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.

    Great, in the EU, yet no way to get this in my country. Fantastic. Great decision, joining the EU.

    “Launching pre-orders quietly yesterday afternoon”
    This is incorrect they launched early in the morning I placed my order at 2:58 AM.

    Given the price drops on the main VR headsets it’s astonishing this glorified router is still selling at nearly the same price as the main devices, what happened to the $200 range? I’d love to go wireless but at this price it’s just totally unjustifiable and makes waiting to see what gen-2 will bring the only sensible option :(

    does the mic work with the oculus version? it’s still not working on the vive tpcast unless you do the work

    Pre-order arrived today – pro tip, fully charge the battery before first use or it won’t have enough juice to power the display in your HMD, other than that a breeze to set up
