The Oculus VR Kickstarter campaign raised $10 million from backers in 2012. That means there should be quite a backlog for Oculus to fill before it starts getting to preorder customers. Palmer Luckey, founder of Oculus VR, also tweeted.
Rifts are finally shipping to both preorders and Kickstarter backers! Getting ready to flood our servers with Rifters.
