Anyone getting their Rifts ahead of schedule?

I know we have a number of posts dedicated to shipping time of Rift pre-orders. I am legitimately interested in knowing if any of you have got your Rifts ahead of the new estimated shipping dates, during that time frame, or afterwards (or still waiting).

I am a US based order and when the delay was announced was given a new estimate of May 23rd - June 2nd (originally was estimated for April)

I've heard a few people say that theirs came early, anyone else that luckey lucky?

    Mine came 2 weeks earlier than the start of my shipping dates, but I am in the UK

    Great to hear @Percy1983 I haven't heard many from the US report getting theirs early - maybe I need to check out Reddit a bit. I'm probably just being impatient, but so close now - it's been a long wait.

    Seen the opposite on the US side. Rifts passing their ship dates. Not sure how wide spread that is, so take it with a grain of salt.

    I think I large batch went to europe so some got ahead of time so guessing the next batches will be US, but there is probably more than distribution centre in the US (I guess).

    My US order was just updated to processing and finally charged today, the 6th. I had a May 2 to May 12 shipping window, so that's about the middle by the time it does ship. Not early, but at least within the window.

    It seems to me in watching the Reddit US thread that most are getting their order shipped in their timeframes. They are currently in the May 2-12th timeframe and are around the 7 minute 56 second time stamp.

    Mine was shipped around a week ahead of the revised schedule. Australia.

    NZ here . what order number were you, and did everything ok with GST etc?

    Did you get a payment notification email before the rift arrived? If so how long between that email and arrival.

    Cheers

    Mine arrived early.  Shipping window 25 Apr - 5 May and it shipped on 23 April, arriving 26 April.

    I haven't gotten anything, no email, no charge, I'm in the May 2nd - May 12th window, so I'd say for the most part they aren't ahead of schedule anymore.  May also just be my location, I live in Kentucky, my allocation is probably with the north or the south either one, or maybe a Mideast, who really knows.

    I know there are people ahead of me who haven't received theirs yet but I have a 5/9-5/19 window and all I can think about is "screw everyone in front of me, PLEASE let it ship May 9th".



    It probably wont ship until the 18th or 19th :(

    Do you mean the original estimate?  Or the revised later estimate?

    Received mine more than 2 weeks early (in Germany). Estimated ship date was 05/15-05/29 but I received it on April 29th. That way Oculus even met their original shipping estimate from 01/06 (April).

    This is highly oversimplified but the theme is overseas you're likely in better shape depending on region and they're ahead of schedule, US falling behind again. I've heard several reports of US orders going a few days to a week behind the newest estimates. I'll find out myself as soon as my order is 5/23-6/2
