HTC will open up the pre-order flood gates for its Vive headset in a few hours, but how much will it cost outside of the US? The US pricing is $799, but for a country like Australia it's been bumped up to $899 - without shipping. With the dollar conversion right now, we're looking at around AU$1261 without shipping - add another $100-$150 for shipping and we're at $1400 or so.
