I've just got the tracking email (UK).. and despite the original estimate being 13th.. and my order being about 4 seconds after they went live.. Its estimated 14th by Yodel.
Interestingly tracking shows Yodel were informed of the Shipment on the 7th after I was charged, and its been at their hub since yesterday.. so you would assume it could have been on time.. however once I learned it was Yodel ill settle for it arriving in one piece. (Which is increasingly unlikely the longer they have possession of it)
I should have ordered on Amazon. (Its still available Guaranteed delivery 13th on there now with prime)
Yeah, my Yodel order says it'll arrive on the 14th too. Seems a bit off that I could have got it tomorrow by ordering from Amazon (and still could, looking on there today) but buying direct from Oculus means I have to wait an extra day 😞
I live in the midwest States, usually an easy location to ship too..I ordered my Quest 2 barely a couple minutes after the site went live, and the delivery estimate in the order page data still says the 13th by 10pm.. But I still haven't gotten anything, no tracking, no UPS mychoice notice..
Common Oculus, I put in an effort to get an early order, and support says things are supposed to be "first come first serve".. so I really hope they stick to that original estimate. And if not, they should have AT LEAST given us tracking by now.. Without any info it feels like it probably hasn't shipped yet, and that's just silly for a US customer who's probably within the first few thousand orders max.
Heck, for hardware pre-orders on the freaking launch day like this, everyone in the first batch SHOULD get theirs the first or second day, depending on how remotely they live.. Sometimes companies even check how long delivery will take for a customer, and up the shipping rate to a faster speed, just to ensure their package gets there on/nearer to the launch date. But it's starting to seem like Oculus is just sending things out entirely randomly.. Or based on locations.. which is NOT "first come first serve". -_-
I just wish I knew what was going on with my order.. Was really hoping to spend my day off with the Quest 2..
I'm not sure why Oculus thinks it's acceptable to not give us tracking numbers until like the last day.. I think this happened to me before, didn't get a tracking number till the day it arrived..
What I find hilarious is that they clearly shipped to shops everywhere already 1-2 weeks ago - You can literally but them ON STOCK in Shops. I don't even know why I bothered ordering at all - Just walk into a Walmart near you and pick it up ...
... but since they already charged and its "processing for shipment", whatever that means, I am sure it would be a headache to cancel that stuff.
