It still may very well happen but the process would likely be more complex and require having to take the controller apart. This by no means a concrete answer but my feelings on the current situation."

    Wait...does that mean there won't be any firmware related updates to the VCI-400 EGE at all?

    Seems strange that you are able to update the standard VCI via USB but not the EGE one. Surely they're they exact same hardware wise inside, just with the different firmware for the extra EGE functions?

    I'd also be really interested in knowing one way or the other whether this is going to happen as it will very likely affect which controller I choose to buy. As per tbox, importing the EGE whole is not economical, however if I know that the EGE firmware upgrade kit previously mentioned by Ean will definitely be released, then I'll go for the VCI-400.

    Anyone know of an official update from Ean at all? It sounded like it was definitely going to happen a few months back.

    I'm really looking forward for an upgrade kit. I was hesitating between a S4 and a VCI-400, I couldn't wait for the VCI-400 EGE and because I live in France, shipping costs and customs will have raised the price tag too high for me.
    So I bought a regular VCI-400, hoping for an upgrade kit, la VCI-100. It's really a great piece of hardware, I'm happy with it. But there's just so many things I could do with an upgraded firmware... The demo videos of EGE units makes me look at my gear as a castrated controller !
    I would really appreciate if Ean Golden made a clear statement about the upgrade kit. Because I believe that the only difference (except the look) between a regular unit and an EGE is the software/firmware, because I think that the hardware is exactly the same inside, and because Vestax provide a firmware upgrade utility with the drivers (at least on Windows, don't know for Macs)... Well, that's a lot of "I think" and "I believe", so yes, a clear statement would be really appreciated to sort things out
