£189.99, and it’s apparently shipping on November 23rd.
NOTE: This is the retail release, people who pre-ordered could still get it before hand like the rift.(was meant to anyway.)

    They've possibly had their wrists slapped for jumping the gun and have taken it down to avoid litigation.

    They have it listed on the american touch page, you just can't pre order it from there yet.

    I mean they have it listed under android platform on the uk page, someone changed the page very prematurely.

    It does on the American site.

    Touch ships with an additional Sensor to ensure accurate, robust tracking.

    I have pre-ordered. I am sure the product page will be updated to include the correct details. Price was not  a shock as Game already leaked it.

    I'm going to wait a bit to see what's up before I buy. I've waited this long, no need to jump the gun.

    well least if you order it with amazon you've got time to cancel it without being charged :)

    yeah thats what i was thinking, at least this way, its coming, going through oculus is a bit risky in my case in terms of track record and faied delivery attempt.
    Its all about the preorder from Oculus and lead time to get the damn thing..im actually excited. I have hardly touched the rift because i am waiting for my kinda game and i can feel it coming!!
  • FrozenPeaFrozenPea Posts: 2,535 Valuable Player
    yeah fair enough, I'm hoping if you are a pre-order and get it through Oculus you will receive it quicker than Amazon but we will find out soon  :#

    You also have to factor in the high price of delivery from Oculus. Whether it's considered worth it or whatever is by-the-by, it's a cost you don't get from Amazon and I don't think Oculus will be doing the Rift pre-order crowd any more favours.
    For me, the date is okay, too, as it gives me time to get the funds together selling some older stuff.

    Do the Touch controllers actually need another lighthouse? I guess 2 improves the area coverage but I think it will not be essential. Maybe there wont be an extra included with Touch.

    I've heard a dev say you can use it with 1 camera but you get much better tracking with 2.

    In a 'front facing' setup it helps keep tracking going if one hand blocks another etc
    In the 'opposite top corners' setup like the Vive you can now do roomscale.

    So it all depends on your needs :)

    Don't lie techy, you only get to pre-order the USB 4 after your pre order for the touch has been shipped. Or you can get them off amazon.pl for 5million zloty.
    At any rate, Palmer just popped round for a cup of tea and a scone and told me the real joke is that all the additional sensors do is look pretty. Aparently they only exist to make money and we all have gear vrs with a built in galaxy ace 3.
    Got to love the business model

    Imagine that - positional tracking on Gear VR with the Samsung Galaxy S8   :)
