Samsung wants to sell customers on its Gear VR headset in a big way, so much so that it's giving away its virtual-reality headsets for free to anyone who buys one of six phones.

Between now and June 9, buyers who pick up a Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, S6, S6 Edge or S6 Edge+ will also walk away with a Gear VR. To make sure you have something to look at the moment you strap on the VR headset for the first time, Samsung is also tossing in $150 worth of games and more from Oculus, the company that powers the Gear VR.

We're big fans of VR here at CNET. If you aren't sure you'd want a headset like the Gear VR, we've got some really good reasons why you should. Mostly, because it's cooler than words can describe.
