so we got an cosmos elite bundle, we got a face plate coming and the elite headset stand alone are we going to get a face plate bundle? Because that's a lot of individual tech early adopters to the cosmos series have to buy to improve their tracking experience particularly if you don't own a vive og.  If the cosmos elite bundle is $1699(aud) and a cosmos without a face plate is about $750 (the elite headset $1099 minus the face plate $349) so $1699 - $750 = $949 worth of needed tech, purchasing theses separately from the store is over $1,148.96 + what ever the converter cable costs( face plate $349 + controller $199.99 + controller $199.99 + base station 199.99 + base station $199.99) so that an extra $150 or so we have to pay to be on par with an elite....(I'm in Australia so sorry but I'm doing everything aud but the point is the same) its better to sell my cosmos and buy a elite bundle plus a little cash because buy the looks of things i could buy the og cosmos controllers and face plate after and have it still end up cheaper (og cosmos controllers x2 is $358 + $750 for a plateless head set + pro link box $86.99 = $1194.99 - $1299 = $104 but its the same price as the other face plate at $349).

So if you want to upgrade your tracking from og cosmos its gonna cost you $2447.96 all up including you original cosmos purchase 

or if you bought the elite for $1699  and wanted base station freeless for some weird reason it be $2406

and just to make an additional point buy an og vive estimate 900(they aint that much but what ever) + og cosmos controllers x2 $358 + elite headset only $1099 + cosmos face plate 349 = $2706

it is literally cheaper if u own a og cosmos to buy an og vive new and an elite face plate for about the same as buying all the the other tech then you still have the option to sell the brand new og vive headset for a profit and yes you can still find them  

lol you can buy the vive pro starter kit for $1299 or upgrade your cosmos og to elite for + $1148.96 thats fairly brutal hell you could buy the kit sell the head set buy the face plate profit 

damn was only gonna see if there was gonna be some bundle for us early cosmos adopters but I'm almost certain i just convinced myself to buy a vive or pro kit new or refurb then sell the head set and buy the faceplate ....

Hopefully someone from the Vive team will respond but there has been a few subtle nods that they've been discussing some sort of more affordable upgrade path for Cosmos adopters struggling with tracking. They had nothing solid to report earlier but I hope they have something more substantial to add soon. I'd really like to see some sort of dialogue opened between the team and us consumers who are less than satisfied with their purchase and feel like the currently announced upgrade path feels like a slap in the face.

We still don't have anything firm to share - we're still working to adjust operations during COVID. The entire global supply and fulfillment chain is heavily disrupted - it's just part of the larger global situation.
