edited March 2016 in Samsung Gear VR
So im a starter a basic gamer nothing too bug, but ive seen the oculus rift and thats expensive for googles. then i seen the samsung gear vr, now i know it is designed for samsung mobile phones and i dont have a samsung phone im using a oneplus one and i do have a computer that is able to use the vr as i got it passed by steam vr test and the oculus test. I know my computer can run vr and i cant afford to buy the oculus but i would like the samsung vr cause its just about 120$ Cad with shipping and other fees, my question is, can i use the samsung vr on pc? and if i could who would i do that? thanks

    No - the Gear VR can only be used with the appropriate Samsung Phone. It can't be connected to PC (it doesn't have any screen inside).

    No i'm afraid you can't.

    You have a good PC, maybe you're best waiting until prices of the HMDs come down or other, cheaper products come out?

    I disagree. 

    A thread to which the answer is No, should indeed be necro'ed when the answer is turned to Yes, even if it takes a couple years.

    To wit: yes, it is now possible to run a GearVR and an Oculus Quest as a PC VR headset, using third party streaming software.
