    It is interesting that Amazon.de now state that they aren't shipping to my location (UK). I hope that doesn't affect my earlier order with them......
    If you already ordered from Amazon to the uk and they took your money there shouldnt be a problem

    My status (amazon.de order) 
    oculus touch: shipping today
    oculus rift: preparing for dispatch

    Can't understand why they want to ship separately :-?
    The have many warehouses. So the have the oculus in warehouse a and the controller in warehouse b. 

    Correct! Tracking for the touch controllers already has some info:
    Parcel arrived at a carrier facility 
    GIDY, GIDY, FR

    France!
    What?! I think I ordered 2 minutes after you and my status is

    Looks like Oculus ran out of stock somewhere on the 14th.  Sadly this likely means those of us on the afternoon of the 14th onwards are probably going to get the newer package without the xbox controller and remote.  Which just makes the package a little worse value than those who bought a few hours before... 

    Amazon.de is also now showing delivery estimate of 4 - 8th August for delivery to the UK now so probably not worth it (probably also the new package).  But it's coming in at about £412 delivered to the uk if you pay in euros, so if anyone ordered in the last few days from Oculus, might be worth it.

    I got the confirmation email at 9:11 so I actually ordered 1 minute before you  :)

    What is your delivery date? Mine is the 31th July for both the rift and touch

    Oculus shipments in EU have completely stopped for 2 days now, so yes, they are completely out of stock and waiting for new units. Since they expect to have completely cleared their backlog by the second week of august, I would assume they will be getting new units to ship very soon.

    I contacted the amazon.de support to know what's up with the "Sorry we cannot ship your item in your location etc..." and they answered me right now :smile:

    If you log in to the site and look at the bundle, it says in Red letters. Did for me anyway.

    Ha ha, what a story! Finally,despite the last night message from Amazon tracking (see my previous message above), the parcel has just arrived! Yesssss :-)

    The package contains 2 boxes:
    - the Rift + 1 sensor + 1 remote + 1 XBox controller + batteries
    - the Touch controllers + 1 remote + 1 Rock Band VR guitar adapter + batteries

    So, I'll cancel my first order from Oculus now. (mmmh... <geek> first order... Star Wars Trek  </geek>)

    ♫ I have the feeling ♪ that today ♩ will be a good day ♬  :)
     :p 
    Good you got it delivered in the end.

    Dont know why Amazon change their mind so much with where they do and dont deliver to, it was the same last week when I ordered, one minute they dont ship to Austria then later they decided they do! Still its good they are actually getting peoples orders out quick!

    Enjoy!

    Ordered from amazon.de an hour ago, and cancelled my order from oculus out of glee. First they said they'd dispatch it by tomorrow and now it says it wont be arriving before the 7th. No point in ordering from here either. Oh well, at least there are dates on the shipping.

    Yeah I managed to buy it to Belgium whereas now it says that they cant deliver to Belgium... I hope they will not be any problems :(
    I just realised the same. It didn't say anything before I ordered it but now it says "Sorry, we can't deliver this item to Finland" Hope I get it...
    Wouldn't worry, was the same for me and I received it no problems, it was even a day earlier than they said!.

    They did this to me also, I got the Touch on a Saturday and Rift on the following Monday, think they like torturing people by sending the useless part first...

    Cancelled my order and placed with Game.co.uk who are taking pre-orders for 30th July. Hopefully get it 30th if not 31st.
    Im really tempted to do this but they might not have it on the 30th? Argh...this whole situation is so annoying!

    Surely recieve it 31st if not 30th.

    Hey guy!
    For those guys wondering how long i takes to cancel an order on oculus. It took me 15 minutes. I have ordered the bundle on amazon now and it will be delivered on 1-2 August. 

    I wonder if there is a xbox controller inside the oculus package and if the 7 VR games are included, because the rift and touch are shipped as 2 products.
  • MrKaruMrKaru Posts: 315 Poster of the Week
    Just an update for the UK that aren't going with the Amazon.de plan.

    After contacting Game, they seem adamant that the new estimate (the 4th) is the one that'll stick. However, on the Overclockers forums, OCStaff say " I have requested updates earlier today from the distributors, once I've received word on the stock situation I'll update here, although the lack of responses so far is worrying."

    Trying to contact Oculus just leads to the normal copy pasted "normal delivery will resume in 1-2 weeks"

    It does state that the 7 games are included. I think it happens during registration. Can anyone confirm?

    I can confirm, I got the Amazon delivery already and it was the separate boxes with Xbox controller and rift remote and also the 7 free games when you register are automatically available to download in the store.

    The rift remote is pretty handy for videos or navigating the menus etc when your not gaming, the xbox controller will be a spare for the xbox and I will just use my existing one and keep the new one fresh.

    The Oculus Rift and the Oculus Touch are in 2 seperate packages but there are the 7 games: 

    Medium, Quill, Dead and Buried, Robo Recall, Toybox, Luckys Tale and Dragon Front.

    And an Xbox One Wireless Controller, 2 Sensors and a remote.
