Amazon has the latest model of the Samsung Gear VR on sale right now, knocking $40 off of the price, bringing it down to just $89.99. That's a great price for the Gear VR, seeing as it doesn't typically drop in price, so it's a good time to pick one up.
The Samsung Gear VR does come with a controller. So you're looking at a VR headset that allows you to actually act within the virtual reality world. The Gear VR does work with the latest Samsung flagship smartphones, including the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus and earlier models. So if you have a recent Samsung flagship device, this is definitely worth picking up. The Gear VR is made by Oculus and Samsung, so you get access to a ton of great games and apps that Oculus has already developed.
