    Maybe I am misunderstanding something but really makes no sense and I am the one usually seeing both sides of an argument around here xD Wireless is even dumb because of all the problems that is going to cause as well - you are replacing a simple design for a even more complex design that is going to have more problems over all than what a cable has. Like are you nuts? Wireless wears out faster than a cable will in the long run of things to addition to that extra cost. Do you even know how wireless works?

    Cost and retail are 2 different things. Yes maths is hard to Sunshines.

    Cost directly impacts retail.

    Common sense.

    We are not talking retail for the company Sunshine. In the long term cables will add up and up and so too does postage and time for Support to diagnose. Are you really that dumb I do wonder.

    You just complained about "postage" and applied it to the concept of Retail, and you dare question the intelligence of others? LOL

    The part that you continuously miss, which Mradr tried to explain to you, is that take whatever concerns you have (including something as trivial as 'postage') and they multiply when you add complexity such as a wireless component.

    It's ok for Sunshine, his Rift is the last one to stop working. He does not need to understand Warranties involving Support staff time, sending in Rifts first as a double check, sending out replacements, or just sending out replacement cables. Then doing all of this 6 to 12 months later and so on as the Warranty continues to replacement parts. Due to the design flaw it ultimately is more cost effective to cut that all out and be wireless from the start. Just obvious.

    Since you still aren't getting it, I'll quote it again:

    Your suggestion makes things worse, not better, Mac_Man.

    You really need to take a step back with how you approach conversation on this forum. You are intent on making really bad arguments and then trying to spam your way out of it.

    @mac_man86, I think you maybe missing the fact that the warranty is from when you originally purchased the Rift, getting a replacement cable does not extend the warranty and 12 months from the original purchase it is no longer under warranty.
    So 1 cable as opposed to a very expensive Wifi system that has issue to start with, and is not part of Oculus's parts chain it is fairly obvious why they supply a cable.

    No, if the cable they send out fails they would replace that too. Oculus are very keen to help all the way so you can access the Store again as a valued customer.

    But the original warranty is never extended after they send out the new cable. Even if the replacement fails. It all happens under the original warranty. It's not that difficult a concept to grasp.

    Sunshine you are not Oculus. They are a good company which does look after any customer. I just received my new cable. It was out of W by over a year. I am also a second hand buyer. They do oblige because we are good customers too.
  • ZenbaneZenbane Posts: 13,877 Valuable Player
    Oculus is definitely known to give free handouts for those in need.

    Dear Oculus, I absolutely need a free Rift, a new PC and those hundred games because I didn't win any of those recent draws.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Keep on discussing as you are and it'll be strike 2.  Blatant flaming will not be tolerated fella.

    Stalked ? Really ? You keep stating laws and how offended you are by privacy. You are either a super troll or you really don't understand what you're talking about. Flaming is inciting others in a thread with your posts. Yet in another thread you say Oculus are a great company. I don't like blatant flaming and I know many others don't. You know you're doing it and I've given you a nudge to say stop. Understand ?

    Then you don't understand what "stalking" entails. You are actively posting things publicly, on a public forum, and getting public replies, by members of said public forum. That is the literal opposite of stalking.

    Just take a step back for a bit. I'm sure everyone could use some "cool off" time.
