I can't buy stuff directly from you because I don't live in one of the lucky shipping countries, so you guys won't even accept my credit card to ship it to a forwarder, or just a friend that happens to be traveling to one of the selected countries. I bought my Rift on Amazon and Touch on Best Buy during a personal trip to the US last year.

My only alternative to getting the extra sensor is for you guys to have it available on Amazon so I can send it to a friend, a forwarder, or by using Grabr. Even if I traveled to the US myself I couldn't get it just because my billing address country wouldn't match with the shipping address!

    I know this isn't really an answer for you, but I was considering getting a 3rd sensor when the price drops happened.  Since the sensor is only $60 now and touch is $100, I think I'm going to order another set of touch controllers since that would actually put them in the range of a wireless xbox 360 controller.  ($40 for the touch, $60 for the sensor that comes in the set)  That way, I have an inexpensive spare set of touch controllers that I would just use the sensor from and I'd buy a usb 2.0 extension wire elsewhere.  As long as Amazon or Best Buy sends to you, at least that's one way you could get access to a sensor.

    haha wow @Zequez, you're like literally me, i bought my rift at bestbuy when in the states for holiday as well since my country lost the lottery game to be in the list as well, but i had to buy the touch through amazon via a third party proxy address though. I too am waiting for them to put it on amazon

    This ^^^

    That's what I'm going to be doing during the next few weeks. Then you'll have a spare couple of Touch controllers just in case something happens to your current ones. The third sensor is overpriced imo, they're just glorified web cams and a USB 2.0 extension cable...for $59/£59.  :o
