The hype surrounding HTC’s debut VR effort appears to have paid off for the Taiwanese tech firm after it revealed the Vive had received 15,000 preorders within its first 10 minutes of availability.

The headset, which went on sale Monday, offers one of the best VR experiences out there, but with its hefty $800 price tag – $200 more than the Oculus Rift – it wasn’t clear if regular early adopters would rush to grab the new tech or hold back for more information (or perhaps to save the cash for a suitably powerful PC to handle the hardware).
