And how was that a surprise given their communciation prior to the closing, and their track record with the 4K ?
This is not Apple, not Oculus, it is a kind of a garage company with essentially a couple of techies taking on the VR next gen headset, and I will not at all be surprised if they completely f*ck up the controllers, actually I will be rather surprised, if they don‘t. I still backed even those controllers, while I was aware that I was not even seeing any reasonable chance that they would really succeed - I got carried away a bit.
A high res, high fov hmd, that is what I considered a reasonable hope (not expectation, there is fair chance of failure) from the facts I gathered about them during the Kickstarter campaign, especially the hands-on from some youtubers. And finally from my own hands-on experience. From everything else, the stretch goals, the presentation, the shaky amateur video clips, it screamed stay away from this company right from the first to the last day.
Perhaps you will understand my surprise at people blaming Pimax for acting like they have consistently acted all way through - complete amateurs, who still seem to have managed to put together a promising piece of hardware and have good intentions, albeit working in a chaotic, improvised fashion. I do not expect them to change character over night, I just hope they will carry on doing what seemed to have been a surprisingly successful endeavour so far.
