The latest intel out out of Samsung-land is that their Gear VR headset may hit retail store shelves as early as December 1st of this year. That would make for an exciting holiday season of VR gaming for Samsung users. As a reminder, the Gear VR headset is designed to work in tandem with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, although Sammy is working on broader platform compatibility for the device.
Here's a quote with some more details,
The manufacturer initially did not reveal any exact information about the release date or the price of its virtual reality accessory, but a recently-leaked internal document purportedly hints that Samsung might be gearing towards a launch on December 1, at least in its home turf at South Korea. Reportedly, the Gear VR might fetch a KRW 200,000 ($187) price tag. Then again, you'd also need to spare some cash for the Galaxy Note 4 if you want to use of Samsung's VR accessory.
Which of our members are planning to pick this up as well as the Galaxy Note 4? Do you think this first solid evolution of the Virtual Reality concept will finally take off into the mainstream, or will it remain a niche product for now?
