We should then be up to speed with receiving a major shipment every 2-3 weeks, putting us back on schedule to get the Pre-Orders cleared out and back on a regular shipping schedule with no wait times.

Thanks again to the loyal customers who have been patiently waiting in the pre-order queue, you guys are awesome!

The Xbox Wireless Adapter v2 supports both Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One controllers for full wireless and crossover audio support with the Cronus Zen. Only $24.99!

Zen Pre-Order Update

The factories are now back open so we'll get word on the next shipment in a couple of days. Hopefully we'll be able to start shipping out Batch #2 towards the end of next week. Stay tuned for updates!

Fri, 19 Feb 2021 01:24:33 +0000 <![CDATA[Zen Pre-Order Schedule Update]]> As production has been delayed for a couple of weeks, the pre-order batch numbers and schedule timetable has been simplified so it's easier to follow:

BATCH #196190 to 103200SOLD OUT & SHIPPED*
BATCH #4119288 to 121762SOLD OUT - DUE LATE APRIL

*A small number of orders couldn't be shipped in this batch but will be prioritised in the next batch. Check email for updates.

We expect to be able to start shipping Batch #2 in March, and the rest of that Batch along with Batch #3 by the end of March/Early April. As soon as we get word of more definite shipping dates for the Batches #4 and #5, this news page will be updated and i'll make sure everyone is emailed with the latest info.

Thank you for your support and patience - and stay safe out there!

Tue, 16 Feb 2021 16:23:32 +0000 <![CDATA[Store Closed For Upgrade]]> The Cronus Store will be closed for a major upgrade from midnight tonight until 5am EST (or 5am until 10am GMT).

Thank you.

Tue, 09 Feb 2021 22:33:26 +0000 <![CDATA[Zen Pre-Order Update - Sold Out Thru March]]> The March Cronus Zen Pre Order has now completely sold out and most of the orders from the January batches have now shipped (those that haven't shipped due to a bad address or other issue will be contacted by email).

Unfortunately due to the weather, there was a 2 week delay with the Jan #2 shipment which has also caused a delay with the Feb #1 shipment, so that has now been moved to mid March. As soon as the Zens leave the factory we'll be sure to get them out to you as quickly as we possibly can. Any order that we couldn't ship in the January batches will be given priority service once the next shipment arrives.

In the meantime there are new GamePack updates this week for Fortnite Season 2 Chapter 5, Apex Legends Season 8 & FIFA 21 Instant Skills!

Thank you as always for your business and patience during these trying times - Stay safe out there!

Fri, 05 Feb 2021 02:35:01 +0000 <![CDATA[Zen Pre-Order Shipment Weather Delay]]> Quick update: The Jan #2 shipment is delayed until Monday due to the snowstorm that hit us here on the East Coast.

Sorry folks, sometimes these things are out of our control. We're on standby to get all orders shipped as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your continued patience.

Fri, 29 Jan 2021 17:26:59 +0000 <![CDATA[Zen Pre Order Jan #2 Shipment is almost here]]> The Zen Pre-Order #2 shipment for January is now in the country and clearing customs. It was supposed to get here today but will now most likely be Monday or Tuesday next week.

As soon as they arrive we'll have solid numbers on how many we'll be able to ship and will make sure everyone is informed and the schedule updated. We already have two more shipments lined up for straight after the Chinese New Year celebrations end mid February.

Thank you for your patience!

Mon, 25 Jan 2021 20:38:20 +0000 <![CDATA[Cronus Zen Pre-Order Update]]> First of all thank you to everyone for the overwhelming support we have received while manufacturing this product during the COVID crisis. It really means a lot to us when customers understand just how difficult it is to navigate all the new regulations and restrictions in different countries, so we truly appreciate and value your patience.

The next shipment is due to arrive any day now, and as soon as we know how many are available we'll be sure to notify everyone who is waiting for them to arrive.

On that note I do have some unfortunate news to share. Due to the devastating knock-on effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is now a worldwide shortage of most major electronic components which has caused all prices to increase, including a huge increase in overseas freight costs, so we have had to make the difficult decision to raise the MSRP of Cronus Zen to $89.99.

This does NOT effect any pre-order that has already been made and confirmed with the cheaper $79.99 - every single one of these orders will be honored at the older price.

Chinese New Year also begins on Feb 5 so the factories are all closing down and we will expect no more shipments to leave the factory until they open again mid to late February.

This is affecting all of our retail channels, so if you have managed to secure a pre-order with the Cronus store or the Collective Minds store,  I highly recommend you hold on to it until the stock is available to ship, as cancelling your order will only send you to the back of the queue and you'll likely not receive your Zen until early April. We ask that you do not succumb to the temptation of paying $300-$400 on eBay as these scalpers should be discouraged whenever possible.

As soon as the next shipment arrives I'll post an update with a revised schedule.

Thanks again - and stay safe out there!
