International release to follow

Oculus and Samsung's $99 Gear VR headset is now available in the United States.

The attractive price point comes with one caveat: the device is only compatible with this year's line of Samsung smartphones (the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6 Edge+).

The companies are touting more than 100 games and apps available at launch, with over 25 more "brand new made-for-VR games and experiences" planned for release by early December.

You can find Gear VR demo stations at select Best Buy and AT&T locations. The headset is also available for order via Amazon and can be found at T-Mobile shops starting next week.

According to the manufacturers, a worldwide release will happen sometime soon.
