Samsung has just announced that it will be selling its Gear VR headset next month, priced at $199. Keep in mind you’ll need the Galaxy Note 4, also made by Samsung, for it to work – but it will provide you with a 2560×1440 display, leap frogging the 1920×1080 panel found in the Oculus Rift DK2 unit.

Oculus VR collaborated with Samsung on the Gear VR, so this isn’t some second-grade VR experience. What’s going to hold people off, is this combo is close to $1000 – especially if you weren’t set on purchasing the Galaxy Note 4 in the first place. For those who were going to pick up the Galaxy Note 4 as their next smartphone, a $199 investment for a VR headset is not a bad deal by any means.
