I love my Rift, but come on Oculus, get your s*#t together. Originally the controllers would launch with headset, then it was announced as autumn . Then my pre order was pushed back 2 months. Now it looks like it could be November/December until Touch launches, and that's still dependent on there being enough stock this time. If that happens again, it could be 2017 until I actually see any Touch controllers.

Buy a Vive. It has motion controllers included, shipping NOW and supports Room Scale VR which Oculus does not! Oh, and it also doesn't include spyware.

Its more like "Not coming before December". I saw a Touch controller static display at the local Best Buy store this weekend and the placard read: "Touch - coming Winter 2016".

I cancelled my Rift pre-order and kept my Vive one after Rift said it would be June for my day one hour one pre-order to ship. Best decision I have ever made. After using Vive touch and room scale there is no way I could go back to Rift. Plus the Vive plays all the rift games (which all suck because of no room scale, but hey it can still play them). Oculus ram rodded the old pooch with their entire release. I guess that is what happens when a no-name startup pairs with a social media site to release hardware. Probably the biggest hardware failure since the 3DO :)

Still most likely getting an Oculus. I only want to play mech/racing/flying games with it anyways, and frankly from the demo's touch is way better than vives move.

All these people claiming that vive is superior, clearly you havn't looked at the differences. Especially when it comes to the controllers, Oculus Touch blows Vive controllers out of the water! just watch, enjoy your puny rushed vive hardware, while the real perfected patient customers get the top-notch hardware. Vive is just a rushed cash-in of non-perfected VR.

We'll see how it plays out soon enough, but I wasn't blown away by Touch when I tried it. It's different from the Vive controllers, but it wasn't a game-changing difference.
