Shipping Cost – Price Increase

Hi guys,

VKB HQ passed along new and updated shipping cost info affecting all product categories for drop shipping from China to the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and I implemented them for VKBcontrollers.com today.

Sadly, shipping fees went up somewhat for all products, and these new fees are now in effect during checkout for all products.

As a reminder, here’s a snippet from our Terms & Conditions page that speaks to this as well:

VKB (as the manufacturer) reserves the right to update product prices or shipping fees based on operational considerations, without notice and without incurring obligation.

VKB North America (as the reseller) does not incur any obligation when the manufacturer updates product prices or shipping fees for any product currently or previously sold at VKBcontrollers.com.

Until next time,

Discontinuing the Newsletter Mailing List

Hi guys, 

for the sake of automation, and in favor of the “Get Notified” button available at VKBcontrollers.com’s various product pages, I have decided to discontinue the newsletter mailing list effectively immediately.

Instead, the “Get Notified” option (see example below) will send you an automated email once the desired product is back in stock, including a link to the respective product page with purchase options. 

This is a lot more efficient than having to manually generate an email each time a product is back in stock using a third-party mailing list. 

Until next time,

(Sold Out) Initial round of Gunfighter Mk.II ‘Space Combat Edition’ available

Hi guys,

VKB HQ asked me to make the initial round of Gunfighter Mk.II ‘Space Combat Edition’ (Tabletop variant w/ Kosmosima Premium left/right) available for ordering.

Other Gunfighter ‘Space Combat Edition’ variants, including the Pro with extension kit, or with Kosmosima non-Premium grips, will follow a little while later for a staggered release.

Those of you who are waiting for the Gunfighter Mk.II ‘Modern Combat Edition’ or ‘WWII Combat Edition’ will have to be a little more patient, as VKB HQ’s current focus is getting the ‘Space Combat Edition’ release rolling

Once I learn more about subsequent Gunfighter release dates, I will send out newsletters to let everyone know.

Until next time,

New Firmware for Gladiator Pro Mk.II w/ Kosmosima Support

Hi guys,

VKB HQ provided firmware to enable Kosmosima support for Gladiator Pro Mk.II, and I made it available on our Downloads page.

Remember, when installing a new grip, you will have to flash the Gladiator Pro’s MCU (Micro-processing Unit) to recognize the new grip; if you only install the grip without flashing, the grip will not work, and the grip won’t be recognized in VKBdevCfg either.

Please follow the instructions in this FAQ entry for flashing/resetting after installing your new Kosmosima grip onto your Gladiator Pro Mk.II.

Until next time,
