Was there a reason given for the change of the game lineup? Licenses expired? Surely not because of lack of space!
Also, is it possible that these early versions of the Atari Flashback Portable in the field are sort of tester units for the fans (us) and AtGames is seeing what our responses are; i.e., not happy with compatibility issues, and they are making corrections to the portable and thereby delaying the release further to make a better product? (Wishful thinking for this year; maybe next year. Plus, I would like to see a sturdy combined joystick-paddle instead of a d-pad.)
Why else have a shortage right before the holiday shopping season? Maybe Atari found out about the SD slot and got upset and halted production?
Conspiracy theories and I should make a tinfoil hat to wear!
Plus, no mention by Bill of the "other" product that was supposed to be released in November, or did I miss that...
