Title: Pre order?
Post by: envir61 on 05:55 PM - 09/24/21
Very excited about the Nexus as I prefer controller. Possibly to pre order and any distributors lined up for Canada?

Concerned that due to chip shortage there may not enough available on first production run. 

Looking to purchase 3 so there may be a high demand on day 1.

Hi guys

In theses strange times we living in tech seems to be in big demand ps5 Xbox series x RTX graphic cards etc demand outstrips supply .I'm not sure about how many XIM NEXUS will be available at launch if its a small number can't xim implement some kind of pre order like steam have done with the stream deck so they go to the right people not SCALPERS

Maybe a member of this forum before the nexus was announced
maybe proof of a xim product already purchased?  I've owed the Xim 3 Xim 4 and i own the Xim apex now

Really hope you're only able to purchase one per customer.

Because we know what people are like these days re-selling on ebay and whatever  else to make a couple dollars 👎

Yeah depending on the amount available at launch it may be prudent to limit one per account. I play with my son now and would want at min 2 but to be certain everyone gets one, I think 1 per account is fair for the first month at least. After a certain time frame and depending on supply of course, open it up.

Also some account are very new and created post Nexus announcement. I'd suggest any accounts that existed prior the the Nexus announcement.

I would like to see everyone who has purchased a XIM product in the past have first dibs on the Nexus upon release. Iíve purchased every XIM made and Iím going to want a Nexus as well. It will definitely not be pleasant to not get one. When they start taking orders, we should get first priority. Even a waiting list would be fine with me, but I donít want to have to keep checking this site every day. Take every ones order and start a queue.

Agree, particularly members of this forum who have helped the XIM as a product by providing feedback and support to other XIM users. I'm really looking forward to this product, have been since reveal and I'd be so disappointed if I can't grab one out of the first batch.

Agreed if there's so few at launch can't they just vet us lets say the ones who can prove they've  purchases from xim before would get first option to buy i can't see that anyone wouldn't  think that's not a fair way to go .

Maybe for first batch or maybe for first week only,  limit sales to forum members only who were registered before the announcement date and only a single unit per person.

That will ensure all of us who are waiting not so patiently get first shot.

Guys Obsiv already mentioned a second batch with 5 times the size of the launch one has been ordered, so everyone who regularly checks the forums for news and updates will get their Nexus for sure! :)

unfortunately I am afraid if you do not accept pre-orders. will it run like all consoles, graphics etc. in the year 2021 means as soon as the nexus can be ordered, scalpers will be bought up within a few seconds.

Post by: sergons on 07:24 AM - 11/09/21
Please let us to make a pre order. I don't want to wait for the second batch because of scalpers.

Nexus is still flying under the radar as no marketing campaign has happened yet, and no big tech website has published any articles so far. You guys are among the very few who know about this device, so i highly doubt any scalpers will know or even care about the controller :). At least not before it blows up and becomes more widley known.

Not talking about the XIM community here, but based on other product launches from different companies a preorder system usually has the problem that people start to become demanding or entitled when the launch gets delayed. Just because they have an active preorder they start to claim things or threaten the company. Its easier to delay a product launch when there are no preorders as money isnt involved yet (same situation when not paying up front). For a preorder you also have to have your pricing locked in, which is something that is difficult to do during semi-conductor shortages where prices can change with each month. At last for scalpers a preorder isnt any different to a normal product launch, the scalping just takes place once the products have shipped then.
By the way the XIM Team is doing their best to launch the controller later this year, dont take this as a potential hint for a product delay! :)

Been a member for over 11 years, have multiple xim360/2s and xim3s and started the project for getting the Sony Move Navigation controller working on the Xim (https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=6408.0). Would I qualify? =P

I have only been a member of the forum for like a year or two but I had a Xim4 forever and currently use a Xim Apex (when playing console). Here's hoping I qualify for an early batch lol. Gyro aiming is by far my favorite input method so this thing is a dream come true.

Cheers CrossCrucial! You're efforts haven't gone unnoticed. I love using the Sony Nav, in fact I have a stable of 5 of them that I like to modify, customize etc.

I am sure it has not yet been said that the launch will 100% happen this year.

I am more sure it has been said that they are trying to launch this year. That means although it is highly probable that it will happen before the year end, there is a chance it doesn't.

We are all eagerly awaiting news of product in stock and ready to ship.

So the device will be able to be pre-ordered within the next month? As it's December tomorrow and they said within this year.

Also, is this one of those 'pre-order now and the you'll get the device in 6 months' kind of thing? Because if that's the case they should really tell us so we know where to put our expectations..as most people probably think they will be playing with this controller in a few weeks time..

I'm hoping it will be like the B-Loader. He releases a video on Youtube then it is readily available on Amazon.

therotically, the developers only have 2 weeks left to bring nexus onto the market. between christmas and new year would make no sense at all. hope we get new information this week
Title: Re: Pre order?
Post by: sergons on 06:35 AM - 12/06/21
Can you give us the date already? I'm tired coming here 10 times a day to see if there is any info about release date. Reveal video come out 3 months ago and the only thing we heard since that was, we can't tell you the price, release date. Seriously?
Title: Re: Pre order?
Post by: ioop16 on 07:08 AM - 12/06/21
to be honest, its christmas soon, time to buy gift so i will not have the budget to buy nexus (and i will not buy if it's more 99$ just for a controller)

So i hope in january stock will be available (99$ maximum), if yes, i will buy

Take the time you need Team Xim. I would rather have a perfect product then a half backed one. Just delay it in to next year no need to stress about it

I agree when its about the hardware. When its software i dont mind a beta and help test the product to make it better.
