Latest Gear VR + Controller Combo Now $90 for Limited Time

Latest news

    Last month’s launch of Oculus Go, the $200 standalone VR headset, has stolen much of the virtual limelight as of late, but owners of recent Samsung flagship phones can still get in on many of the new apps and updates coming to the Oculus mobile store. Now, Samsung has temporarily reduced the price of the latest Gear VR headset + controller combo to as low as $90 on Amazon.

    The deal is available now and goes until June 16th, and can be found at
    from Samsung, BestBuy, and Amazon, although it looks like Amazon has the competition beat at the lowest price of $90. The headset + controller combo originally costs $130 MSRP.

    The latest model, released in 2017, is compatible with Galaxy S9+, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, and Galaxy S6 edge+.

    Also, for those who don’t mind buying a refurbished unit in good condition, you can grab one (plus controller) starting at a slightly nicer $55.
