Ohh no, there is an Agenda in the US. The Corporate Bottom Line Agenda. Expensive internet with no choices. IT support looked at like its half un-needed and unfunded with-in a company. The idea that changing your password on an aging windows-PC with sluggish hardware every month is the penultimate in corporate security.
The same reason Chip&Pin Credit Cards took so long to get in. The Digital Agenda, the people decide is not important. The ones who do, the ones who love the Digital age and all its chances at business are ruled by last generation CEO's and Politicians who's only daily tech use is there cell phones for phone call's.

He said more than $350, so $400 at least if not $450 or $500. Yeah, that's not going to happen for most people in that case. You can but a hell of a lot more tech for that kind of dough than a toy like that. At $350US that's $530 CDN atm. No fucking way anyone except the most die-hard VR fanboy would even consider one of those things at that price. You can buy an entire PC for that here. You can buy a PS4 for $400. Yeah, sorry Lucky you're going to have to do a metric shit ton better than that if you ever want to see any sort of real VR adoption.

I'm hoping a Rift can become my defacto gaming screen, assuming it takes off. And it if works, it's a peripheral, not something you need to upgrade every odd year.

I would rather they shoot for an impressive debut in terms of the tech than half ass it and give the naysayers ammo. $350 is not a big deal for a first iteration like this.

How about they cut the price by $50 by taking out the Xbone controller??
You are probably going to want to replace your Rift immediately every time a newer, lighter, more comfy model with massive boosts in image quality, clarity, sharpness, resolution etc. comes out.

It's a reasonable price given the hardware, ignore the cheapskates and trolls.
