Virtual reality (VR) has become one of 2016’s biggest technological trends and it’s set to grow even further by the end of the year, with VR headsets topping many Christmas wish lists. With anticipated yearly sales of 12.2 million VR headsets, how can you avoid festive upsets if things start to go wrong after finishing the Christmas dinner?
With the average VR headset costing between £350 and £550, once combined with the cost of consoles, games and additional devices to enable multi-player capabilities, parents could easily be forking out over £1,000 on high-tech VR gifts to give their children the ability to explore the virtual world like never before.
Thanks to Domestic & General (D&G), extended warranty experts, and GAME, for as little as £4.49 per month you can protect your Christmas presents against damage or repairs and ensure that your Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, PS4 Pro or Xbox One last well into 2017 and beyond.
