Yeah after the shipping details page kept crashing I finally got through an ordered a kit. We shall see indeed!
Yeah it does. Did you already get billed? I did and it seems a bunch of people didn't until it gets closer to the ship time.I refreshed the page the second it cut over and the Index kit was already 5-7 weeks, so I don't think there was any real chance of getting it before HL:Alyx launch. Sucks for people who wanted to play it on launch and don't already have a VR system.
If I had a better rig and $700 to burn, maybe. How high does the IPD go on the PiMax? I have to max out the Vive and even then I don't think it's quite right for me.Have any of you considered the PiMax 5K Plus? I recently got one and wow what a difference in games it makes. The enormous FoV is really game changing in VR. It doesn't feel like you're stuck looking through a pair of binoculars as much as you are just looking around in real life. The 5K Plus is also 120Hz however it does require a very beefy GPU to push. I wouldn't bother with anything less than a GTX 1080 Ti or a RTX 2080.
As of nearly 6PM central time...Seems like you sort of "pre-order" them because it says 5-7 weeks for Index kit shipping, 2-4 weeks for Index Controllers.
There is actually 2 settings to adjust IPD on the PiMax, there is a scroll wheel on the side of the headset and software setting in the PiMax Tools app.If I had a better rig and $700 to burn, maybe.

I was the same way until I got to play with one for a bit. Alyx is going to be cool but a ton of the cheapo games are surprisingly fun.I ordered a full Index Kit at 1 PM eastern, 10 AM pacific just as the site came live.
I got an email shortly after that.
It seems that I'll be billed as the time approaches for the kit to be shipped.
My account page says shipping in 2-4 weeks.
oh well. gives me time to set up the basement for the whole deal.
I said I'd never do this. But Alyx roped me in, I hope the game is worth the investment.
Cockpit games, too. Elite Dangerous, DCS World, racing games, et cetera.Plenty of other games to make it worthwhile.
Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is pretty awesome.
Boneworks is cool if you can handle the locomotion (I couldn't, it made me nauseous)
Hotdogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades (H3VR)
The Gallery games
Other titles ported to VR (Skyrim, Fallout 4, No Man's Sky, SUPERHOT)
Tons of little "experiences" and stuff
I got an email just now asking for my address and payment details.I would like to join your club, alas I have not yet been invited.
Did you receive email regarding shipping or did you have to check status @steam/valve?
Mine was the same.I just got the email allowing me to confirm shipping details and pay for the controllers. Does that indicate it should be shipping soon?
Yeah it seems they only ask for the money when the items are ready to go. I could be wrong but everyone who has payed has their shipping process moving along.I just got the email allowing me to confirm shipping details and pay for the controllers. Does that indicate it should be shipping soon?
