You have made people pay additionnal shipping fees for those base stations and now you refuse to ship them without the controllers so that “you” can save money on shipping ?..
This is unfair Pimax… Especially since you have told us several times you would send the base stations without waiting for the controllers to people asking for this.
Also some people have just paid for base stations and are waiting for this only, not controllers. If you want to ask people who have bought both if they agree to wait for the controllers to receive their base stations, why not. But then don’t make people waiting for base stations only hostages of this, as without controllers there will be no saving on shipping.
But then I’m now wondering if Pimax will be allowed to send base stations alone to people who have only paid for that, or if the only way to get them will be the bundle with controllers. Meaning people who have paid for base stations alone would have no other choice but to pay additionnal money to add the controllers to get their already paid base stations…
Can you give a clear confirmation people who have paid for base stations only will get them without having to buy your controllers ? Because the fact you now only communicate on sending the base stations bundled with controllers is worrying me.
Not that I’m not interested in your controllers but that will only be the Sense version which, if I understand well, will come even later than the non-Sense that is already still just a prototype in July (meaning probably several months before the Sense version gets ready for production, right ?).
On top of that, even if I was buying your Sense controllers I wouldn’t buy them at launch. After all the issues on the HMDs (for which the fixes you list in this update won’t benefit to early adopters) I don’t want to play the paying betatester for the controllers. So I would wait a bit to have the confirmation from early adopters that those controllers are reliable. But then that would imply a huge delay to get the already paid base stations if they were only sent bundled with the controllers, and I’m not even sure I will want to buy those controllers !
So please Pimax give us some clarifications. And please, if you already have some base stations in stock (you say in this update their are currently in production, so you have some in stock ?) then just send them right now to people who have just paid for this, have been waiting for them a long time already, and have already paid shipping fees to have them delivered as soon as they are available. This has always been the deal and was repeated many times here by Pimax officials.
