Who could have seen this coming. VR headsets on sale? Why? Demand is less than supply. Chaim Gartenberg:
Google’s Daydream View VR headset is on sale now for $49, $30 off the usual price of $79 and the first major deal we’ve seen for the Daydream View. The Daydream View VR headset is one of the best solutions for mobile VR yet, so if you’re looking to get started in the world of virtual reality and have a Daydream-compatible phone, it’s a good time to buy. Keep in mind that Daydream only works with a few phones right now: Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL, and Motorola’s Moto Z series, with Huawei’s Mate 9 Pro, ZTE’s Axon 7, and Asus’ ZenFone AR all planning to support the VR system when they release as well.
Marketing speak aside, maybe if Google made Daydream View VR to work on an iPhone demand would be greater than supply.
