Hey everyone! Just got my shipment notification so I figured I would share in the hopes my info helps ease some troubled minds. I was order number 6130000254XXXX. I had my order confirmation within a minute of pre-orders going live. I haven't gotten actual tracking information yet but I'm hopeful I'll get it soon. Here's the email:


Hi XXX,

Your order has been processed and your Rift is almost on its way! Look for a shipping confirmation email with tracking information soon.

Please keep this email handy for reference. If you have any questions or concerns about your order, please contact Oculus Support.

The only strange thing about all this is that even though my order status page as a guest says "Shipped" the expected shipping date says July 2016 at the bottom of the page. I pray that's just an error otherwise I will be raising hell. Haha.

Cheers, happy gaming.

    @Focux Well that's awesome! I'm just a 26er patiently awaiting anything from Oculus atm, but glad they're starting to roll some Rifts out!

    Yeah I'm really not sure how they're rolling out what ships where. If it provides more context, I live on the west coast of the US in a pretty major tech area. That might provide some level of ease to ship to me.

    I think that July 2016 is what it would be if you ordered now. Mine says the same thing and the CV1 is in my hands.

    The charges seem to be being made in the order of when you received your confirmation email rather than order number.

    I suspect the order number was assigned when the cart was created, but the "time of committed" was when you pressed the "Send Order" button.  I know I got into two carts, one with an early number that I couldn't pay for with the payment system glitch(es).  I then started a new order, got a new, later order number that became my submitted order.

    BTW one of the glitches I found was that I had formatted the CC/date information for my payment differently than expected.  IIRC It was that I needed the two-digit year for the expiration date, not the four digit.  The error message gave no clue to what the problem was, I went through three different rejected cards before playing with the format of the entries.

    I'm a 24 AND on the west coast of USA, hopefully the gods are smiling on me too?

    Thanks for clearing that up. It definitely seemed odd.

    At the moment it seems to be only America and East/West coast that are being charged, so yours could well be imminent :)

    So basically they shipped like 5 or 6 Rift so far? Maybe there is only one employee processing shipping, if you take into account his or her lunch break, afternoon break, bathroom breaks, I guess that is a pretty efficient employee :smile:

    Not all people are going to go on forums to report  that their order has been charged or shipped :smile:

    Impossible to count how many. There have been a few dozen on Reddit, but only a small fraction of people who've pre-ordered use reddit and not everyone who uses it will have posted.

    As much as I would love for them to be going in just random order. Whoever gets lucky gets theirs sooner. That's not fair. And I doubt that is what is happening too for the record.  :D It would be nice if they were just way ahead of their estimated ship date. Though I doubt they would be 4 months ahead in a span of a few days.  :'( I am curious though. When you pre ordered your Rift, did it tell you that your ship date was in July or were you expecting it to ship in March/April?
  • yahknow1yahknow1 Posts: 83
    Mine said estimate = March and like i posted previously:

    Order 24xxxx
    Confirmation at 8:03PST
    1-3 week letter on March 24

    I'm in the 6s myself with an estimated ship of July. I can tell ya right now if I get a shipment confirmation I am going to run around in circles screaming my head off.  :p

    My original estimate was in March when I placed my order. I had my order in within 30 seconds of pre-orders going live and my confirmation email at 8:01am PST.

    The shipments certainly aren't random but the order number seems to be. I would say it more closely correlates with when the order confirmation came in.

    Yeah guys I know I was just kidding but it's safe to assume that they are not going out by the thousands....

    Well until they actually inform us of how many units were sold we can't say for certain. With the order numbers having gone up by the tens of thousands it's very possible that they're shipping more than a few hundred each day. I think once things get rolling the expected times for people may actually go down. It's a very real possibility.
