At the moment it is not yet released and I do have my own suspicions as to when it will be. But when it is finally out where will be the best places to buy it be? In this post, we find the best places with the best prices so you don’t get conned…
While personally, I do enjoy using eBay to grab a bargain or two there will be people who will be selling the Oculus GO at prices well above $200. Why? Because people buy up a load of stock on new tech releases so they can sell it for massively marked up prices. So the changes are good you will get an Oculus Go from eBay from the very first day of release, but do expect to pay through the teeth for it.
Amazon is your safest bet when it comes to new tech. While some people will sell them for marked-up prices on Amazon as well, it’s more common to pay the basic RRP. They will have loads of stock and will ship very quickly. Above all Amazon is a safe shop. If you buy something on eBay and get conned you will have to fight Paypal to get the money back. With Amazon it is easier to get your money back in these situations.
While it might not be sold in every supermarket and large electronics store it will be in a lot of them. Best Buys already has a selling page up and even if you can’t find it online it is sometimes worth ringing around local supermarkets to see if they have any in stock.
I’m pretty sure Oculus will have more than enough stock for the Go esspecialy given its low price making it much more of an impulse purchase than most other VR headsets. Once the Go is out I will make another post to let you know EXACTLY what the price is going to be where to get it and more importantly what deals there are to be had.
