I am looking at buying a rift. Is now a good time to buy?

Im from australia and hopeful to get it before christmas. Is there a shipping delay at the moment?

Also is there any anticipated sale for christmas on the rift?

Anything else I should be aware of?

Thanks for your advice.

    Black Friday in the USA the Rift will be on sale for $ 350 @best buy , I don't know if that will extend to Australia and sorry I don't know about shipping delays

    Oculus have just recently cut the price so apart from possible Black Friday deals you're unlikely to find it cheaper.

    Now is a great time to buy one, and there should be some discounted games on both Steam and the Oculus Store next month during inevitable Christmas Sales.

    Best time to buy was day 1 of pre-orders, that way you get more time with the Rift (approximately 18 months more than buying now).

    Second best time to buy was day 1 of the price drop.

    Now is ok because the Rift is an amazing piece of tech and the best example of this tech being sold right now.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Ha, would have loved to buy day 1 but didnt have the pc for it.

    I just went through otdering and it is stating no cost is the estimate for shipping. 

    Does shipping get added on later? Or is it free?

    A bit strange being asked to commit to the purchase with no idea what the total is.

    Shipping is to Australia.

    I think shipping is free :D

    You might want to get it from a brick and mortar shop rather than from Oculus if there are any in Oz selling them. That way if you have any problems with it you can just pop in and get a replacement straight away without having to go through Oculus Support and waiting for a week or so to get another one.

    unfortunately noone sells the Rift in a shop here in Oz :disappointed:

    Still, shipping is included in the price :smile:

    the shipping is from hong kong :disappointed:

    but you get to track it via the web :smile:

    the website is slow :disappointed:

    but it comes with free froghurt :smile:
