The Index HMD is out of stock They must be selling like hot cakes.
But Valves not a manufacturing company. It’s primarily a software company. Index and Knuckles are running off new production lines not ones that switched from one model to the next. I’m sure they’ll get better at it with time.
Hmmmm they sold as many RiftS according to the Steam Survey. If they both increased by 3% last month. That was off the back of limited sales.
I was never without Knuckles when I returned mine. Not one day.
Considering this is Valves first headset they’ve manufactured themselves and the price of the full kit I would say they’ve done very well.
In fact they are the business model every other VR manufacturer would love to follow. High quality, high turn over, high profit.
If I was GabeN I’d be very happy the way things have gone now early teething problems have been quenched.
If you are serious and have never seen the film you should. Music is good too (if you like late 70s early 80s metal like Dio or Black Sabbath) . I used to have their album which was inexplicably NOT called "smell the glove" like in the filmWhat’s spinal tap, bone marrow replacement therapy?
Even if you ordered now I doubt you would get them before the end of the year.I've kind of lost track of what's going on with the Knuckles controllers, are they worth considering to upgrade from the original Vive wands or is it still better to wait while they sort out hardware issues?
That's alarming for the price you're on a second set and think they might fail again. I'm not remotely bothered about Alyx sounds like it's worth waiting a while.Even if you ordered now I doubt you would get them before the end of the year.
I guess the longer you wait the less chance of defects but Valve will replace them if they brake.
I would just get them. I’m on my second pair and not confident they won’t go defective next year. Lol
You will want Knuckles before Alyx drops 100%
No one can predict how reliable Knuckles will be in 12 months time not even Valve. I would switch to Rift S as Touch has the reliability you think is reasonable.I'm not scared of defects, it's just I expect when spending nearly 300 pounds on hardware it actually works reliably which I don't think is unreasonable.
There seems to be only one answer that will make you happy and that is for some one to say Knuckles are 100% reliable because they cost nearly £300. Thats just never going to be the case from my and others experience. The other option is to keep your Wands or as I suggested switch to RiftS and Touch controllers. I don’t know why you’re getting upset when some one points out the options.Deleted - wrong place to ask such a question clearly if this the sort of response I'm going to get.
Indeed - you'd get Alyx free if you own the Knuckles. So if you're considering ordering the controllers, do NOT buy Alyx.You will want Knuckles before Alyx drops 100%
