Just a few days after it went on sale in the US, the new 'consumer version' Gear VR headset is already sold out at third party retailers - while Best Buy is now listing the device as 'sold out online', Amazon says it's 'temporarily out of stock'.
However, those planning to purchase the $99 headset aren't completely out of luck as they can still head to the South Korean company's US website to purchase it. It's also worth mentioning that T-Mobile has also confirmed it'll begin carrying the device through its stores later this month.
The company is "working hard to fulfill all orders as quickly as possible," a Samsung spokesperson said.
The headset also recently went up for pre-orders in Europe, where Germany became the first country where Samsung has the device listed on its local website - price tag is €99 and shipping timeline is early December.
how many units went on sale actually ?? probably they ll put 5 and claim that all units are sold out which is actually true
That because Sony wants you to buy Sony Project Morpheus VR headset.
You can get google cardboard. Low tech solutions are always the best. Well not best, but more fun. They require a lot more innovation than just slapping together the best technology available.
