No


I think what you meant was "Yes".

It's Google Cardboard with a remote controller and slightly higher spec requirements.

I looked for one of these last week and was £79 then. Not sure this is a deal..

These go for about £35 second hand if you can find a good condition one. Aren't they releasing an updated version soon?

This was released in October 2017. I'm sure the original Mk 1 version is available second hand for c£35 ... but doubt that this Mk 2 version is.

I think that might have been for the original Daydream View 1 - but I could be wrong!!

Whoops, didn't realise V2 was already out, sorry - what's different then? The thumbnail looks like a V1 model.

Having watched a few reviews on YouTube it appears that V2 is altogether an improvement on V1 in terms of design, comfort etc. One specific change is that the V2 headband has a strap going over the top of your head. However, the consensus is that it's not necessarily worth upgrading if you already have V1. I'd really like to try this before I commit - last year PC World had an in-store demo.

Cheers, I could probably have googled it myself but I'm not afraid to admit that I'm really lazy today

I have used both and own a DayDream. They are completely different experiences. Come back to me after you have played something like Virtual Virtual Reality or Eclipse edge of light on the DayDream.

It's definitely the latest version. Google Store would not promote and sell v1 and not mention v2 which is less than 2 months old.
