Samsung’s virtual reality headset, the Gear VR, is now available for purchase over at Best Buy although right now it is through their website only. However it could end up being on store shelves as well depending on how sales go. It’s interesting to see this suddenly appearing at Best Buy for sale though since the Gear VR is still considered to be in the early stages of development.
Hell the store the Gear VR uses for applications and games of a virtual reality nature is the Oculus Rift store which isn’t even able to have games and apps for sale. Everything on there is free and, for the most part, are demos of full products waiting to be sold. There is no warning though on the Best Buy website regarding the fact that this is still in its early stages even though there is a big list of warning in regards to what not to do with the Gear VR (Kids shouldn’t use it, don’t wear it while driving, etc etc).
If you happen to own a Galaxy Note 4 and have been wanting to buy a Samsung Gear VR headset, you can now do so off of Best Buy’s website for $199.99.
