TPCast, the wireless transmitter first launched for Vive, is going to be arriving in few different regions soon including US, Canada, and much of the European Union. Pre-orders, which are available now, are slated to arrive as early as next week.
Launching pre-orders quietly yesterday afternoon in the US and Canada, TPCast for Rift pre-orders ran out almost immediately. Priced at $350 and only currently available direct from TPCast, the only other solution for customers looking to get their hands on one of the Rift-specific TPCast units is to either sign up for updates and wait, or purchase from a foreign storefront. Find US/Canada availability here.
European availability is still good, as the device is carried by a number of German and UK retailers capable of shipping all over Europe. Retailers are nearly universally selling the TPCast for Rift for around $460 (€390, £350). This price however includes value-added tax (VAT). Find European availability here.
