Oculus Rift Sales Withdrawn in China Due to “Extreme Reseller Purchases"

Gamingbolt: "Oculus Rift won’t be sold in China as the company has banned sales in the country due to “extreme reseller purchases” and the fear that will diminish the global supply for real developers.
Responding to a user on Reddit, the company said that, “We’re slightly behind in manufacturing and there’s currently a high chance that some developers with estimated shipping in July may not have their DK2s shipped until August."

China will just make a rip-off that is really just a 16-bit console emulator, housed inside a wearable LCD mask. :o

Wait...that's actually not a bad idea. -_-

Good!! China is notorious for dirty retail tricks. They sell counterfeit items, rip off company's IP's, and have pretty much destroyed Ebay. I'm glad to see somebody standing up to their BS!

Funny...maybe if greedy and unscrupulous American businesses didn't exploit cheap Chinese labor and other 3rd world countries economies, they wouldn't need to sell you the knock-offs so many Americans like to have other poeple think they can afford.

Just my two cents on the matter.

I'm willing to pay a little more if that is what is necessary to bring the jobs back here and not use cheap labor.

But let's be real. It is the greedy Chinese unscrupulous business people who are charging regular price for counterfeit merchandise. They aren't giving that money to the "cheap labor" and taking care of their own. As a matter of fact, judging by their business practices, they are most likely using the very same cheap labor to make their knockoff faulty products.

You can't blame American companies for going out of the country to make their products when our own country is so unfriendly towards business. That does not give these criminals the right to illegally copy and profit off of other people's ideas. And in the process, rip off the end user.

My two cents.

Good. Maybe that means I'll get my DK2 sooner.
