The HTC Vive and Oculus Rift might be the go-to options for those looking to dive into VR head first, with price no object. Unfortunately, for many of us, price is a very important factor. For those looking to experience a growing, thriving VR ecosystem on the cheap, the Samsung Gear VR is without a doubt the option we’d recommend.
Sure, not all the games are of the highest caliber, but for every dud, you’ll find an instant VR classic like Eve: GunJack, the Herobound series, Land’s End, and the list goes on. And right now, you can get the Gear VR for as cheap as $79 via Daily Steals. That’s a far cry cheaper than the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Yes, that’s a brand new, never used Gear VR.
For those interested in the Gear VR but without the phone to run it, Daily Steals is also offering a number of certified refurbished Samsung Galaxy phones that will play nicely with Samsung’s VR headset: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 – $499.99, Galaxy S6 – $399.99, Galaxy S6 Edge – $429.99, Galaxy S7 – $539.99, and the rest of the list you can find here.
