After seeing what you can do with the vive I think £700 is pretty fairQuote

Barnacules Nerdgasm has a 35 minute up showcasing the Vive, While it is impressive I couldn't bring myself to spend that amount on something that I's use 3 or 4 times to paint in a 3D space.Quote

Watched that earlier, has fueled my need to go and find one in the office and have a play. It's definitely worth the money, VR is a game changer fo sho.Quote

I'll be getting the Rift purely for Elite Dangerous but the Vive would be overkill as I want to be sitting down when travelling through star systems Quote

How is this so when all they have to do is ship a boat load of these to the uk and then mail them to us from a UK based depot. No, that would be to hard for them, clearly the better thing to do is charge a horrific amount of money for postage when this box is going to be a few kilos and smaller than a pc case box.
I wasactually going to buy the Vive if it was about £500 but £750 which is the actual cost when you buy it from steam is far too much as I'm also upgrading my entire system to accomodate the VR upgrade.Quote
