The HTC Vive ‘Sold’ 15,000 Units In Less Than 10 Minutes

HTC ViveThe HTC Vive went up for pre-order yesterday, for a cool $799. The big question was how many would stump up the cash to get in on the premium VR experience early.

Well, we have some numbers. Thanks to HTC employee, Shen Ye, it’s been revealed that 15k of the devices were sold in the first 10 minutes of the device going live. He tweeted:

Important to note, none of these headsets are ‘sold’ yet. The pre-orders don’t actually take your money until the devices are ready to ship, so all kinds of shenanigans could happen to any number of these orders.

Still. It’s pretty impressive number for a device so expensive, that is no doubt.
