    I was going to order the rift s today and everywhere, including your online store is sold out. Is there any word on when more will be available?

    When will the rift S be back in stock ? ....... You can't buy it anywhere right now 
    I put an order in on the 19th this month (Feb) and was supposed to get it the 26th (today) and it still hasn't shipped and that's from Amazon but I go to the official Oculus website and all it says is unavailable and that it's not available in the U.S at this time so how long  production take before retailers start getting product again ? Should I just cancel order ?

    Unfortunately China is still on pause because of the Corona virus. God knows how much longer it will go on for. And when production does resume, there will be a big backlog of orders to get through.

    There are a few Quests and Rifts out there for sale from independent sellers. But some people are asking 50% more than retail. There's also some used Rift S' around if you hunt for them.

    I'm curious as to why you want a Rift S over a Quest. They're great hmds and all, but the Quest can do the job of a Rift S now. And they even use the same controllers. Although the Rift S would be much lighter.

    Probably because they don't know - also due to the Corona virus situation in China, which affects production - these hmds (and Index) are made in China.

    Hmmm, my Spider-Sense just tingled and suddenly I get the feeling that Rift-S days are numbered  :#  ;)

    Been watching the news lately?
    Demand is high and I suspect the Coronavirus is having an affect on shipments getting to retailers.

    I have both the Quest and the Rift S, plus a CV1.

    IMO the Quest is an experiment to what will be a unified HMD that can do both standalone and PC based games.
    Right now the display on the Quest is inferior to the Rift S despite the higher resolution - using the same pentile OLED display as the CV1, the SDE is VERY noticeable.
    The Rift S on the other hand has significantly better SDE and everything is much sharper.

    The 80hz refresh rate on the Rift S is about the minimum, 72Hz on the Quest is too low for fast paced titles - again, I have used them both side by side.

    The Rift S has more cameras and has better inside out tracking than the Quest.

    I think both HMD's days are numbered, we will see Oculus move to one HMD in the next generation, incorporating the best of both HMD's.

    Right now, the Quest is the choice if you know you will play a lot of standalone titles and maybe some PC based ones.
    If your focus is purely on PC based titles, the Rift S is the superior device of the two.

    I have both as well and would definitely agree.

    I'm wondering the same thing. All retailers linked on the Oculus website are out of stock. My husband and I were even at Best Buy a week or so ago and they suggested placing an order for one to be delivered to the store. The employee tried to submit an order for us, then said he couldn't because they were completely out of stock (even other stores).

    Has there been any official word from Oculus? I realize that they may not be able to give a solid date, but maybe a general timeframe (are we talking days, weeks, months, longer)?

    No official timeframe as of now that I'm aware of. I know Valve got hit with serious covid-19 virus-induced delays as a lot of parts for Valve Index come from China. This is just a guess, but I'm wondering if Oculus is experiencing the same issue.

    If I were to hazard a guess, based on historical data with other manufacturers and announcements made after the Christmas rush, I'd say a solid 3 months to get the stock replenished. I was expecting the new batch to be replenished by about end of February, or no later than the second week of March. But with a threat of covid-19's effects on manufacturing on the horizon, an additional month wouldn't be unreasonable.

    I'm not affiliated with the company, btw. I'm just someone who is following industry news, and this is merely my opinion.

    Thanks everyone on the advice. I wanted the S because I have a powerful computer to run it and it is cheaper. Seems a waste to not use the PC after all the time spent building it. I managed to get one practically new from a guy who didn't have a PC capable of running it. Its been great so far, no complaints.

    No shipping date, no option to buy at all on the Oculus website all morning.


  • dburnedburne Posts: 3,183 Valuable Player
    Two things.
    Higher than expected demand - which they expressed shortly after they added in the Oculus Link capability to the Quest along with holiday sales.
    Coronavirus - affecting shipments from China.
    Rift S now hard to get as well.

    Or... Quest 2 coming     B)

    High demand, not enough output usually means a "will be shipped in 6 weeks" message.

    One can only hope   :)

    ^^^Could you imagine a revised Quest with a mini hdmi port added.....and a 2 in 1 cable from oculus to power/ charge and have the mini hdmi to make the quest fully pcvr, oculus could literally kill every other hmd with such a desktop/portable hybrid vr hmd. :open_mouth:

    They stopped taking orders because the backorder date was so far out, and now the coronavirus problems in the supply chain mean that they don’t have any idea when they’ll have more stock.

    I can't see them releasing the Quest 2 any time soon tbh. They've only just released their first one 😯😂😂😂

    - and we're 3 weeks from the arrival of Half-Life: Alyx. Actually new Alyx content will be available for SteamVR Home starting tomorrow. Demand vs. supply probably have never been this challenged before.

    I was surprised to see delay's even before this virus hit. I thought Oculus once said that there wouldn't be any more delays with their VR headsets after what happened with Oculus CV1.

    Hope they get them in the hands of people soon.
