Why is it so expensive? Have a Samsung VR sealed and can't decide whether to sell it or try it. It was a free gift with the S7

This is the VR system for PlayStation, not one designed for phones.

I know. Still don't see why it's much more expensive. Costs like the console really if not more

I posted a similar argos deal on monday when a majority of stores were doing collection slots between 3-5 days which sold out quick but not delivery options so nice might help people who missed it monday.

wow i thought these things only cost like £100...

Glad im not intrested in them yet

Cold until it at least comes in line with the price of the console - bizarre paying for an add on nearly double the price x

Yeah, can understand that. It was really for people wanting one, that we're willing to pay more than the rrp. That makes me sad

It's a lot of money to spend, only to realise that there's nothing you want to use it with.

Few tech demos and a headache later and you'll be frantically working out how to return it.

I've not put cold as that's just my personal op, and like you say it's prob good for some body wanting it (my son) (not happening) X

Your Samsung Gear needs your Samsung S7 so isn't much cheaper than this in reality. The PSVR is better at VR too.

But I didn't spend extra for it. You need a PS4 and camera to use this instead and it costs more than my PS4

Because it is pretty much a new console. There is a lot of power in this. It is nothing like the phone VR. Comparing this VR headset to similar ones: Oculus Rift is £550, HTC Vive is around £759 (From what I can find). With these two as well you need a pretty good PC to handle it. So PS VR is a really good price in comparison.

The S7 alone is like £500. This costs more, but not much more for a better experience.

I didn't want the VR. It was free with the phone. Sony don't give you this for free with the console.

Swings and roundabouts as you still can use your phone with a Samsung.
All VR has a place tbh. Gear is great to experience VR, then psvr for the cheaper option and Vive and oculus for the enthusiastic.

And your Playstation still works without the VR.

This has oled screens and all kinds of electronics inside it. It costs more because it's much more advanced. Your Gear VR requires the Samsung phone to use as a screen. A PS4 has no screen and you're not going to strap your tv to the headset.

You have to try it to understand. It's pricey, but it works and works well. It's also far cheaper than the PC alternatives available. I personally won't buy one as I found the novelty worn off after trying one. Won't say no to winning one though. X)

You really have to try one to understand why it's expensive. They're incredible, and very much "you get what you pay for".

What's going on with this?

Why has this come back on here as in stock again? Then I go to the Argos site and there isn't any there.


This deal ended,/they all went. Now it's back again, but seemingly with nothing actually happening?



I'm not missing something am I, clicking the wrong thing or something. Not just being dim?

​​Anybody in the bristol area still looking for 1? ive got a spare reservation whats come through (I did 2 as a backup at different stores) message me if want it.

Did you get the one you ordered? Mine was cancelled due to 'no stock' even though it was avaiable when I ordered!

​Mine was yes but it was from a post I put on here start of week when argos were allowing reserving for store collection not deliveries.
