Received my April 12th update.


Early-to-mid May for an 8:06 purchase (US) with a March estimate and the 1 to 3 weeks E-mail on 03/24 :(

Guess the E-mail meant 1 to 3 months :(

    So much for being early adopters lol 

    Dear Oculus support team " INCOMIING "
  • Mine says 5/9 - 5/19, I had mine purchased within the first 10 minutes. Disappointing. My Vive is coming in April sometime. Hopefully there's some better games in May.

    I was late to the party and mine was a July estimate. updated to 7-18-16 to 7-28-16. Sorry to hear that the most die hard guys are getting hit the hardest.

    30x order in the UK gives me 6/13/2016 - 6/23/2016, May was the shipping estimate when I ordered.

    Not the end of the world, but I won't be too impressed if it ends up being any later than that.

    saw the update and it says estimated ship date 7/18-7/28. I just ordered a HTC vive and will come around May. so i'll just have to enjoy htc vive for about 2 month before rift show up.

    Wow!

    Do they even explain why past their BS "component shortage"?

    I wonder if they found a major flaw and are trying to make it better (lens flare?), though a Month doesn't buy much time.

    Suddenly I can forgive HTC's slight f-up at launch. I wonder how longer delayed touch will be now too?

    I was thinking of cancelling Vive and waiting gen 1 out after having enough BS from both sides (about launch) but this puts it into perspective. Oculus clearly are not able to perform. Bad investment.

    Order created approximately 25 minutes since pre-order went live. Group 29. Estimated shipping date May 16 to 26. Man, seriously the only joke bigger than this in electronics/entertainment history is probably Duke Nukem Forever.
  • Mine got updated to the following:

    Ok now, calm down. That may be pushing it a bit too much.

    I'm a Kickstarter backer, and my shipping just got updated to August!!!  So do i win a prize for going from March delivery to August? (5 month delay).  :(  I really would have just preordered if I knew this earlier.

    Edit:  It looks like TheTwistgibber has confirmed that KS backers will continue to be distributed via an alternative allocation and will be updated so their order history shows TBD again.

    I haven't gotten the email yet but my order page updated with the dates. 5/23/2016 - 6/2/2016 (originally April estimate, group 27). The really annoying thing is, I have two friends who managed to get their orders in before the official start, because I gave them the link, but for me the link didn't work, and then I had payment problems (though my bank said everything was fine), so my friends already have their Rifts and mine isn't coming for more than another month. One of them already finished Chronos, which was the #1 game I wanted to play!

    Don't trust these estimates! I had a 4/18/2016 - 4/28/2016 estimated shipping date, but also just received an email that my Rift has shipped and is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. There's still hope!

    That is only a week difference. Some people were pushed back 2 months.

    Try 5 months in my case.
