This one is just another dropping of the ball. Pimax aren’t cable makers. They will buy the cable. They’ve had prototype hmds for a cable manufacturer to test on for a long time.
They charged us who wanted one. Knowing that we want one for our setup and not supplying with hmd means they know we have to go and buy again. For them it was a phone call, ‘We’d like to order a few thousand cables to this spec and it has to run this vr hmd without problems’. Yes I know a little more work, but not much. One person could have it ordered by lunchtime.
It’s a 3rd party item that’s not unique and being held back by Valve, but it comes later. Of course it does.
Buys cable from Pimax, has to buy another one anyway. Buys lighthouses from pimax, has to buy another one anyway. Buys controllers from pimax, has to buy more anyway. Buys deluxe audio strap from Pimax, has to buy another one anyway…
And people wonder why I think I’m better off selling to a vive owner than keeping it.
