Back at MWC 2017 this past February, Samsung announced the new Gear VR with Controller out of a collaboration with Oculus. It’s just a Gear VR but with a pairable controller, but we had no word on when it would become available for purchase or how much it would cost. Now, in the wake of Note 8 news, the company has confirmed the accessory’s launch date and price.
According to Samsung, the Gear VR with Controller will land on September 15th. It’ll retail for $129.99 which is just $30 more than a standard Gear VR. Pre-orders will begin as soon as tomorrow, August 24th. You’ll be able to find the VR viewer at Samsung.com, Amazon.com, Best Buy, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, US Cellular, and T-Mobile. The company notes it works with the new Galaxy Note 8, however it also works with devices stretching all the way back to the Galaxy S6 lineup.
