    So, who pre-ordered a Oculus Touch? - Must admit that I was a bit undecided if I even needed one, but as it won't be turning up to some time in December :rolleyes:, pulled the trigger as a Xmas present from the family, as they always complain that they never know what to buy me :).

    I also ordered one, although I still don't have any particular game in mind that I would like to try. But I have to check out the gain in immersion, because this is also my main motivation for building a motion platform.

    The touch software became available this morning, so you can install stuff now. I am in Launceston today but left Medium downloading this morning so I can play tonight.

    Same @SilentChill - Missus pretty much hates the Sim. They just don't understand. I've thought about getting rid of it a few times, but who wants a 43 year old woman these days?!?! :p:p

    Touch shipped overnight. Merry Christmas to me! :D :cheers

    Can anyone recall which games were supposed to be bundled with the Touch?
    I can't find them on my account anywhere.

    My Touch arrived this morning - under the tree it goes - really not so bad, plenty of other projects (including some sim related ones) to keep me busy :).
