As of today if you order an HTC Vive VR Headset you should receive it mere days after you place your order, no longer is it a preorder process where you would need to wait an indeterminate amount of time. The package will cost you $799US or $1,149CAN so it is not quite an impulse buy but it certainly is very tempting. You can order online or drop by a Microsoft Store, Gamestop or Micro Center if such things exist in your neighbourhood. Al took a look at some of the technology in the Vive in this article, which is interesting to look at even if you can't quite afford one yet.
"HTC ViveTM can now be purchased through www.vive.com in 24 countries, shipping within 2-3 business days of purchase. In addition to online availability from HTC, individuals can now buy the revolutionary Vive virtual reality system in select Microsoft Stores, GameStop and Micro Center locations. Pre-orders placed through these retailers will be fulfilled beginning this week."
