VR headsets Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have not yet been released for the public, but already, some potential owners are already experiencing issues.

The good thing is that this is not related to the quality of the headset or the experience of VR. Instead, it is related to the preorder process for both headsets.

Oculus has experienced a sudden and unexpected shortage with the components. How exactly the shortage plays into the creation or delivery of the Oculus Rift is not explained. However, the company did assure fans that they will be updated of the status of delivery come April 12, Engadget reported.

To compensate early adopters, Oculus Rift has already slashed off the shipping fees. These include international preorders. Oculus Rift co-founder Brendan Iribe also confirmed via Twitter that anyone who preordered the Oculus Rift between January 2016 and the end of day Pacific Time of April 1 will have free shipping guaranteed.

Similarly, HTC Vive customers are also currently experiencing some complications for preorders of the VR device. The company has acknowledged the issue via its official HTC Vive blog.

Some buyers of the HTC Vive have experienced auto cancellations because of processing issues. The company is already trying to resolve the issue and reinstate proerders.

HTC has offered a proactive tip for those who have preordered the HTC Vive to check with their financial institutions regarding the transaction. This may be one way to avoid any auto cancellations in the future and hasten the process.

As far as the PlayStation VR is concerned, there haven’t been any announced complications so far. Preorders are already open for the PlayStation VR bundles. This can be the launch bundle at US$400 (approx. AU$524) or the core bundle at US$399 (AU$523).

There is even an update for a potential title on the PlayStation VR. Based on a recent Reddit AMA with Sony San Diego, the studio head Christian Phillips hinted that they are looking at the tech for the PlayStation VR, PlayStation Lifestyle reported. Even though the studio head did not cite a specific title, there was mention that the team has been looking at the development cycle of the VR, so there may be something in the future of VR with the studio.
