@Se7en11, Glad you're doing ok man. Well ... sure we're not kids anymore, impatient to get their hands on the new toy, but makes no sense. I don't know where you are but I'm living in a rather small country, but still in the European Union ... it makes no sense. Sure I could wait, but I'm not buying it from a let's say eBay seller with 100-200 Euro on top, and by the time it is available to me at original price, there might be already some of the competition's HMD's as well. You see my point ?

Im not sure its Htc/vives fault.
Im based in Thailand and its not been available here, High import taxes i would say is the number one reason they dont sell here, Add to that i would say most people dont have space or a PC to run a Vive.
So i dont blame them for not selling in my country.
Im guessing the same goes for your country. Import taxes, No resellers, not enough demand for the units.
Its annoying but i see there reasons.

Well Thailand is a whole another story... Regarding my country ... I've noticed recent years a lot more ppl are buying staff online... more and more. There is no import taxes since we're not just in Europe but European Union as well. So that's what makes it a bit more mistyreious. It makes sense what you're saying, I agree that the main targeted countries are always the biggest and the richest, but still having all others as an option (with same import regulations) should benefits them more than hurt them. Anyway I actually find a one german retailer which offers the Vive pro pre-order as well as shipping to my country, so my case is solved.
