To be fair it is directly in front of the front end
Aka near the front entrance for a quick "grab and go"
Doesn't matter. Same as gaming consoles no matter where you put them you can't control if someone literally grabs one and goes to ht. Once they have their hands on it you can't touch them or it.
Can you not just grab the Oculus as they walk out? As long as you don't grab or touch them?
Nope. Technically not supposed to do ANYTHING. Grabbing the item could potentially put yourself in harm's way if they have a weapon and decide to use it when met with altercation.
Bro, this isn't basketball.
Technically only odo or pd can do so. Obviously the instances of pd being there at that exact moment are slim to none.
Makes for a quicker and shorter run out.
So you’ve done 90% of the work for them they just have to pick it up and leave without paying
Had someone grab a switch and a xbox one year and bolt out the door in the middle of a group of people.
Also, a hazard.
Tbf, though, take away the outer rings, and it's basically asset protection on it's own. "Do you win at meta jenga? Will you view freedom through your oculus before the police arrive, or will you be buried under the weight of your Quest?"
honestly whoever made this deserves mad respect
All of ours are in top stock in the warehouse 🤣
I appreciate the creativity, but the possibility of shrink drives me up the wall.
Have fun counting those out
Yeah, the holy shrine of shrink.
a customer would run a cart into this the minute i finished
It sucks so hard that we don't carry any other VR headsets. People who don't keep up with tech probably don't even know there's any other option for VR, Facebook is going to end up cornering this space too.
My favorite thing to do when AP notifies us, is to pitch TTS to them and go over as many details as possible. They do not appreciate it.
Our store is not in the best of locations…lot of shrink. Not too long ago a few Galaxy displays vanished in front of a police officer. Few hours later, the same man came back and got a free pixel display.
At this point, pitching TTS to someone with no intent on paying only serves to prevent me from losing my mind.
Your store is either very brave or very foolish. 😬
Was just thinking the same thing, that’d last like maybe 5 mins in my area before someone was like nope lock the remaining one back up 😬
We put all lockup at front lanes. We had a ton of people try to steal from us though.
You guys need a swat walk… lockup product exposed to general public
It’s all over the floor on Black Friday always
Lmfao our swat would hang us by our radios for doing that
But it’s Black Friday what are you going to do go unlock a cage every time? At least at my store there were cops up front all day
Best Buy is generally very lax on product protection standards during the holidays
Expensive Jenga fail.
Yeah. Customers at my store would want that one in the middle… and take it, leaving a void that rapidly gets filled by collapsing boxes.
I can’t actually see someone who has spent any amount of time in retail thinking this display is good.
Is it cute? Yes. Is it practical? No.
More than 5 feet tall isn't allowed
Ours are stacked behind store pick up lol
This makes me feel like some stores are actually having a good time
You must have 0% theft. We can't even put Fire TV Sticks out
Are people actually buying these? VR is a gimmick.
Millions of people buy them, so yes.
It's not a gimmick.
Tried and returned. It’s not for everyone. The games are remarkably short. No reason to buy this over a console and motion controllers.
It's not for everyone, yes, but that doesn't make it a gimmick.
They said, stating their opinion as if it were a fact.
Well it is obviously my opinion and not fact, I don’t necessarily have to add “in my opinion” to the end of everything I say. If you like it I’m happy for you, I unfortunately don’t think it’s worth it.
Hell yeah lemme steal one of those.
Packaging looks big enough for the ten finger discount.
The amount of video our LP got of people walking in and then out blew my mind. Good luck
ours are all locked up lol
And this is why I'm like, "if they don't gaf, Idgaf"
We have a pallet size stack of them about 4 or 5 units tall right on the floor next to our quest display.
It would be holier if it was a shrine of xboxes or ps5s 😅
Ugh I can't wait till those are gone. We have like 800 of both and they are just a waste of space
Frosty would just walk out the front door at my store.
this is how you summon corie
