[Replied]Dear Pimax , where are the UK backers headsets?

issue

#181

Yeh I agree that seems to be what’s happened, what I remain confused about is how backer 4XXX in Germany had their hmd dispatched to them from the UK warehouse, before 1XXX backers in the UK had theirs dispatched.


#182

That`s a hell of a lot of replacements


#183

For all we know it could have been a bad batch of HMD`s that pimax found out about and did not want released out into the open, this would at least of made more sense.


#184

A considerable percentage of the recently landed UK devices were used as replacements for devices that required repair or replacement. In almost all cases a new unit from the warehouse was simply dispatched to the customer as a replacement. This depleted the available UK supply to cover the deliveries.

But ^ is the official explanation from PimaxUSA.


#185

Good theory maybe they recalled all the rotten plastic units, manufactured in the weeks 46-48 (if mem serves©)


#186

Even in that case they would have gain respect saying the truth.
i just believe the fact and fact is some backers are using uk’s backers headsets.
No excuse here.


#187

I’m sorry, I can’t stop myself from adding my 5 cents to the gossip and conspiracy theories wave in this forum.

Somebody here said that he is pre-order number in 14xx. It could be that there are more than 500 - 800 pre-orders in UK/EU.
Pimax said that they would start shipping the pre-orders on 25.01.
According to the spreadsheet from 25.01 all 5K+ KS orders has been produced.
Pictures of shipments from today/yesterday had 5K+, no 8Ks, in totals around 400 units.

What if at some point Pimax realised that they won’t be able to ship all EU/UK pre-orders in time (because of long shipping time from China and the rate of replacements) and decided to hold KS orders in UK warehouse for pre-orders to make sure that they will be delivered as stated.


#188

We will see very soon…


#189

If that happens and i see preorders turn up earlier than my Unit i let the warhouse get Roger Stoned 6 o’clock in the morning.


#190

@PimaxUSA , is there any way you could contact Dallas and ask them to send us our headset.
I do no see why i would have to wait any longer, i don’t accept it.
They claim having stock here.

Edit :

i do not care if it comes with wrong plug, got plenty of adapters.


#191

“KS Backer! Open the Door!”

Pimax opened the door.


#192

I’m not saying that they will start the pre-order deliveries before KS. It may be that both will be happening same time around mid to end of February. Or else…


#193

uk and some europe backers. im from europe and im in the same situation


#194

Oh no, Subnautica Below Zero goes Early Access tomorrow and I don’t have my 5K+ yet :frowning:


#195

Has VR been confirmed for it yet? I know it’s “expected” to support it as much as the previous title did, but it isn’t listed as supporting VR (like the original does) on the early access page :frowning:


#196

Checked their forum, unfortunately:

Sadly we don’t think we’ll be able to do VR justice. Not because we don’t love VR (we do) or all own multiple headsets (we do)…We wanted to do a better job with SN1 but time and availability of people was difficult. We just don’t want people having a bad experience in VR for Below Zero, so we’re likely not doing it unless we can find the time. Making the game itself is the top priority.

I hope that they will listen to community and implement VR as in the original game soon.

Sorry this is a bit offtopic - I created a post in VR content forum.


#197

Thanks for the clear and honest response, much appreciated.


#198

you are a fucking star for laying it out plainly. thank you. 0 bullshit is my favourite flavour.


#199

Will the new shipment be the headsets without the black dot issue?


#200

Let’s face the facts. It would be an incredible high number of the backers that are VR enthusiasts. We would have heard/read most returns as people complian more online. I myself don’t see a hell of a lot to justify over 250 Oceania and I’m sure there are a lot more from the uk warehouse.

I’m sure us HK warehouse maybe delivery people are going to experience the same delay. Whatever that is. I expect announcement saying or headsets are in fact in the uk warehouse.
