A large number of Kickstarter Backers and Pre-Orders consumers have fell victim to deaf ears from OCULUS. OCULUS, could be doing way better than this regarding the updates/status. Will you find yourself going through this for the Touch controllers that will debut later this year?
On a side note:
I think this was a fixed LAUNCH. Even the delivery of the 1st retail pre-order Rift delivered by Palmer himself just looked cooked up/fixed.
