  1. Thanks for following up with this. Background on the joystick controller would be nice, since it seemed to be the only thing Atari had working before their crowdfunding campaign. Also any thoughts on the ribbed console design since there's not much out there.
  2. Possibly from Atari themselves at E3 2019 (emphasis, mine): https://www.pcworld.com/article/3402456/whats-inside-the-atari-vcs-ryzen-emulator.html E3 2019 was where they had a bunch of empty Ataribox cases made to look working, one transparent mockup and a black box that only we at AtariAge called them out as using a PC:
  3. Hurry up and get one before Atari buys 500 of them!
  4. Did younbuy your AtariTokens yesterday? https://www.atarichain.com/#/
  5. Atari update! Sorry backers, it would be unfair to send out only some units, so we're not gonna: https://medium.com/@atarivcs/atari-vcs-managing-the-unexpected-d87ac17b99df
  6. Would I be considered a "hater" if I point out we're literally weeks, not months, from the commercial release? If Atari was honest in any of this, their consoles would've shipped before COVID-19 was even known to be a thing. But I guess they "call it hardware because it's hard", and not because it's a physical piece of equipment.
  7. ... except my belly. But make it a Choco Taco and you have a deal!
  8. Only Scrapyard Dog, Super Asteroids / MC, and Basketbrawl are from Atari. I believe the rest are @Songbird's.
  9. Evercade informed people that their launch date was moved from April 9th to May 22nd due to the coronovirus. Granted they're probably different factories, but at just over a month away I'd have expected a delay announcement from Atari by now. Or if it's going well and on time, an announcement that it's ... going well and on time.
  10. Shot (Dec. 13, 2017): Feargal's letter saying they are not prepared for a crowdfunding campaign, copied above by @Flojomojo. Chaser (Dec. 14, 2017): One key element. Sobering reality (Feb. 19, 2020): It seems they're finally to the place they should've been before even thinking about crowdfunding.
  11. Atari isn't really doing the hotel, of course. It's just another licensing agreement: this time to True North Studio of Phoenix, Arizona. Pretty peachy sign-on deal for Atari, too:
  12. My Sept. 2017 Moto X4 is 2.2 GHz, 3GB RAM and 32GB flash. Brand new I think it cost $350-$399, but it's 2020 and unlocked versions go for $139. I don't think that's the Amico's draw, though. People wonder why there are no exclusive AtariVCS games to coerce them into buying the console. Well, now we have a console that is exclusively exclusives. The very low-end specs may not even matter.
  13. AA needs a "horrified" reaction. 🥺 😆
