I just wish we would get some kind of idea when these will ship, seems like forever since I placed my order.

I placed my order quite a while back and haven't heard a thing. Where do we go for the current status of the project?

Looks like most of these games should work on the Concerto with a couple of exceptions.

it depends what they use xm for. Hsc and pokey are available elsewhere now. Yamaha and keyboard? Not so much. I imagine a Yamaha game would play ok but missing audio. Playing a keyboard game (if there were any) would be like playing without joysticks, you might be able to look at the pretty colors on screen but not do anything.

Are they all being built in one place, I ask because that kind of limits output? Just wondering what the turn around time is like on making XMs, for comparison it was quite a while before the second run of the Super Game Module happened. If I miss the first run supplies would it be some time before another round? :)

 

I love expansion modules but it's hard to get the independently made ones. Do you think some day these could end up on the Store page?

I would think so...some day...but we will all probably be dead by then. :D

What do you mean "HSC and POKEY are available elsewhere now"? There's what, 200 HSC cartridges out in the wild? Of course, the potential use of HSC will rapidly grow far larger than that number once the Concerto is out of beta release.
