Order/Shipping to Aus ETA's

Hi just wanted to ask if anyone from Australia has ordered recently and a rough eta between ordering > processing > shipping.

 

I asked via supportchat the technician reacted like I was asking for his first born for some satanic ritual.

 

Ordered Monday, again I said ballpark, not set in stone. Weeks? Months? Years? should i hold out for the Vive 2 or get an oculus? id be spewing if its less then 1 month. id live with 2 (before xmas obviously!)

07/10 12:03am - Got shipping confirmation 

07/10 - 3:34pm "Vive orders are usually shipped and received by our customer within 7-15 days." - Offical statement from my comment i posted prior to online chat

Fingers crossed!

 Er, sorry about that reaction...!

 

As I understand it there should be no undue delays on shipping, but do let us know when it turns up!

Yes I did, as mentioned got it on friday 07/10 with tracking info (just realised). I hope it get it soon though its been a looong week. btw go Support > Contact us > Email (I found helps).

I think they have an old school CMS where orders, processing, invoice are done manually.

Hi Lolo

Re: Order/Shipping to Aus ETA's

baz023, hey mate. Think if you redeem the coupon that comes with the order, you get tilt brush, zombie trainer simulator,

not 100% sure think you also get dota (thought was free anyway), and elite dangerous (I bought that without vr a while ago, gave me a headache).

 

Personally I downloaded the lab, pretty amazing demo

If your keen on VR "video" content I recommend whirlgig (works on all my videos I used on samsung vr as it uses your computers video >>codecs<< so no issues for me.

Virtul Desktop is an improvement on the vanilla one, but its video program only ran 2% of videos.

 

Honestly I am slighly dissapointed by the lack of free/demo content. though its night 2. the Samsung one had some pretty well thought out content, though did buy a few. Image quality obviously denser then gearvr, can still see pixels as expected, but lot less obvious when fully immersed. refresh rate if Virtual Desktop reading is correct its solid 90fps. No headache or major eye strain compared to gearvr (mostly eye strain even low brightness).

 

To be fair did my research knew what to expect, not regretting my purchase by a long shot! amazing product. looking foward to 2 solid days of finding out what games are good to buy and play!

Hey @lolo28, do you mean bundled with the Vive, or available to download? There's loads of excellent free and demo content both on Viveport and Steam. We added a few new free titles to Viveport this week, including Allumette and Discovery VR - and then there's apps like The Body VR and Pearl, both Viveport Developer Awards nominees. :)

 

You can't go wrong with The Lab, btw. Try Destinations, too, which is sort of Valve's companion VR demo app.

Hi Rockjaw, 

I got a "preorder" bundle code with my purchase for steam, now before everyone starts flipping out, if your region is USA its 799+41 postage (840), if its Australia its 817.27 + 201.73 postage (1019 USD). So guess I covered the costs and then some.

Thanks for the advice, trying Allumette, The body VR, but Discovery VR and the Pearl doesnt seem to be on steam.

baz023,

Hey, as mentioned to evannucci, your probably better off asking suport via email. I am almost positive their system is manual input. I would't be surpised if its almost there.. according to fedex the process started 05/10.

03/10/2016 - Ordered
07/10/2016 - 12:03am - Got shipping confirmation
07/10/2016 - 3:34pm email response from support "vive orders usually shipped and received by our cutsomer within 7-15 days"
13/10/2016 - arrived

Hang in there.
