Base Stations Update?


#121

Out of Stock!
No chance to get base stations except on ebay or you buy an complete vive packege :wink:


#122

This seems to be some mafia practise though. Sell cars but you can’t buy single tires, only new cars


#123

HTC is fighting for its survival. Every VR counts for them :smirk:


#124

They should stick to selling lighthouses and controllers and quit the headset game since they can’t produce anything worthwhile apparently


#125

So, if we run into cable and basestation got broken or controller fall , we have to buy another full pack hmd?
@xunshu


#126

That’s case by case.
You should contact support if anything fail.

BTW, You can use coupon to buy controllers.


#127

But @xunshu, there’s almost nothing to buy after the full package pledges combined with the stretch goals.
Hint: I’d want a Pimax hoodie or a beanie though


#128

You can buy whatever produced by Pimax.
If we get free hands to make hoodies and beanies, we will add the SKUs in our online store for sure.

How about transfer the coupon to your friend?


What to buy with your $100 coupon
#129

So you model almost all of the videos towards using one base station but I cant purchase one base station?


#130

Backers were able to add single base station during Kickstarter.
We can add a SKU online if necessary.
sorry but we can only sell in bundles.


#131

So a ‘bundle’ is no longer possible? Because if we backed a headset and now we want a basestation with that, that would not count as a bundle? They had to have been ordered at the same time?


#132

If we can transfer then we are free to sell our coupon, right?


#133

OK, seems I’m too stuck with the single base station.

Can somebody remind me if we can setup the heaset with one basestation or do we need to have 2? Thank you!

IMHO removing the option to buy the basestation separately is not good at all. When you buying Vive you know what to expect and how this works. When I was choosing single basestation in KS, I was told that one base station is enough for sitting games I’m playing. I thought that if I need to, I can buy extra basestation later.


#134

That’s still true though


#135

Hi Xunshu,

Can you please explain - if you’ll add SKU later, how this will work?

Thank you!


#136

for sitting games you dont need a base station, the gyrosensor will let your head turn right or left, no room movement


#137

that’s really a SHIT and not good for your image


#138

@xunshu

So you cant sell base stations seperately. Fair enough.
does this mean we are able to upgrade a headset only pledge to a full bundle if we pay the extra?


#139

Let us know what combos you think we should add to our sales channels. We can discuss with the team.


#140

I would think most likely you can when they send the query to you. It’d be pure profit for Pimax to sell more.
