  • So I took a chance this morning and logged into the Oculus Sales page to quickly check on my order (I was a PayPal order, so hadn't received any confirmation emails yet) Date: Mar 19, 2014 09:56 AM PDT Status: Processing Your order has been checked…
  • (Quote) I feel your pain. I ordered on March 19, 2014 at 09:56am...but based on the fact that I paid the balance via PayPal (so no confirmation email until it actually ships with a tracking number) and also the fact that I live in South Africa; I …
  • ^^ then again, that chip looked like a bargain, in hindsight, compared to http://www.ebay.com/itm/Most-likely-the-Holy-Grail-Jesus-of-Nazareth-N-B-Please-read-description-/261535480532?pt=UK_Antiques_Woodenware_RL&hash=item3ce4babad4 :P
  • This is honestly not the most shocking thing I've seen on eBay tbh...I once found a guy selling a Nik Nak chip (that supposedly resembled the face of Jesus) for $1000000 as well...not a clue how I came across it though, now that I think back :? I e…
  • Happily backed the Stem (3 pack), Omni and KOR-FX Vest...granted I only thought once before doing it :P I also bought into the Nintendo Glove, Jaguar Console and Pioneer LaserActive and those were all fully fledged consumer products that tanked....…
  • (Quote) I was born in 1980 but clearly I was WAY ahead of my time ;) Definitely the earliest adopter of VR for my age :P
  • So much complaining in this thread! :o I'm 34 years old dammit, and have been waiting for VR since the late 70's people! I just placed my order tomorrow, after reading on these forums that Oculus PROMISED I would have a Rift by July 14th and STIL…
  • (Quote) Did I fail to mention that I am the son of a recently deceased King (somewhere in Africa...lets say South) and would like to transfer said $1000000 funds to you for safekeeping? :P ...oh, and ill give back 15% to Oculus...you know - to show …
  • (Quote) ^^ This... I also understand this "5k are expected to be on their way to doorsteps before the end of the month." as meaning that 5000 units will (hopefully) be leaving the factory by July 31st...nothing more. 'expected' (not gua…
  • I placed my pre-order on March 19, 2014 at 09:56 AM PDT. ...and guaranteed I will probably STILL only get mine in like September, because I live in South Africa :( My DK1 (based on order number/date) took almost 2 months longer than others around …
  • This email confirms that we've received your pre-order on March 19, 2014 at 09:56 AM PDT. ...and guaranteed I will probably STILL only get mine in like September, because I live in South Africa :( My DK1 (based on order number/date) took almost 2 …
  • Too soon? (Image)
  • (Quote) Too soon? (Image)
  • (Quote) If (and when?) that ever happens, there will be 10 other large companies producing VR headsets/equipment so your 'ad-free' dreams will still be a (Virtual) Reality :)
  • (Quote) I contributed time and money to 'this' and nobody has sold anything of MINE to FB. ...but congrats on your first post!...and all you've contributed so far to the forums! :D
  • (Quote) Yeah I'm actually sorry (and a little embarrassed) by the initial reaction dude. Luckily not EVERYONE feels that this is a bad idea and I think people are a little naive to assume that suddenly their precious DK2 or CK1 is somehow now about…
  • (Quote) I'm not a religious person, but...A(****ing)men to that brother.
  • I swear I will NEVER buy another Gallardo. Someone just told me that Lamborghini is owned by VW and I absolutely HATE what they did with the new Beetle. Yup, no more Lambo's for me...
  • (Quote) Almost identical performance to my 780ti and some 70-80% more expensive. Definitely not a worthwhile investment (for gaming at any rate)
  • (Quote) @ Dreamwriter ^^ This...basically what I was going to reply anyhow. Do you REALLY think if Peter Molyneux or any other reputable developer or development company ie: noteworthy name in 'the business' was prepared to develop games for the R…
  • As someone others have already mentioned; I too am not a developer but that hasn't stopped me from buying DK1 and 2 and of course CV1 when it releases. 'suggesting' to not buy DK2 (if you are not a Developer) probably stems a lot form the backlash t…
  • (Quote) are you saying that the $50 will leave my account in a week or so or the balance? im confused :/ so i shouldnt worry that no actual money has permanently left my account just yet?
  • (Quote) Nope. This is what happened pretty much instantly - got a text on my mobile pretty much right after each other. 2014-03-19 OUTSTANDING CARD AUTHORISATION OCULUS VR, IN20140319xxxxx R 5,165.81- 2014-03-19 AUTHORISATION REVERSAL 271…
  • anyone else had this issue: credit card worked and the money left my account but the transaction was immediately reversed - is that normal? or is that an issue with my bank? Money went out but went straight back in - odd...i have receive an email fr…
  • Excuse me for coming across as 'frustrated/annoyed/pissed off' but I have been reading some 'reviews' (from CES 2014) for the HMZ-T3 and it REALLY annoys me how they can even begin to compare this to the Rift. As an owner of the HMZ-T1 and HMZ-T2 I …
  • A statement by Oculus VR CEO Brendan Iribe: "You have to make a game while you're making the tech," Iribe said. "It's been id's philosophy in the past and it's been John Carmack's philosophy. You gotta eat your own dog food and devel…
  • Granted there may not be anything out there now but I wouldn't be surprised if a major game developer (if not Oculus themselves; together with Carmack) are busy with something along these lines already. I think 'THE Demo' would most likely also have…
  • **** you Yorick! ... (that's for the end part of your game!) ^^ ...and I mean that with the greatest respect :P :lol: Of all the 'scary' games/demos available for the Rift, this one FREAKED me out the most - I frikkin HATE things(Spoiler) (parti…
  • I took my LAN rig and my Rift over to a mates house last night; had a couple of friends who hadn't even seen my Rift yet and of ALL the demos/games I showed off this one was the most talked about! I had guys (and girls) going on the Roller Coaster …
