Anyone thinking of exploring VR in true style should have this kit.. But its not cheap..

The new Gear VR headset and controller was announced a few months ago but its now available to buy in Ireland albeit it costly. There is no difference between this years and last years headset and this time around there is a bundled controller which is handy for the immersive experiences on offer. If you have just bought the new Samsung S8/S8P this will work with last years model of the headset so do not worry on that regard..

Having a remote is handy so you can now purchase the entire set from Argos however its not cheap due to the controller added in,You could buy separate other compatibles  and win on all levels with cost on this but for those who want to get the complete kit you now can.. This is however the most cost effective way to try VR in true style without buying and additional expensive hardware like what is required for VIVE ,Playstation and VIVE for eample so if you have the S7/S8 you just need this.

 

 

The new Gear VR with Controller offers 42mm lenses with 101-degree FOV (Field of View) and advanced distortion correction technology to minimize motion sickness. The Samsung Gear VR with Controller will support both micro USB and USB Type-C port with a converter in-box. Additionally, the Gear VR will have a strap on the headset to hold the Controller when it is not in use.
