Oculus Has Bungled The Launch Of The Rift

Is the honeymoon for the Rift already over? Apparently many have no idea when they will be getting their units, but the company seems to be dousing the flames with free shipping for some orders.

The Oculus subreddit has been filled with threads by redditors furious that their pre-orders have not been fulfilled yet and about the lack of communication from Oculus on the situation. Palmer eventually responded to a couple of these threads, stating that he "won't give in-depth updates on any situation without knowing it is solid, true, and finalized," and that "many thousands of Rifts (are) out there" in consumers' hands. While all the details aren't clear, there are glaring problems with the Oculus Rift launch.
