Why don't you care about poor people Oculus

Why discontinue it. You are clearly money stealers and not everyone has $400

    They're still supporting the Go with updates till 2022.

    Because a better lower price headset is coming... 

    1) You ask them for support "roblox"
    2) You next ask them to support controllers
    3) You are not as happy with any "support"/features the GO gives

    Over all you blame them for not supporting GO - its because GO wasn't built for that. It was simply a media device. NOT a game console like Quest and Rift S can do. More or less the next headset is going to be the right step up for you.

    For a media device it still has lots of games on it. Maybe not of the same complexity of the Quest. but they are there. Overall im fine with it. But if they make it so all the shit i bought disappears after 2022. Im going to be pissed.

    I think Oculus cares most about people with limited funds. That's why Oculus don't want to make hmds costing $1,000, but tries to give you the best VR experience for the lowest price.

    Wait a few months, maybe Oculus soon will be ready with a new and cheaper Quest 2. 
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz gpu boost, 11 GHz mem speed); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1 - the latter nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

    Me thinks that we will see "The Costco Effect" play out... in which there will never be an available product sold for below a certain cost.  Example: You can find this year's newest $1,000 laptop at Costco discounted for $800, along with last year's $1,000 (previously discounted to $800) laptop marked down to $500.  But you will NEVER find the previous year's $500 laptop for $300.
