I put up my rift for sale and it sold in 10 minutes

Sadly, I have to sell my rift to pay some bills, and because I plan on getting the consumer version later, and it sold for 280 within 10 minutes. What awesome resale value! I enjoyed my rift for a year and only lost 20 bucks in resale. Also, I could have easily held out and possibly sold for even more than "at new" pricing, but I needed the money fast.

The reason I wound up needing money to pay bills is that having my first credit card, I wasn't aware that banks could legally raise the credit card payments at their discretion, so I miscalculated (assuming that the banks were forced by law to operate as decent human beings and that the payments were steady). I wasn't aware that a bank could tell you "hey, use this credit, and the monthly payment will be this amount" , and then they could just double it when they like.

And yet in the back of your mind you're thinking "it sold so fast... I should have asked for more!"
Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes! The dead rising from the grave! Facebook buying the Oculus Rift! Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria!

interesting - I just had a look at the german marketplace and prices there seem to be much lower than just a month ago.
I am still playing with the idea of buying one or two really cheap extra Rifts for multiplayer tests 😄

In November last year one Apple 1 sold for $330,000. Are you sure you did the right thing?

I'll never sell my two DK1's, because they are amazing piece of VR history.

i also sold my DK1 since i have ordered the DK2 that i hope to get sooner rather then later 🙂

sold it for 75% of the new price almost instantly.

im sure i could have gotten allot more for it but im happy with the price i got and a 16 year old boy got the best birthday present ever because of it.

what more does a person want 😄
