Samsung’s Oculus-powered Gear VR is now available to pre-order for $99

If you just can’t wait for Samsung’s Gear VR headset to go on sale, then today is the day you’ve been waiting for – well, almost.

The company confirmed that the device is now available to pre-order for $99 and shipping will start from “as early as November 20.” There’s no word on global availability as yet.

As often seems to be the case for initial Samsung launches, the device will only play nicely with its own smartphones, but supported models include the Note 5, S6, S6 Edge and the S6 Edge+.

Now all we need is something worth watching.
