Simple supply and demand.  Demand will be very high at launch and will probably sell out.  I am willing to pay more to guarantee I get one at launch.

That goes against the fundamental consumer-friendly focus of Xim Tech.

As a privately owned company, they're not beholden to shareholders, nor the "make more money" mantra, which is the sole purpose of a corporation.

Making more money will be achieved via lower prices, higher sales volume and faster manufacturing processes rather than shilling customers.

I'm not saying to increase the price for everyone.  I suspect they will sell out and I would pay more to get one of the first batch. Just an idea for those that want to support an amazing team

I'm sure it would be a perfectly valid excuse to ramp up the price at launch, but OBsIV is nothing if not a man of principle who looks after his customers above all else.

300g for a plastic tray? I'm guessing more like 35g tops so I'm going 25,000 xim apexs 😁

Try hundreds of thousands. :)

This post from OBsIV made me much more comfortable with the whole "Will Apex sell out at launch?!" situation. If there are truly hundreds of thousands of Apexs made then I doubt we have to worry about an early sell out, especially active forum users and waiting list members.

That was in reference to the plastic box inlay and it could be a 12 month supply for all we know.

The launch batch will more likely be in the tens of thousands, which should still cover early adopters and enough stock to get the distributors up and running. So I wouldn't be too lackadaisical about ordering as soon as possible.

everyone will be able to secure a unit, the launch batch is large enough! :)
charging extra to exploit the current situation is not the idea that lies behind xim, id recommend to spend those additional 50$ on another game that you can enjoy with xim apex once its out ;)
