Its happening. Man I love that gif. But for anyone that's excited about Samsung's Gear VR, well it looks like Best Buy is getting their demo units in right about now, for their Samsung Experience area of the stores. So you should be able to pop in and play with the Gear VR at your local Best Buy pretty soon. While Samsung still hasn't announcing official pricing for the Gear VR, we have heard rumors that it'll be cheaper than we thought it would be, which is always great news. We'll keep our eyes and ears open to see what kind of pricing the Samsung Gear VR gets this time around, as I'm sure there will be a new model in the Spring with the Galaxy S6.

We're also hearing that when the Gear VR is available in Best Buy stores for people to try out, that they'll have to sign some forms. Likely saving Best Buy's butt in case anything happens. The customers will also be asked to sit down while using the Gear VR. Which makes sense as you don't want someone standing up in Best Buy using the Gear VR. That's just an accident waiting to happen, and it's smart for Best Buy to try to avoid that.
