VIVE Tracker (Ultimate) [VIVE Ultimate Tracker] What you can find in the summary


Frankly, for those who have VIVEtracke3.0 at the base station, it will not be necessary.The bottleneck when it came to purchasing suddenly on the day of the event was that there were problems with the payment system, such as “the discount was not applied even after entering the coupon code” or “the coupon code did not go through”.Since this trouble is very common, the only countermeasure I could come up with was to “not try to buy at a discount” and “have multiple means of payment,” which is a very unrealistic strategy of swinging all the way to purchase without enjoying the original benefits of having multiple means of payment.Also, the most important thing to keep in mind when exchanging information on Twitter is that there are many people who “interpret things that have not been officially announced” on their own. As a result, even if the interpretation was correct, there were many people who, for example, tweeted that “up to 5 units, i.e. up to 8 tracking points on VRchat” but interpreted it as “up to 11 tracking points if you add 2 more tongles”.Moreover, VIVE released detailed information, such as whether it was better or worse than VIVE Tracker 3.0 in a base station environment, much later, and even announced a few hours later that a beta version would be available in a few weeks and that it would be STEAMVR compatible!

 

This is the same as saying that the beta version will support Quest, Index, and others, so I have to wonder what the initial answer was that only Focus3 and XRElite were supported… I think many people hesitated to buy the product because of the HMD. I think there were many people who hesitated to buy it because of the HMD.

In other words, by the time we got accurate information, the product was sold out.
This speaks to the difficulty of correctly understanding the new full-tracking devices and getting them at a reasonable price.I am actually not the type of person to jump on a new full-tracking system right away, but rather buy it after some market and accurate information is available.
This VIVE tracker also has an official discord, so any uncertainties or issues will be gathered here as they come in.
If you’re not in a hurry, wait a bit and make sure it’s the device you want before buying.
This new full tiger device is a new type of full tiger device that wears two cameras on the tracker side to estimate movement.
