GOOD NEWS FOR THOSE WITH EXPECTED OCT. 28 SHIP DATES!!
Per the previous post, I searched for a customer service number and hooked up with a VERY nice and helpful rep. (that I unfortunately got disconnected from toward the end of my call) located in Florida.
While there wasn't a way for them to change the shipping method of my order as hoped, she did find out that as of 3pm EDT Sony was expecting to receive the first shipment of the PEGA-VR100K's in tomorrow (Friday 10/24) and to begin shipping out orders as soon as Monday or Tuesday 10/27 or 10/28!
This is of couse subject to change, but as of this conversation, she expected all to go smoothly.
Also, the bags are a promotional item not manufactured by Sony, but bundled for a limited time. If I had pushed to cancel my order and reschedule it to try and include the bag (as the previous poster did), I assuredly would not have been in the first shipment as scheduled. Seeing as the VR100 is a new product, she didn't know how long before subsequent shipments might be arriving or once again become available. It could be a few days/week or it could be much longer? She simply had no way to tell. I'm too anxious to wait so I'll go with getting mine that much sooner.
I too would have really liked to get the bag, but since I don't see myself ever traveling with it, and I don't really need yet another bag in my collection (I too like cases and bags for my gear a great deal), I opted to stay in my present place in line and get mine that much sooner.
Good luck on the bag and getting yours quickly. The wait might not be to bad! The utility bag looks really nice too and she told me that it wouldn't be made available through SonyStyle either. Enjoy it!
P.S. She also added that the UX series has been doing VERY well with a great deal of positive feedback from their customers... It would seem that they have a huge success on their hands with this one! That means good things for future development in the line
