    i wouldn't mind getting these but its alot to spend to use google earth VR when it works with them. My room is literally 2.2m x 1.8m and only has my sim in. Are there games worth playing with them as i have no room space. im happy to venture out with various games that you dont need to move. Ideally games that im just sat in my racing seat.

    VR with tracked controllers is a whole other type of gaming experience, particularly when combined with room scale play spaces. But best to try it first if your main interest is simulation or seated gaming, as Touch may not be for you.

    I suppose it's quite pointless sat in a seat. Might as well use joysticks. I would like to have room space but I wouldn't want to buy another pc for the main room

    OMG OMG OMG. Got to a part in Arizona Sunshine where you have to use a torch in one hand, pistol in other in a pitch black abandoned mine. Talk about immersion!! Thankfully I was in a mine so no one could hear me whimpering like a girl. *lift headset, room full of people*

    Crap......

    Yes, that's the reason why I also canceled my pre-order. But now it seems that Oculus Touch also becomes interesting for folks sitting in rigs:

    Maybe it's time for a plugin request?

    Just got my touch controllers, all I have to say is... SUPER HOT...SUPER HOT...SUPER HOT...:D
    It is a whole new game!
    I preordered in amazon, anyone knows what happen with the preorder bundle? It is only for the people that had ordered from Oculus directly?

    This is from the then CEO, "VR Sports and The Unspoken will be bundled with all Touch pre-orders, including those from retailers like Amazon and Best Buy": https://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/com..._vp_of_product_i_dont_want_to_eat_my/d8m63f2/

    Just setup Touch - nice and works fine with the Oculus hosted applications using the 'experimental' 360 setup. I although was having some tracking issues if I used Steam software and their VR app. So far I think it is just part of the evolutionary process to get were we need to be in the future - my sim still rules VR for me.

    Plenty of people have some tracking issues, which Oculus is aware of and is working on.

    Got the mail with the codes for unspoken and vr sports, still trying to get dead and buried, that has to be activated once you finish the full oculus+touch setup but nothing happens and looks like to be an oculus problem that much people is having, just sent a ticket about it.
    Also having some problems with tracking on steamvr, I just got buried anytime I retry to setup.

    Download and install Advanced Settings, among many useful SteamVR features it lets you easily reset the floor height: https://github.com/matzman666/OpenVR-AdvancedSettings/releases

    That will help make tracking more robust.

    Did it run fine all the time for you? I want to buy it., but I read several people having crashes and slows downs and lost of tracking.
