    Thanks Zolaan, I’ve added Evetech’s pricing for the FireFly to the article 🙂

  • Zolaan

    Awesome! Prices these days are ludicrous.

  • ice_blade_za

    Some one in comments on a previous article said it cost them a R20000 to get the HTC Vive bought and shipped (with taxes) into South Africa. They also said it was worth every cent. Me …. I’ll wait for second or third generation when the prices are at the average joe’s level.

  • LeakysandwichZA

    Yup, was ±20k with the $ at around R14,50 – all inclusive.
    One thing to take into consideration is warranty – HTC does not cover SA for Vive warranty repairs and/or additional accessories, so if you have to have something fixed, you have to pay to get it there and back again (even if they then fix/replace it under warranty). It is not cheap – I can attest to that. But like other people said, it is worth it – you cannot properly explain it to anyone until they experience it 🙂

    a friend of mine bought the Oculus Rift DK2 set for around R7000 imported… It’s a nice piece of kit even if it’s just to help develop Oculus software/hardware.
