This is a total surprise. 29er, order created somewhere near 25 minute. Latest shipping estimate May 16 - 26. Just got a notification like 3 hours ago saying it's processed. Now waiting for shipping.

Looks like Oculus somehow boosted its production capacity by tenfold. Nice job, boys.

    No, the shipping is standard ground, which usually takes around 2 - 3 days (depending on location). Only the very first few batches were given free air shipping in order to meet the launch date. Hope that makes sense.

    I think he was saying to make sure things like laundry and dishes are done before you get your Rift, because once you have it that's all you'll want to do.  Adults have chores too :)

    glad for you guys , i'm a 29 order with a 16-26 estimate and I've heard nothing.  I created a ticket.

    I leave for a business trip on the 26th and would rather it come before I leave or after I get back. I don't want a $600 package to sit on my steps.

    nothing for me - Australia, 8:14 order, 9/5-19/5.

    seems some AU/NZ orders have moved today though.

    Ha, guess I didn't take that the right way, sorry @Cmndr-Hill plus I was drinking lest night, so that didn't make it any better. But I so rarely do chores if at all, I took it as you were calling me a child. Sorry didn't mean to get so defensive.

    Well then your in luck because a signature is required. UPS will attempt to deliver twice and after that you have to go pick it up from your local distribution center.

    I am in Jersey. I have no idea how they are doing this as some people close to 28minutes on reddit have gotten processing emails

    The only thing which worries me about this, and yes this is me being a bit pessimistic here, is that I'm afraid that all this progress means that next week we will see NO PROGRESS AT ALL in the US while they shift focus to other regions again.  The next week or two would be excruciatingly painful if we see no orders going out in the US during that time.  I really, Really, REALLY hope that is not the case and from here on out we will see all regions receiving Rifts simultaneously.

    I don't really understand how it all works in terms of production but I would have thought that production will be going up and they will be increasing their yield of devices, day by day, week by week...surely?

    You'd hope so at least, especially since the Rift is doing so well and is so popular. 

    Would be interesting if they gave us some sales figures eventually and let us know how many HMD's are in population.

    Same here, 24 minute order in Canada.  Estimated 16-26, but got my processing email yesterday afternoon.  Just hoping my CC payment goes through, and with any luck I might have it before Victoria Day weekend!

    Thank you guys for the congrats!

    Actually I'm located in New Jersey. Oculus is finally moving forward with US shipping, it seems. The Reddit live tracker shows massive processing in the past 48 hours. It doesn't seem to be exactly in chronological order though. If your pre-order was created earlier than mine and it's not processed yet, it should be very soon.

    UK/AU/NZ seem to be way ahead of US. Now the only stagnant region is Asia?

    Now I just hope the shipping part goes faster. Haven't got shipping notification yet...
