Free Upgrade Apps for users of the Oculus Go to upgrade to the Quest Time Extension since I am on backorder to get my Quest.
Free Upgrade Apps
If you’re a Quest owner and you purchased a paid version of the Oculus Go or Gear VR apps listed below before September 25th, 2019, you may be eligible to upgrade to a Quest version for free. Free upgrades will run until Dec 31st, 2019 and will begin the week of September, 30th 2019.
The Oculus Quest is sold out everywhere and on backorder. I ordered mine on Oculus.com but it says I will not receive it until February. I will miss the December 31st deadline so I won't be able to get the Free Upgrade apps. I just got finished talking to Oculus through the chat and they tell me there is nothing they can do. I told them I met all the requirements and tried to buy one in the store, but they are all sold out, so now I am stuck as I am sure a lot of others are and there should be an exception for people in my situation. She sent me the link here to see if I could convince people and possibly the developers to make the exception. She says it is a developer choice not Oculus. I mentioned that Oculus controls the store and the store knows I bought the games on time and that I bought my Quest online but I am backordered and I should be able to get the apps through the store for when my Oculus gets here after December 31st and still take advantage of the free app upgrades. I was told that was not something Oculus can do. Apps on the Quest are quite a bit more expensive and why I wanted to order it before the December 31st deadline, but like Oculus, I did not know there would be such a huge demand causing me to miss the date even though today is December 17th. Not sure why the store won't just let me get the free upgrades since I met the requirements, but was told that I had to activate my Quest by the December 31st deadline. Seems very unfair to everyone is this same situation and even in the future for others when the successor to the Quest comes out with that new chip and the games will likely cost even more, but you can get the upgrades free like you are supposed to be able to do under this current program.
Please support this if you are in a similar situation or for the future when things like this happen. Thanks
I'm in the same situation....wasn't able to get my Quest until after the deadline. 'Rush' was the main game I was hoping to upgrade from the Go to the Quest. If nothing else, at least offer a discount on purchasing an upgraded game. I know the developers need to recoup/make money on their apps but, at least, give some consideration to the people who purchased the respective Oculus Go app. The overall success of the Oculus Quest during the holidays (resulting in delayed shipments) would be a great reason to, perhaps, extend the deadline for 2-3 months for either free or discounted upgraded apps.
