I have a dev kit but its the very first dev kit (This is the very first dev kit, the one before the Vive pre). I've had it since around when these dev kits went out. And is now starting to fall apart and not work. And become really hard to develop on. I've talked to a representative through live chat support and said “There is a possibility that the Vive is already defective or cannot support the news updates for the drivers”. Is it possible to get a consumer Vive. I can't afford to by one and rely on it to make a living.
