Folks in the United States can finally get their hands on the Samsung Gear 360 virtual reality camera, but there is a caveat. Samsung has officially announced the camera’s launch in the U.S. today and has also confirmed the price. This camera was first shown off at Mobile World Congress back in February this year. Naturally, there were many who were anxious for it to hit the market, unfortunately, Samsung isn’t making it terribly easy to get your hands on one.

Samsung confirmed today that the Gear 360 camera costs $349.99 in the United States. It also confirmed the limited release of this camera in the country.

The company is only going to sell it at VidCon which is underway in Anaheim, California. Gear 360 is only going to be available for purchase this week during VidCon, so if you’re not near the city you’re out of luck.

If you are really interested in picking one up you may have to find someone who can attend VidCon and get one for you or else you’re out of luck like everybody else.

Samsung does plan on a full launch of the Gear 360 but the company says that it’s going to provide details about that later this year. It may take a couple of months before the 360 is available at your local Best Buy.
