    $75 of shipping for that is still a bit extreme though. Seriously, I got an inflatable kayak shipped from the US for about the same cost, and it was a big and heavy (25kg!) package. Anyway, this is nothing that can be changed now. Let's just hope that the process will be much better planned for CV1 (and I'm sure it will be).

    Yes, it's about the price charged being out of proportion to the level of service provided. Plenty of companies work with this every day. It is a solved problem, with many different approaches that are well understood. We aren't talking about a Kickstarter, but a company at the top of their field. It's not too much to expect that they as an organisation will assess this performance and try to do better. And it's our job to tell them how we would like it to improve.

    Anyway, I don't enjoy complaining, I just want to get on with my own projects, and I want Oculus to do well in the future so that we can all enjoy the fruits of that.

    No sign of activity on Reddit (as at 5:50pm AEST). But if we all hope and believe hard enough, tomorrow is going to be our day...

    Hope so. I'd drive almost anywhere to pick it up myself if it were in the country tomorrow...

    "You're receiving this email because your order is about to ship"

    Ordered July 7th.

    Could it be that OVR has FINALY let Australia catch up with the rest of the world?

    ITS HAPPENING.

    June 22nd, Ready!

    I'm not even annoyed about the delays anymore, I just hope that the issues with customs are resolved (I could barely afford the Rift, let alone the extra $100 import cost).

    How long does it normally take to go from READY status to actually showing up at your door?

    Like, for the average recipient?

    If the 29th July is the last order in this batch I missed out by 2 days. At least Australia has got up to date, which is great.

    Us Perth types need to organise a LAN party, although I suspect we could all fit comfortably in Rose Porteous' shoe closet :P
