Pre-orders for the Gear VR, the mobile VR headset made in collaboration between Samsung and Oculus, opened up on November 10th. With the headset due to be released on the 20th, it looks like Best Buy has sold out of its initial stock, but other stores remain stocked.

best-buy-gear-vr-pre-order-sold-outOculus is listing the Gear VR as ‘Sold Out’ at Best Buy, with a greyed-out ‘Coming Soon’ button on the product page which was previously offering pre-orders.

Fortunately it looks like Amazon and Samsung’s official store are still stocked. Amazon’s offering is eligible for ‘Prime’ members, which means free two-day or cheap one-day shipping for those who just can’t wait to get their hands on the new headset.

Samsung’s pre-order page notes “Product will ship in 7 – 10 business days” while Amazon’s Gear VR product page is still simply showing a pre-order button with no specific notices of shipping.

    The 20th was a false date and a lie. They dribbled a meager handful out to be able to say they delivered before Thanksgiving and to get a few early impressions to guide their marketing but in fact there won’t be anything that could honestly be called delivery until sometime in January or even February. It wasn’t that they were overwhelmed; it went exactly as planned.

    This isn’t just deceit, it’s rotten to the core and utter disregard for their customers and any goodwill they might have obtained from doing what they promised. I’m personally going to have a hard time believing anything they say in the future. Fool me once and all that stuff…
