If you do not pre-order the new consumer version of the Samsung gear VR, you may have some problems with his favorite online shopping destination.

Amazon and Best Buy, both places that have been touted as having a margin of virtual reality accessory shows “temporarily not available” and “sold online” messages respectively.

Best of all, it seems to buy it directly from Samsung, where you can get one day of delivery, if you are not sick people (like me).


I reached out to Samsung and Oculus for comment and will update once I hear back. No company has made it clear how many devices will be available as soon as they went on sale yesterday, so I’m not ready to call them “little” just yet.

UPDATE Samsung representative gave us the following statement:

We are pleased with the overwhelmingly positive response received from the VR gear reviewers and eager buyers. We make every effort to fulfill all orders as quickly as possible.
