Why Gearbox is working with Amazon on a virtual reality headset
Posted On July 28, 2021
Amazon has teamed up with Gearbox Software to create an online gaming headset.
The company said it has partnered with GearBox to create the Gear VR headset, which will work with Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR.
Amazon is also offering Gear VR as a standalone product.
The company has said the GearVR headset will launch in 2018 and it is targeting an early launch of 30,000 headsets.
It’s unclear if Amazon will sell the headset as an add-on to a console or a standalone headset.
Amazon’s initial VR plans include standalone headsets for gaming consoles and smartphones, but it is unclear if those plans will be extended to other types of VR hardware.
