 As one of our Rift users affected by the recent Oculus software downtime, we're reaching out today with details on the Oculus Store credit mentioned in follow-up last week.

We sincerely apologize for the service disruption, and have added $15 USD store credits (or local currency equivalent) to your Oculus Account in appreciation of your understanding. Please review this page for more info about using Oculus Store credits.

If the credit provided is a different currency than what you see in the Oculus Store, please contact Oculus Support for further assistance.

If you're still experiencing issues connecting to the Oculus software, please click here to review our support article.

Thanks again for being a part of the Oculus community — we look forward to seeing you back in VR soon.

- The Oculus Team


All of you still waiting should be receiving them between now and Friday.

    Just after checking my credit on the Oculus web site, I flipped over to the Experiences page and saw Duck Season is on sale. So, there's $17 of my $20 (Canadian dollars) credit spent!

    Just saw that Sairento is also on a Daily Deal for a good price! Maybe I should have spent my credit on that. I NEED ANOTHER $15 CREDIT!!!

    Going to wait until the 20th before I spend it I think, unless one of these Daily Deals tickles my fancy. It's the Rift's 2 year anniversary so it wouldn't surprise me if they have a sale on.

    Good job you didn't say "fine price". That's what the Merchant in Resident Evil 4 used to say. I thought he was a dodgy fucker and shot him in the face the first time I played the game lololol :D

    I love Dead Secret, played through it multiple times. I found that "The Invisible Hours" was a great follow-up to that style of play. Also, Wilson's Heart and Edge of Nowhere.

    eve valkyrie and sprint vector are available as a duo bundle, as i have valkyrie already (free with my rift) price was reduced to £10.99. so my £11 credit went on that :)
    Now what to spend my penny on...

    There are many others like it, but this is mine.

    $20 Canadian - woohoo!!!

    Was expecting $15 Canadian - didn't expect them to match the USD (roughly).

    Thanks for letting us know @snowdog - I didn't realize it was the 2 year anniversary (and wouldn't have) and likely would not have waited if I didn't know!!! :)

    I think I am going to wait for sure - looking at the following titles now:

    Obduction
    Lone Echo
    Superhot VR
    Duck Season
    Sairento
    Elite Dangerous

    I am leaning toward Obduction to be honest because it looks like a long and involved game and even though I have seen some videos that point out some negatives with the experience I think it is a game that I would enjoy in VR that I would probably not care for as much on flat screen. Anybody able to really recommend this one to me?

    If not Obduction it will likely be Superhot or Elite (if Elite has a big enough sale).

    No, cancel your plans, and Get Lone Echo, then thank me later :)

    I will agree that Lone Echo is a must have experience, but next on that list should be Superhot imo.

    It's a pretty unique concept that works really well in VR, and it has quite a bit of replayability beyond the initial playthrough (especially if you're a completionist like myself) with the various new gamemodes introduced in the "Forever" update. 

    The only gamemode that I don't like is the real time speed run - it just ruins the concept of the game by removing the planning part and replacing it with the need to perform hectic jerk off like hand movements to fast forward time as rapidly as possible. Game time speed run on the other hand is cool, and requires you to think about how to economize your movements.

    Well, enough ramblings from me.. but do buy it at some time :smiley:

    I just spent a little over 2 hours in Lone Echo after completing my 3-sensor setup. This is quite the experience... I can't believe I waited so long. Saturn is my favorite planet, and being able experience it like this is somewhat of a dream.

    Best way I've spent a $15 credit ever!

    I got Super Hot VR (I already have lone Echo) for 7.99 GBP :) pretty happy with that. It was with a duo deal with Arizona sunshine but I already had that so it reduced the package. Thanks Oculus.

    I just knew you'd like it Zenbane.  It is a proper VR experience and so so immersive.
    Definitely the best game I've bought for my Rift so far!

    I finished it in 3 days, two of them being 8 hour straight sessions! :-)

    I'm leaning towards Super Hot for my credit splurge!

    Any suggestions, or thought on playability / longevity welcome.

    SuperHot is fantastic, you have to be pretty zen to play it, me and my mates had so much fun pretending to be jujitsu masters and zen gurus while playing it, pretending to be the chose ones, it requires strategy as well as dexterity. It hell of a lot of fun, you can replay it numerous times with different techniques etc, plus I think there is an expansion pack coming.
