The device will launch with Oculus' software ready for installation on your phone, including a "VR-specific home screen for navigating between apps, a VR movie theater experience, and the Oculus app store." The company did note that you will need a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, as the device is the only one compatible with the Gear VR and Oculus' mobile SDK.
"Innovator Edition" VR headsets will cost $200 for the headset or $250 for the headset and a Bluetooth 4.0 controller. Given that the Galaxy Note 4 is the only compatible (and apparently powerful enough) device, the whole set will cost you around $1000 if you bought the phone unlocked, a hefty price for a likely early version of the tech.
