It looks like Oculus is finally getting their act together by confirming that Oculus Rift orders will ship in two to four business days.
The HTC Vive has had the jump on the Rift by managing to ship out their VR headsets within a few days for a while but Oculus has now caught up. Recent stats from Steam show that the Vive has a much larger user base already which is likely due to the shipping problems. Oculus has apologised for the delays:
We want to apologize for the delays in getting Rifts to doorsteps. We appreciate that without your support, VR wouldn’t be where it is today. Thank you for your patience over the past few months.
In other news, according to Oculus, the Touch controllers are on schedule for release although we still have no idea when that is or how much they will cost. Oculus Connect take place on 5 October so perhaps that’s when they’ll reveal the big news.
