r>The Oculus Rift started shipping to pre-order customers on March 28. However, due to unexpected part shortages, the pre-orders were delayed between one and two months. The beginning of May saw some Oculus Rift's available at retailers such as Best Buy and Amazon. These were quickly snapped up, Rift orders from Amazon sold out within minutes of appearing online.
Amazon Rift orders were expected to start shipping end of May. VRCircle can confirm orders are now shipping to Amazon customers, and many should receive theirs by Friday, June 3, just in time for the weekend!
New Oculus Rift orders placed at Oculus.com are expected to ship by August.
