The newest version of the Samsung Gear VR is currently discounted about 25%, over on Amazon. Coming in at just $112 right now. That's not quite the lowest it has ever been, but it is pretty close. The Gear VR was announced back in February ahead of the Galaxy S8 launch in March. And it retails for $129, and rarely drops in price. So now's a great time to pick one up.
Samsung Gear VR comes with a controller this time around, to make it easier to play games and navigate through the virtual world. It does come with an adapter so it will work with older Samsung devices. It's compatible with the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus. With the Gear VR, you'll be able to experience a slew of different virtual reality games as well as watching videos in 360-degrees. On top of that, the Gear VR does also run on Oculus' platform, allowing you to use a ton of great, high-quality games.
