I strongly encourage anyone who is curious about VR (and has the means) to get the Gear VR. It's an absolutely fantastic experience. I expected little more than Cardboard, and I am completely blown away by what I've seen so far. Even more excited for the "real" headsets coming out, but honestly, I'm just thrilled with the Gear. I am positive my friends are annoyed by me not shutting up about it. "OMG, AND THERE'S THIS ONE GAME WHERE YOU HAVE A JETPACK AND NOW I FEEL LIKE I HAVE A JETPACK" (Omega Agent)
Oh, and get a controller while you're at it. I had a blast without it, but it's even better with it - not to mention some of the coolest games require it. But yeah, this is my first experience (not counting minimal cardboard experience), and I'm beyond psyched. The hype is real for me.
Oh oh and and and...they are broadcasting some pretty good boxing matches (I'm a big boxing fan) this weekend. Very excited to see how that plays out.
