I put in a pre-order on march 1, 2016. Now don't blast me because I know there is a shortage of parts for the CV1. But I've been waiting patiently for the consumer version since DK1. Now you can call me a spoiled brat or whatever you feel like, but I feel there is really no communication between the consumers and the Oculus team. I specifically built a PC just for the Oculus Rift period, close to $1,900 on all brand new parts to run the rift without a hiccup. I really want Oculus and just VR to survive in general, but if the way things keep going people are going to get turned off of VR and that really concerns me. That is neither here nor there. My problem I'm having is it is taking almost half a YEAR to maybe get our shipments out if we didn't pre-order the minute it launched..Now I've worked in manufacturing and I understand thing happens and products get delayed but never seen anything delayed but almost a half a year to ship. I mean at least if we had an actual date on when it will ship I would be a little more at ease, but all we get is (TBA when your order ships) 7-25-2016 - 8-4-2016. Mine you pre-orders were started in January. Now having got that off my chest I'm really getting worried and wondering if I should just go ahead and pre-order an HTC vive, because it feels like Oculus is going to be delayed until next year sometime soon. I feel I've been patient enough I just had to say something. Would like to hear some thoughts on this from people who Haven't received your pre-order yet.
