Samsung Gear VR now available at Best Buy

Samsung Gear VR

One of America’s largest retailers, Best Buy is now offering the Samsung Gear VR head mounted wearable through its outlets across the country. The pricing remains unchanged at $199.99. The wearable was previously available solely through carrier outlets and directly from Samsung, so this could help Samsung move more units of the device.

Before you head over to Best Buy to pick one of these up, you should know that the device is only compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and no other device will support it. You will also need to ensure that your Note 4 is running the latest firmware issued by the carriers as it won’t work without the necessary software additions.

The Gear VR is based on the Oculus Rift which is yet to hit the markets. Samsung has a couple of nifty virtual reality based apps for the device, so you certainly won’t be disappointed with the experience that the Gear VR has to offer. Head over to Best Buy from the link below for more details.
