Free Vader games IF you purchase (or activate) an Oculus Quest after 22 October 2019

33
Posted 6th Jan

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Everyone knows that if you buy or activate any Oculus Quest between now and the end of January, you will get free Vader games worth £24.

However, less well known is that IF you purchased or activated your Oculus Quest after 22 October 2019, you can message the Oculus support team and they will add the games to your account! I have confirmed this with them directly. Simply send a message through the following link: support.oculus.com/ and say to them "Dear Oculus, please can you add the Vader games to my account as I recently bought an Oculus Quest". They will ask you to reset the Quest so you have to email them a few times saying that's not needed. But eventually they will fix it for you. Enjoy!

PS I guess if you purchased before 22 October 2019, you might try arguing with them to see if they'll fix it for you anyway?

Great kick in the teeth for early adopters

Great kick in the teeth for early adopters


On the other hand, you have had your quest for longer and possibly benefited in other ways.

Vader Immortal was fun to do once and the training dojo has some replay-ability but this is not the VR Star Wars game you are looking for. It is very much an experience rather than a game.

As an aside, I've been massively impressed by Oculus customer support when I've contacted them. Quick and it feels like there is a very helpful actual native English speaking human on the other end. I guess it can't last but even so...

Got mine early doors. Sent them a ticket to see if they'll be nice to us early adopters!

I got my quest second hand. I guess this isn't going to help me get the games?

Thanks OP for the heads up. Given it a try, let's see what happens.

Since when did an early adopter not expect latecomers to benefit from freebies and incentives?

It’s the price of being a trailblazer

Got mine at the beginning of October...messaged them so will see what happens.
Got the Vader games with mine. Good for free but would not have paid for them. Very little to do. Dojo is cool for the first time in the first one and facing Darth Vader for the first time close up is cool.
I love Star Wars but I only played the first one and half the second. Not that fussed to continue.
Maybe £10 for all 3 if you are a big fan. Certainly not £10 each. For free, though I can’t complain.

Thanks for that. Yes, I'll give it a go. I'm just asking the Ebay seller when he bought it, but he's confirmed he hasn't taken the offer already
Wish I could find one to buy
Is it just for Quest? Asking as I bought a Rift S recently but no worries if it is
Got mine just before xmas from amazon £481, and it had vader games pre ready to install.

Great story. Thanks for sharing!
Tbh, I got my Quest (64gb) for £315 off eBay, so if I don't get the Vader games I won't feel hard-done-by. Also, the first of the three has mysteriously ( ) found itself installed under 'Unknown Sources' on my device... Hmm, odd that
Bought mine start of nov and opened i/setup to make sure it worked ready for Xmas day. Purchased episode 1 after Xmas - and they’ve just reimbursed me after emailing them this am, and added all 3 to my accounts - fab/ta - heat from me!!
got mine in july so asking if I can have the game for free - lets see what happens.
UPDATE. Just been emailed to say that they have added the 3 games to my account. I purchased mine on 21st Nov 19. Excellent response from Oculus customer services. Thanks again OP. Didn't think to try until your post but as you pointed out - if you don't ask, you don't get.
Managed to use their live chat and get the games added. I bought my quest on 9th November and missed out on the original offer which was somewhat annoying.

apparently the 9th November was within their device activation grace period.

Thank you very much!

This worked for me also after I was resigned to not being eligible for this deal. I also spoke with live chat and they added the games to my library instantly!

What did you expect from buying early instead of waiting for deals and offers?
I got my Quest 2 Oct. They would not give me the games.

Same here. Worth a try anyway
I'm within grasping distance. The guy I bought the Quest from says he bought it around the 10th November but he can't find the receipt and Oculus won't go ahead without the proof of purchase ... Any ideas? Could I just use someone else's receipt? Is that too naughty?

I was asked for serial number and email id, no proof of purchase.

PS: Thanks OP. If not for this post, I would've missed out on the freebies.

Cheers for that. I'm sure you're right now I think about it. I don't think I ought to ask a stranger from eBay to hand over his account, though. Chances are he bought stuff and/or owns a Rift, etc etc.
Thanks OP otherwise wouldn’t have known about this! Lol my purchase date was 23rd Oct one day in wow lol , they gave the games! But be aware the agent first said she can’t as the date was 9th nov or something, but I corrected her due to the OP post and she checked and realised I was right.

Thanks again OP
£499 is just crazy... price of a new pc

£499 is just crazy... price of a new pc


The £399 64GB is a good price point, considering you're getting almost PC like VR in a standalone headset that can also double as a PC VR headset. Plus you'll be hard pressed to get a good VR ready PC for £499.

It's new tech and as the Rift S is around the same price, it's pretty impressive considering the flexibility. I've been using mine a lot since I got it and can thouroughly recommend it.

Yeah I understand that perspective, and for most that is valid and true.

I my case, with a family, £500 for a single use product with a singular entertainment value. It's still a bit high for me. £500 gets a low to mid pc with allot more utility.

Yeah, I don't have money to burn either, hence trading stuff in at CEX and getting a second hand one . But equally, the cost will be down to how much use you will get out of it and I don't think it's a 'single use' product, in so much as any console or games platform is, especially as it now has the link to make it a proper PC VR headset as well as a standalone one.

I recommend Moss, Pistol Whip, The Climb, Vacation Simulator and Superhot VR to name a few. It really depends on what you class as 'top shelf AAA' though as it's a very different platform to other games platforms and games like Superhot, which is a PC indie game, really come into their own on VR.
