Today at Oculus Connect 2. Oculus executive Peter Koo announced a new consumer version of Gear VR that is lighter than the current Innovator edition and more flexible by supporting Note 5, S6 Edge+, S6, S6 Edge. At $99 is also cheaper that the $199 innovator edition. More good news is you will not have long to wait. The new Gear VR version will be available to ship on Black Friday which is November 17th.
For movie fans there was more good news. Netflix will be fully integrated as of Today!
The company also announced Oculus Video, which will include the new Facebook 360 degree videos. We knew of course that Facebook would be in there somewhere so no new surprise there. For those regular readers who hopefully waited before purchasing their new Gear VR you'll be glad you did. John Carmacks earlier tweet helped us out!
