in a way you are correct, mate, BUT i would say that while the CC was an absolute disaster of biblical proportions, the vega+ is a far, far more toxic product, whether or not it actually gets released. Their "social networking" mouthpiece is one of the most disliked people in retro gaming and the people now left at the company have a history of massive legal/financial problems in everything they've been involved with (i've touched on this a little in my videos but it's really a very deep pit to get into). The fact that they employed someone to represent them who is known to be one of the most toxic members of the community and is a bully, a known liar and a twit shows how little they know about the scene and how little regard they have for anyone in it. Basically these people are not deluded like the creator of the CC was, these people are deliberately lying to members of the community to continue to get money from them despite no product showing up. In all honesty, what they've done so far could have been done in one week by anyone who knows what they're doing. They have provided next to ZERO updates throughout the campaign, presumably they're au fait with the CC campaign and didn't want to play their deck of lies too soon. I was told, categorically, that everything was on track, the device would be out (by now) and the detractors would be left with egg on their faces. It seems that the only people with egg on their faces here are the creators themselves. Furthermore, they've not paid either the original production factory OR the concept artist, now saying their design will be "true to the design featured during the fundraiser" (basically a not so smart way of saying "it's not the actual design, though, because he is thoroughly pissed off with us").
The people behind the campaign have also been in touch with 3 different police forces in the UK to report anyone saying negative things about the campaign. I was, again, told about this by THE MOUTHPIECE at the company who said "it's a jailable offence" (lol). There are many people on twitter railing against the campaign, myself included, and telling the actual truth about what's going on. This has led to a number of people requesting refunds which has in turn made RCL furious and they're looking to lash out at anyone saying anything detrimental (true) about the debacle that they're behind.
This is a far, far nastier happening than the CC, which was basically laughable. These people have almost 1/2 a million of other peoples money, some of which seems to have flat out disappeared, and have done a weeks work in almost a year, constantly lying all the time as they've done so. There was meant to be a video of the "final device" working uploaded a week or more ago. No video has been shown. Their "updates" (scant as they are) involve saying they're going to do something "in a few days" then, well, not doing it. They seem to presume that people are so stupid as to not actually bother requesting further information (that they've been promised) and that yet another smokescreen will be completely appropriate.
The sad thing is, they have the money.
These people are really dragging the name of the ZX Spectrum through the muck. Certain people are only involved because their reputation is so tarnished in the spectrum community that this is almost some kind of dig/strike against their detractors "look at me, i'm involved in this ! i AM important ! you MUST listen to my bullshit (again)" and the rest of the folks behind it have been involved in far more nefarious things in the past, collapsing several businesses due to massive financial skulduggery.
The CC was one mans idiotic dream that went wrong and fell apart due to hilarious lies.
The VEGA+ is a wilfully toxic project that is mocking the community and the backers. Even if the device DOES get made, it's going to be garbage. Funding these people is a bad thing to do, regardless of the product.
Also, they are hiding behind the name of Clive Sinclair, who is merely a small shareholder in the company and has NOTHING to do with the product. They keep billing it like he has but Clive had a bad fall at the start of this year and has been convalescing since then, far from the world of technology with his wife (who also drew her shares/investment out of a sister company owned by one of the RCL bosses in the first quarter of this year which is also covered in one of my videos)
