How hot is the HTC Vive? According to HTC's Shen Ye (yes, the brains behind our Futurology series) tweeted Monday that more than 15,000 units of the virtual reality system were sold in less than 10 minutes on Day 1 of preorders. That's in the neighborhood of 25 Vives sold every second.
Woah, more than 15k units in less than 10min :o— Shen Ye (@shen) February 29, 2016
The only bad news here? If you shelled out $799 (or more, outside the U.S.) for a Vive, you still have to wait until April for delivery.
