Truth be told the phone isn't a week old yet. And there we no leaked info about the Sensation that allowed devices to be rooted very early (Thuderbolt). But I'm sure root will come fast. As of now the only phones that will come close to this one are the Evo 3D, And Galaxy s2. And the 3D isn't out yet. So I'm sure if you get a Sensation you'll have your root access very quickly.

If I remember correctly (correct if I'm wrong), the Sensation has a locked boot loader that when 'rooted', will only hold a temporary root that will disable upon reboot.
Until HTC (if they do) provides some sort of method to unlock the bootloader, which will then allow custom ROMs and things alike.
I say wait it out and see how everything is coming along, maybe the Evo 3D will ship with an unlocked bootloader. If it does, I say go with that one.

Re: can HTC sensation be rooted ?
I have used the Super Tool v3 to root my Sensation XE. Works like a dream. Very easy- just follow the intructions. Permanent Root too. My phone seems to run better with some of the apps removed that I don't use (Stocks for example). Don't forget to do a NANDROIOD back up if you start playing around with different ROMS. My experience of trialling different ROMs was I actually found I preferred the stock rom so was glad I could retrieve it when I wanted to.
