Thanks for the all responses which has enlightened me on the situation with Opcode Games. According to some of the comments I received from this forum, I tip my hat for the wonderful accomplishments that Eduardo has done over the years. In fact, I will go that much further and say it's wonderful to see someone as passionate as Eduardo to deliver such outstanding products that keep the 8 bit systems alive.
However, make no mistake, despite what personal problems one has or is going through at the moment does not warrant the fact that he/she can abandon their customers and leave them hanging with nothing but hope. After all we are not trading school lunch or hockey cards. This involves money and it is Opcode Games obligation is to keep their customers up to date: "At least that".
After all you wouldn't give money to a contractor that is going to renovate your home and than doesn't show up because of personal problems and hope that he/she completes the job one day. We all have our ups and downs, but business is business, and your personal life should not get in between the two: "The optics are not good, know what I mean".
I, personally, want one of these SGM from Opcode Games, but I can't send money to someone who can't even return one email to me regarding anything that pertains to the SGM. In fact, I am not alone, many others have tried to email and have the same results: "Six months for some".
All we ask is for some respect, an email does not cost money. I am sure he has access to a computer: "Who is hosting the website?" I am sure the person hosting the site can give us an update.
Nonetheless, I hope he does get his issues resolved. For the SGM is a really cool peripheral and adds new life the Colecovision.
On a positive note, it's cool you guys support Eduardo and believe that he will do good for his loyal fans. I don't know Eduardo, and I want to believe that he is a stand up guy, but I would like an acknowledgement first before I send my hard working cash to a paypal account and live with only the premise of hope that I will receive my SGM one day.
Long live Colecovision & Opcode Games
