Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: Nintendo’s Labo VR Kit Sells Out at Major Online Retailers

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

With Nintendo’s latest ‘Labo’ kit for Switch, the company made its first real strides into VR (not counting Virtual Boy). Within only a week of its release, the cardboard VR headset maker-kit is already sold out all over the web in the US and in parts of Europe.

Large online retailers such as Amazon USBest BuyTargetWalmart and NewEgg are all sold out of the $80 full set, which includes Nintendo Labo software, VR headset, Wind Pedal, Camera, Elephant, Bird, and Blaster. The cheaper $40 starter set is still in stock almost everywhere, which only includes the headset and attachable blaster.

European standbys such as Germany’s MediaMarkt and Amazon.de, France’s Amazon.fr and Fnac, and the UK’s Currys PC World and Game are all out of stock of the full set as well. If you can’t wait, Italy’s Amazon.it and the UK’s Amazon.co.uk still have availability, both of which ship to many European countries.

In the US, price gougers on eBay are currently listing pre-order guarantees for around $130 and up, underscoring just how rare Nintendo’s No. 4 Labo VR Kit has become in the days following its release. Most other ‘buy now’ options come from Japan or Korea, of course with their own hefty markups.

We suggest scouring your local big box store for any leftover units that may still be around. If you find any online, make sure to comment and we’ll try to include it in an update here.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
