    I should have been more clear: That pic is an official pic from Oculus that they posted on twitter--that is what will be shipped to people. Still, she's purrty.

    lol - yeah I found an article with that pic in it about 10 mins after I posted :blush:

    soooooo close..

    so it turns out I suck at updating forums... haven't got my shipping email yet. very sad about that - especially since @gleamingsands got his.... not too sure about this 1-3 weeks before shipment thing too... going to be very sad if it doesn't ship today :disappointed:

    I took lunch early that day to get a front row seat to the Oculus preorders. I saw the 600.00 and kept going, couldn't even think twice,
    had the Omni preorder, had to make the Oculus preorder. I was really surprised when they didn't charge me at point of purchase.
    The array of people getting their shipments soon would have looked very different if people had known that.

    I woke up 30 mins beforehand and refreshed the store until it let me order one - it was something like 6 minutes after it opened. the website said shipping would be "today" but still haven't seen my email... not going to panic [not going to panic!!]
  • kzintzikzintzi Posts: 54
    AARRGGHH!!!! [rocking man in the corner mumbles repeatedly] still no email, still no email...
  • kzintzikzintzi Posts: 54
    best not to ask - still nothing... waiting impatiently :smile:
  • Sponge101Sponge101 Posts: 428
    Sorry to hear that. For what it's worth, I haven't gotten an email either :'(
  • kzintzikzintzi Posts: 54
    thanks, it only makes me feel a little bit better :tongue:

    I tried the CV1 (and by try, I mean I wore it brefly); and I thought it was really light and comfortable. Would like to have had time to play something on the Rift, but oh well :D

    Lucky. But I've waited so long (as we all have) it doesn't bother me that much anymore to be honest.
  • Sponge101Sponge101 Posts: 428
    Well, I got an email from Oculus but it just basically said sorry for the wait and check back on the 12th :/ Good news is they said their covering shipping and handling <3 Say what you want about Oculus but they know how to treat their customers right.
  • xxann5xxann5 Posts: 593
    Covering the shipping is nice especially for folks in places like Australia. though personally if it was me waiting for my Rift it would be too little too late.
  • Sponge101Sponge101 Posts: 428
    If there's one thing I learned from the first day pre-ordering the Omni is, you know, patience. Really, really, good patience...
  • sutekiBsutekiB Posts: 1,045
    I got the same same email. I appreciate the gesture; thank you Oculus!

    Yeah, international is covered too. Exchange rate is a killer, or so I heard.
  • kzintzikzintzi Posts: 54
    yep... the "free shipping" is saving me about $200 on the price..

    but it's now "8 days till update"
  • edmgedmg Posts: 57
    Free shipping is probably saving about as much as I would have saved if Oculus took account of exchange rate changes since I ordered. So that's OK.
  • kzintzikzintzi Posts: 54
    7 days till update... feeling a lot calmer now, and my HOTAS and pedals are arriving today so I have a new toy to play with and setup while I wait..

    with the addition of the school holidays starting this week, I'm going to get my kids to help me remodel my office to make room for the "Elite Dangerous" chair :smiley:
