Will HTC vive Cosmos get Upgrade Kit

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the HTC Vive Cosmos will ever get an elite kit that wont make it more expensive than just getting the HTC Vive Cosmos Elite already. I already have the Cosmos and don't wanna shell out another 900 bucks when that is the price of an entirely new headset and all. I don't understand the pricing of this stuff at all. 2 Base stations are $134.99 each, both being $269.98...2 controllers are 129.99 each or 259.98 for both and the faceplate is $199.99. IN TOTAL ALL OF THIS IS $729.96. THAT IS MORE THAN I PAID FOR THE COSMOS ORIGINALLY. If you had to spend the extra money on this stuff just to upgrade this way you would be spending a total of $1,429.95.Why  why why is there no upgrade kit. If i had to pay that much just to UPGRADE to the elite I'd rather just get the valve index.

This question has been asked a lot. And you will get no answers for this matter more then " we will contact the sales department about this". And then complete silence. My guess after asked 5 months ago that this will never happen.

Yeah, I asked that question for a few weeks before I gave up. The support staff here is pretty nice and responsive but it's clear that HTC has no interest in supporting customers who were screwed over by the faulty OG Cosmos. The Valve Index wait times are slowly dwindling so I recommend you waitlist for that instead or preorder a HP Reverb G2. Valve Index is a superior headset and the G2 is on track to be great, though, it's also inside-out tracked so it may face similar tracking issues to the Cosmos.

This whole ordeal has personally turned me off of inside-out entirely unless it's an Oculus (which I personally won't have in my home due to it being a Facebook product).
