    Considering that orders that stay stuck at 'Ready' is one of the more common gripes around here, perhaps the question should be rephrased? ;)

    Same boat here, with order number 049xxx and received 'Your Oculus Order is About to Ship' email yesterday....but still in Ready status.
    It would be nice for it to turn up before weekend, but I don't expect it will...

    I would be surprised if it even goes to "processing" by the weekend.

    Ahh... err, I guess I'm well beyond 'Ready' then.
    The devkit I ordered rocked up at the end of May.

    I finally got my rift! (i'm in melbourne). Been waiting since October 2012, I feel like a much calmer person now :P

    First impressions - it rocks! The screen door effect is noticeable, but doesn't bother me too much or diminish the fun (although better resolution would be pretty sweet!)

    So far I tried tuscany, roller coaster, alone in the rift, and some Japanese cartoon "porn" game (although it's not actually porn, unless I'm meant to interact with the characters, which I couldn't work out how to do).

    Tuscany is my favorite so far, followed by roller coaster. I thought I'd like the space games best, since I'm a space nerd, but the "blackness" isn't convincing (yes, I tried playing with contrast and brightness). Also, I didn't get a sense of scale in "alone in the rift" - the earth looked like a big ball infront of me, but didn't feel like the size of a planet. Maybe that's just me.

    So, in my experience, games that are bright and full of light (like Tuscany) work much better than dark backgrounds. Does anyone else find that? I'm guessing that's just a personal thing

    Anyways, I can't wait to start one of the project I have lined up for the rift, I'll make something bright and cheery so the missus can enjoy it (she hates horror)

    Any one based in Brisbane there is a meetup scheduled for August 4. http://www.meetup.com/Game-Technology-Brisbane/events/126359082/ . Dealing specificly with the rift and programing challenges. There will be at least one rift there, and with this new "processing" frenzy that seems to be rolling through OZ there may be a number on hand to check out various demos etc.

    There are some fairly talented folks there, i encourage any one interested and in the area to attend.

  • People who are receiving theirs today.. Does it still say processing on your /sales? and also how many days did it take from processing to actually having the oculus at your front door? :P
  • arcanearcane Posts: 13

    I'd like to know this as too, Mine's a 044xxx order from January. I got my email on the 9th (Processing). I'm over in Perth, so i'm expecting it later than everyone else. For those who have received theirs, what method was used to ship it|?

    EDIT: Never mind, just got it. Sent via EMS - Hong Kong Post. Sent 12/07/13. Received today 15/07/13 @ 2.30pm
