Oculus - Best Buy May 7th and others.
« on: May 02, 2016, 01:19:40 pm »
"A small number of Rifts will be available for purchase at select Best Buy stores starting May 7 and online from Microsoft and Amazon, starting May 6 at 9 a.m. PST," Oculus' blog post states. "Quantities will be extremely limited while we catch up on Rift pre-orders."

You can, in fact, perhaps wait in line, buy the hardware at retail, and then cancel your pre-order. Oculus is planning on some customers doing exactly that.

"We know that many pre-order customers are still waiting for their Rifts, so we're offering those customers a chance to purchase Rift from retail instead — while keeping their pre-order benefits, like the EVE: Valkyrie Founder’s Pack and priority status for Touch pre-orders," the company explains. "If you’re interested, simply go to your order status and let us know you’ve purchased a Rift at retail, and we’ll cancel your pre-order. Your EVE: Valkyrie entitlement will appear in your order history."


That's BS!

Looks like there might be a chance for Broin to get his before ours ships, lol!

That's wonderful. Better off trying to get one to resell for probably twice the retail price.

Don't believe everything you think.

There's one in Falls Church near me that is doing the demos. Does this mean they will have stock as well? I have work at 10:30, so maybe I can run by at 10 a.m. when they open and buy one IF they have it. It's the only one in the area, though, so I imagine there may be a freaking line just waiting to get in. And I'm afraid I'll be late to work.

Hopefully there's a way to get one from Amazon on Friday, but I have work, so I'm not holding my breath. I really need someone to try to get one for me and I'll pay you back.

I called the one near me. They said they won't have any available to purchase. Hopefully they don't know what they are talking about. I have work anyway, so I'm pretty much screwed for all of these.

No luck with Amazon today.  I didn't set a reminder for 12:00, and by the time I got on at 12:05, they were gone!

I set a reminder, but I was at work. Tried from my phone with absolutely no luck.

Sadly as a manager, I'm unable to buy one.


Furious since 2006.
