Google's most accessible VR headset is now available in France, the UK, Canada and Germany, via the official store. For something that was meant to bring VR to the masses, Google had been unusually coy about actually putting it out there. The search giant only started selling its own version of the headset in the US in February. Before then, you had to source from third parties (fortunately there are many), or change your cereal or newspaper of choice. Even then, headsets varied in quality for something made of cardboard, and not all the manufacturers offered the newer version, so buying was a bit of an (affordable) minefield.

Either way, if you're sold on the Google-branded headset, expect to pay 20€/$20(CAD) or £15 depending where you are, with savings to be made if you're willing to buy in pairs (30€/$25/£25 respectively). Shipping is free. Right now, it doesn't look like the two other VR viewers Google sells in the US (Mattel's View Master, and the Goggle Tech C1) are available in the new locations. It's good to see more options reaching more places, but we all know there's only one proper way to roll with Cardboard.
