Last week VRCircle reported Best Buy would start selling Gear VR in their stores. The great thing about Best Buy vs. buying online is the "try before you buy" concept. To that end starting on Sunday, February 8th at select Best Buy retail locations you'll be to try Gear VR for yourself.
The Gear VR, currently only available in the “Innovator Edition,” requires the addition of a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 - the only phone that is officially supported with Gear VR at the moment (Don't have a Note 4? There are workarounds)
The demo will include Samsungs app for watching immersive 3D videos via their Milk VR service.
To check and see if your local Best Buy store is offering free demos, check out Best Buy’s web site. Right now there’s about 68 stores on the list, but Samsung recommends contacting your local store (even if listed) before heading out, as locations are subject to change.
The Samsung Gear VR seems to be very popular among consumers and selling better than expected as Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe mentioning that they sold much more than they had expected.
2015 is really shaping up to be the Year of VR.
