Samsung and Oculus has a treat for fans of VR which has been hard to get hold of in Ireland and despite last years Note 4 in which people particularity  bought for over the note Note Edge fans where pretty annoyed and seeked to get the headset elsewhere despite the cost of it..

There is now a more affordable version coming in November which costs $99 which is great value but as for availability here in Ireland it remains to be seen..It will initially launch in the states and will be compatible with the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+, S6 and S6 edge. Also there is to be much more content available too which sounds good.

Samsung has been at the forefront of delivering mobile experiences and ‘Gear VR Innovator Edition’ launched last year was no exception,” said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics. “We see virtual reality as the next computing platform, and we are thrilled to partner with Oculus on Gear VR to set the standard for mobile VR and bring this revolutionary product to consumers.”

“Together with Samsung, we’ve redefined virtual reality and created the best mobile VR experience available today,” said Brendan Iribe, CEO, Oculus. “On Gear VR, people are playing immersive VR games with friends, sharing 360 video experiences, and teleporting around the world with photos and videos – and it’s only the beginning for what’s possible with mobile VR.”
