Folks who were thinking of picking up the Samsung Gear VR headset as soon as it releases might want to wait until a refresh/update of the device instead. There is a rumor floating around that the device has a widespread problem of overheating on your head after only 25 minutes of use.
What's especially troublesome for Samsung is that the device is supposedly scheduled to start shipping to retail channels on December 1st of this year. That doesn't leave them much time to fix a design flaw of this nature.
This news isn't all bad though... the other part of this rumor is that the device will supposedly retail for around USD $187, which is a great deal more affordable than many of us had hoped. Let's cross our fingers that Sammy can iron out the bugs.
