You sound depressed. No reason to give up hope on something just because there is good reason to be highly skeptical. There is still a lot of time between now and when the target delivery window is. A lot can happen in that time. Of course, if you're hoping for a direct competitor to any existing consoles or set top boxes out there rather than something that almost certainly will predominantly be its own thing, you should probably continue to temper that hope.
Not depressed. More embarrassed for basically spamming AtariAge with this. Maybe it will turn into something, but it sounds like the guy behind it has done some shady stuff in the past. I am mainly a looker and not a poster, so when I do make a post, I don't want it to be junk. I just felt like I owed an apology. There are so many cool things going on with this forum, I don't want to lower the sound to noise ratio :/
