Gear VR headset is now available in the United States.

The attractive price point comes with one caveat: the device is only compatible with this year’s line of Samsung smartphones (the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6 Edge+).

The companies are touting more than 100 games and apps available at launch, with over 25 more “brand new made-for-VR games and experiences” planned for release by early December.

You can find Gear VR demo stations at select Best Buy and ATT locations. The headset is also available for order via Amazon and can be found at T-Mobile shops starting next week.

According to the manufacturers, a worldwide release will happen sometime soon.
