How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?

basically this.

it's a personal pet peeve when european guys complain about how much things cost there.  oh sure,. the ps4 cost you $50 more but my family pays almost a thousand dollars a month for health insurance.   how much do you pay for that!?!?
Pretty big difference between the US not being able to get its freaking healthcare system in order and a company, that is backed by Facebook in case anybody's forgotten, ignoring what is pretty much the norm in the games industry while on top of that also using a completely awful international shipping system which adds another stupid extra cost. Why didn't they simply make a deal with Amazon in the countries that they intend to sell these in?

Sure you could say that they don't have to do any of that, but people in Europe also don't have to buy the Oculus and at this price you can be certain that they won't, so if they expect to have any chance at getting a foothold in Europe then they can't expect people to pay 750€ for this when the PSVR will probably be at least 250€ cheaper.
