    what's the wait time like atm, been holding off on dk2 due to all delays (and lack of funds) but is it getting close to about a month for shipment yet?

    Just read the posts on this page.
    You'll see its up into the 10-11 weeks at the moment. :|

    Rubbish, the order processing is now well into the long tail. Unless orders picked up recently, the production rate should have fulfilled the backorder so there should be stock available immediately upon order. That is unless there is some logistics delay in the batching of deliveries to regional dispatch areas.

    Sure they processed the initial peak ordering load every well. Unless they reduced processing
    capabilities the backlog should/would/has/for sure/maybe being eaten up. Delays only in goods
    from factory to regional distribution hubs. Nothing to be be sad about. Just logical logistics really.

    That's all it's ever been.

    You're going to get it earlier if you order it now rather than later. If you can spare it, why wait? If you can't, why ask?

    Rubbish? Ive been waiting since Aug1, no update yet.
    Perhaps new orders may be lucky enough to get in same batch to Oceania, but if not then this is the reality of the current wait list for Aus, NZ.
    The tracker page even verifies that .

    I read that the oceania batch is processed with NA and then forwarded on.
    Does that sound correct from the last round?

    Im just curious as it sounds like the NA batch is currently waiting also.


    Would be great to at least get estimates of batch times


    Patience :|

    Pretty sure the US is going to get more before we get our next lot. Also early August here but as US in mid July I think we got some waiting to do. EU storming ahead though.

    I'm sure I had a reason for asking a question or I wouldn't have asked it...but...
    because I want to keep up to speed while I'm saving up. when I ordered dk1 last year I had to wait 12 weeks (not complaining) and then by the time I got mine production got sped up and the wait was like a week or two, so was wanting to see if it was at that stage yet in reference for the future when I will have the money for it.

    I ordered Aug 11th when the estimate was for September, but I hadnt read up enough to realise that their estimates were way way off.

    I'm now hopeful that I may make it into the next batch.. whenever that is.

    Unless you're a dev and NEED to test your work, cancel your order and wait for CV1. Trust me. As it stands, the DK2 is not a viable gaming device. Way too low res and the SDE is so in your face it's ridiculous. I don't understand how people can game with it on, there is absolutely no sense of presence and everything just looks fake. To add context, I'm a VR fan and can't wait for the version with no SDE and high resolution per eye, I'm just warning people not to expect too much because they WILL be disappointed unless they have really low standards.

    People simply ought to go into this with realistic expectations. Lots of people really enjoy their DK2s and actually have a lot of fun.

    It isn't perfect. There are some bugs. Not everyone has fixed up their apps to work in direct mode. Not all apps support it yet. At the time it was designed, it used the best display available and gosh, a higher resolution version came available over the summer for Crescent Bay to be demoed with. Who would have thought that could possibly happen with a development kit?

    But anyone who is tempted to cancel just because one guy is upset that the resolution doesn't meet his expectations possibly should go ahead and cancel. It is a dev kit. It is not a consumer product. But it is the best you can get right now without spending tens of thousands of dollars.

    People should make up their own minds.

    I'm not "upset that the resolution doesn't meet my expectations", I'm giving other people the chance to lower theirs. There are a lot of people in this world and the chances are high that at least a few of them are like me, and I'm sure they would appreciate the heads-up. Yet another patronising post from someone who makes a real habit of them.

    The difference DK2 to CV1 being? Just a resolution upgrade? 1920x1080 -> 2500x1440 25% more horiz, 40% more vert.
    The DK2 could well be viable for those without sli 980s and 500usd motherboards plus the damn chip which can not be
    hyperthreaded anyway (so might as well be a i5).

    I'm not sure, but I hope so. A new NA batch has just arrived and they're starting to receive their emails now.

    Otherwise, maybe we'll have an update next week?

    Yeah good luck with that, Europe are whining about NA getting their's before them. And still no word from oculus on what is going on with shipping.

    Either way..good news since that is one turn in the cycle EU -> NA -> ?
    So either Asia or Oceania will follow (if thats how it works)

    Looking at the tracking page, its obvious NA just processed a huge batch. But what is interesting is Asia also did a few recent ones.
    So Im guessing Oceania should be pretty soon. At least hopefully for Aug customers to catch up.
