Oh, and after reading all 284 posts in this thread, Im getting a bit worried.
Not about Pimax team being late or so, because I truly believe we are soon gonna see some positive news.
But Im more worried about how the mood/approach has changed from the backers side the last weeks. Its quite sad and surprising to see so much people being angry and constantly throwing shit on Pimax team lately.
Dont take me wrong here boys. Im not related or associated with the team. Just like all of you, I invested money in this. I spent around 1400 bucks into this product. Im just a backer and a small YouTuber. And right now I'm waiting with patience and big hopes.
But I can somehow deep inside imagine how disappointed the team must be right now seeing their own backers totally going haywire calling the campaign some kind of fraud.
I mean, come on guys... give the Pimax team some more time. Why make all the rage all of a sudden? The team is a few days late with the latest news, but is that really the end of the world?
They are just probably late with the new lenses. Maybe they arrived today. Maybe they are assembling the units already. Or maybe they are delayed another 2 weeks. Who knows. All they probably want is to make this product as good as possible and finally released. So they can go retail at some point. In the end, they want to make money, just like the investors, so there is no reason to "hustle" backers and lie to anyone.
Seriously guys, do you WANT this to fail? Do you want this to be a rushed out half-baked and overpriced product like the Vive Pro with hilariously bad lenses, broken sound and no ASW support (still after 2 years)? I dont pay for that crap.
We have NOTHING on the horizon even coming close to the specs of the Pimax 8K. This is not just another Vive/Rift clone. This is supposed to be kind of a breakthrough in VR technology. The thing I tested back at VR Days was mind blowing. Call me a liar, I dont care. I saw what I saw. Whoever that doesn't agree have probably his/her own personal reasons to deny the fact we have something really big coming up and releasing soon.
But whenever it will be in June or December, doesnt really matter as Im personally 99% sure its still gonna be the best headset available.
Keep up the good work Pimax team, you have my full confidence. Meanwhile, I keep calm and enjoy the sunny day
