    Paypal doesn't seem to be any better, that is what I was trying to use.

    My Shipping date seems to be April :eyebrow:

    yeah but its in march so you can put a few quid away end of this month, end of feb.
    you just got to get one if your into gaming and have at least a 970.


    Q2 is a bit of a disapointment but personally I have set my task to start reading more books, have 19pounds in weight to lose and also have my dk2 with sdk 0.6 for assetto till april.


    bet the experience is going to be mind blowing, as the tittles become available its def going to be defacto must have item.

    I wonder how much the touch controllers will be on top of the base cost.

    That's pushing me towards the Vive.

    Nice! Mine finally went through using paypal.

    I've been saving up for two years for this - cashed in my fund the other day - had £599 in it!

    I've pre-ordered one; I can always change my mind before shipping.

    Seems like there is some kind of program being followed if both VIVE and Oculas are shipping Q2 which indicates April?

    If Oculas has been manufacturing since Sep then they should be able to ship like pretty much dirrectly after pre order placement ?


    Must be some over all stratagy being followed for the better of VR? else you would think Facebook would do what ever it takes to get their product out first and establish a clear lead but there must be other concepts in plaining?

    hopefully konos can enable assetto corsa for commerical (dirrect mode) by April, will be a lot of preasure on them in the forum will have to follow

    Yeah, its got to be a content led deadline. After all, the final SDK has only just been shipped to developers.

    that can't be the case because I didn't get mine until 37 minutes past, and they said there is an unlimited amount.


    Yeah, mine said April too.


    Also, well done to rollo - who I think guessed closest in our pricing guesstimate game.

    £530 really is a bit on the high side, but not entirely unexpected. Certainly too much for me, though, so I'll let you virtual reality trailblazers forge ahead and catch you up in a few years' time! :D

    Your Oculus Rift is expected to ship in May 2016. We sent an order confirmation email to: ********
    Order Number: ****************


    Ouch that hurt the wallet a bit. Now to explain to the wife she won't be getting a birthday present tomorrow due to "needs must". Wish me luck!

    :clap:
