Risks and challenges

In the field of game controllers, GameSir has a reputation for remarkable performance owing to its careful design and robust features. We have advanced from GameSir G1, G2, G3,GameSir G4s to the current GameSir model. However, this feat has come with a set of challenges that have impacted the design process. Our seasoned developers work tirelessly to overcome these challenges and deliver high-level performance that players associate with our company. We take every minute detail very seriously and hope to bring our core products within reach of all our supporters. Some of the challenges we experience are as follows:

Risk/Challenge#1 : Timeline can slip
After one year of design experience collaborating with some of the leading gaming companies in the US and incorporating ideas from gaming fans, we have learned lessons in regards to timing. We have developed and tested many prototypes, and we are now ready to translate these designs into finished products for the mass market.
Even though the testing phase took longer than expected, we relish in the comfort of having two reliable Chinese suppliers. Both suppliers have more than five years’ experience in this trade, and they have the capacity to produce M2 in time as we gather funds from Kickstarter. We have already raised some funds from investors, and we look forward to your support as well.
We take quality very seriously and for this purpose, we shall send a few samples of the gamepad to our fans so they can give us feedback. If there is a need for further alterations to the gamepad, we will extend the testing process for one or two months until we get it right. Keeping you updated is critical to us, and therefore, we will inform our supporters in case of any delays in the timelines.

Risk/Challenge#2 : Reward fulfillment
Deciding on a suitable reward system is another challenge we faced, but after careful considerations of plausible options, we arrived at a solution. We planned ahead and set the ball rolling on ordering the rewards such as gamepads and t-shirts to ensure they arrive as scheduled. We have enjoyed a long partnership with our suppliers, and this makes it easier for both parties to communicate and adhere to the set deadlines. We placed an order of controllers and other materials that are only slightly above their minimum order quantity. This way, we are confident that any delays will not pose a serious threat to our timelines. While we appreciate every minute spent on our products, we will strive to get these rewards delivered to you in time.

Risk/Challenge#3: Product Quality
Quality is at the heart of our designs, and we choose to work with only top manufacturers in China who can deliver the level of quality we desire. We always make a trial order for sample testing before releasing the products to our valuable supporters in large scale. With this Kickstarter initiative, we promise that every backer will get our full customer service to address his or her concerns.
