Oculus has sold through its first week of Quest pre-orders

You might have to wait an extra week for your Quest

Recently, Oculus Rift S and Oculus Quest pre-orders opened on 30 April, giving you a chance to secure Oculus' VR headsets in time for their release on 21 May.

But, as noticed by UploadVR, it looks like it's taken just four days for the Facebook-owned Oculus to sell through the first-week allocation of the Oculus Quest.

Currently, if you pre-order directly from the Oculus Store in the US, your shipping estimate is now 29 May, pushed back from the initial 21 May listing.

It's not known how many units were set aside for that first week, however, so it's not clear what this means for actual sales numbers - but these are hopefully positive signs.

It's not all bad news if you're in a rush for an Oculus Quest, however. Other retailers are still able to ship on, or near the 21 May release date. Amazon, for example, still lists the Quest without any delays and with its pre-order price guarantee.


We've already reviewed the Oculus Quest, awarding it 4.5/5 and stating: "The Oculus Quest is a truly great standalone VR headset. Oculus has built on all the good work it did with the Go and delivered something as immersive as the Rift, but in a wire-free package that might give it more mass appeal."

So, if you don't fancy waiting around for your Oculus Quest, it looks like Amazon is a good alternative.
