Oculus VR earlier this week slashed the price of its Rift plus Touch bundle to $399 for a limited time.

The self-contained unit will cost just $200 (around £160) when it ships next year, according to Bloomberg sources.

Standalone headset could be a game-changer for entire VR market.

The idea behind a smaller VR headset is to enable users to pack it inside their bags. The Pacific will rely on a wireless controller and will ideally be marketed for viewing multimedia, social networking, and playing games. This new video format will allow VR content to be created much more cheaply. The main reason I haven't sprung for one is that one tangled cord or an overly excited head bob is likely to send my whole setup crashing to the floor. Samsung is in the lead, according to the International Data Corporation.
