$800 HTC Vive Scores 15,000 Pre-orders In 10 MinutesBy cheatmaster 07:53 Sat, 31 Jul 2021 Comments
HTC's Steam-powered Vive VR headset, which went on pre-order earlier this week, received 15,000 pre-orders in just 10 minutes. The revelation was made by Shen Ye, a VR product specialist at the Taiwan-based company.

That's quite impressive given that the headset costs a whopping $800 in the US (€899 in Europe). HTC CEO Cher Wang also took to Twitter to share what she assumed was an "overwhelming response to the start of pre-orders."

The HTC Vive is the second major VR headset that went on pre-order sale this year. Back in January, Rift from Facebook-backed Oculus VR was also made available to pre-order - the $600 device begins shipping March 28.
