Announced during Oculus Connect in September, the new GearVR model is 19 percent lighter than the existing Innovator Edition, which sells for $199. It also should be more comfortable to wear, as it boasts "improved ergonomics," while a redesigned touchpad should help with navigation.
The new device also works with more smartphones than the Innovator Edition, as it supports the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+, S6, and S6 edge.
In terms of games and other VR app support, Oculus says there are "dozens" of made-for-VR games "coming soon." One of the launch titles is Oculus Arcade, which features more than 20 classic titles like Pac-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Gauntlet. In addition to games, there will be "thousands" of videos and films to watch using the headset from the likes of Netflix, Twitch, and other video-on-demand services.
