@xunshu you should read this.
I didn't participate much in this debate and there is too much claims to answer so I will try to focus on facts we know so far.
Maybe it looks like trainwrack but after we calm down the tensions and think about it is not that bad.
(to Pimax devs)
Yes Pimax should prepare this event little bit better especially DCS presentation which superficially preparation and presentation could cause opposite effects. You guys ask ED for cooperation and got positive answer and after that didn't do nothing about it. In DCS claim that after first contact you didn't offer nothing in way to propose how this cooperation should look like. They don't know nothing more about Pimax8K than rest of us mortals.
For CES you should offer to ED, Matt Wagner person who was in initial contact with you, offer them to true demonstration of Pimax8K represent DCS 2.5 with some proper and best Modules like F18 Hornet which should be released soon and looking fantastic. I believe they will accept such offer as opportunity and mutual interest to promote both products in best way.
So you could see on video what opportunity you missed.
(to part of community who overreact)
And come on guy you obviously forgot that Oculus until Facebook buying it even have much more problems than Pimax have right now.
It is normal progress of such complex product which offer so much new and unique experience. Just remember DK1 days and how long it was until DK2 and than how long we wait till CV1 release which is forced to be released and was way overpriced even Oculus promise will be less than 400$.
Personally I believe in Pimax8k even 5k too, and there is no rush. It is in our interest to test properly without rushing and create proper product. If this means we need even version 15 of the prototype.
As I see on the forums Pimax change a little strategy and delay is eminent. They starting to massively testing product among chosen backers before will be released.
That means bad and good news. Product is delaying it is bad news but good news is that will be properly and thoroughly tested what is in our interest as consumers. I will tell you just this, be patient.
And I forgot to tell you this with new Vive pro and Oculus Go which will released in next 6 to 9 months which is just minor advance from first gen VR forget about it you will see somenthing really new gen2 VR from Valve and Oculusin next 2.5 or 3 years. Pimax is your only chance for really new experience in 2018. And be honest to your self how much did you know about this products before CES 2018? Nothing. This is just marketing and that have nothing with product quality, just showing better financial power and marketing experience nothing else related to product it self.
So don't judge something just based on marketing.
