Oculus may have gotten a little head start by shipping its Rift virtual reality headset almost two weeks ago, but HTC's VR gadget is heading to customers today. The HTC Vive is heading out to folks who pre-ordered the $799 device that arrives with two location sensors and a pair of wireless controllers. The company confirmed reports of payment processing issues a few days ago, promising to send out shipments based on position in the pre-order queue. Of course, Oculus is facing shipping delays of its own due to "unexpected component shortage."

Even with the payment trouble, HTC met its "early April" shipping goal after beginning the pre-order process at the end of February. If you're looking for an idea of what do expect from the Vive, here's our full review and the story of how HTC and Valve teamed up to build the gear.
