My bank says that 599$ = 510 Euro!
Or the other way, your 699 Euro = 820$
Why is it that Europe gets fu***d that hard?
Why do we pay 221$ MORE than the Americans?
(just to be clear, this has nothing EU vs. US in it - its just a rant over the unfair currency difference!)
I really love my Vive and really wish to cheer for Vive - but you make it hard.

599$ is without tax (sprich NETTO), and the amount of that is not same in all countrys...
Alles klar? ;)

Ok, so I add tax.
I live in Denmark, on of the countries in the world with the highest tax.
On Import goods we add 25% in tax.
599$ + 25% = 748$
That is still 72$ More we pay in EU, than in US.
Is that fair?

US prices don't count state or federal taxes. EU prices do include VAT though.
So there's more going on, but US taxes vary wildly from area to area so it has to be done that way.
