Zotac’s VR GO Virtual Reality backpack finally has a price attached to it. We first showed you the VR GO backpack when it was revealed at Zotac’s 10th Anniversary event in Hong Kong. The unit will go for $1999, which gives you the ability to strap this PC to your back and kick some ass in VR without cables holding you back.

The VR Go allows for 2 hours of continuous gaming as it is powered by two Li-ion batteries rated at 95Wh (6600mAh). The batteries are hot-swappable and can be charged separately, they have a 12V output for powering your Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. When you are not using the VG GO as a backpack it can be used at a normal desktop PC. The form factor will allow it to be placed vertically or horizontally on your desk.
