    IMHO, I think that, so long as it is shown as "Not available for store pickup within 450 miles," you should just cut out the middle man, and order directly from Oculus.

    And why is that?

    During this virus situation I would think most people would rather have it delivered to their home rather than go out to a store with idiots still not wearing a mask.

    At the end of the day 99% of the people that want a VR headset don't care where they buy it from. As long as they are not paying above retail, they get a new unit with a warranty, and it's not from a shady retailer they are happy. That's exactly why I provided the information I did.

    Plus Oculus is making their money of the software sales. They want as many people as possible to buy a headset so they can sell more software. The more stores that sell Oculus products the more units they will sell and the more software they will sell. It's a win win for Oculus and people that want to buy a headset

    The thought was that Oculus receives the shipments first, before reshipping to retailers; or that retailers are on a lower rung of the fulfillment supply chain.  If that was the case; it would make sense to order straight from Oculus, under the theory that yoi'd get your quicker.

    Unfortunately that's not how it works. Oculus/Facebook knows that the more stores that sell their products the more opportunities people have to buy their products. There are many places in the US where the only store you can go to to buy electronics is Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart and Best Buy are getting inventory in more often than the Oculus site does. There are inventory tracking websites (Hotstock.io & NowInStock.net) that keep track of store inventory so it's easy to find out. Also, Best Buy and Wal-Mart are two of the biggest sellers of consumer electronics in the country so Oculus would be shooting themselves in the foot if they didn't sell through their website and stores.
