15,000 HTC Vive pre-orders in under 10 minutes


Well, someone’s proud of their work.

After a ton of build-up, the HTC Vive was unleashed unto the world, at least in pre-order form. HTC VR Product Specialist Shen Ye revealed on Twitter that its Vive headset blew past 15,000 pre-orders in under 10 minutes of its availability.



As a side note, while we don’t have any hard numbers on the Oculus Rift, we do know that pre-order shipment batches were depleted all the way through May by the end of the first day. A pre-order today would mean a July shipment.

From what we’re looking at, first shipments for the Vive start April 5, though some have been told that it could be closer to May.
