  1. If someone takes advantage of you then you can either take it or take advantage of them back. But for like the 50th time a jailbreak is obviously coming so it doesn't matter.
  2. *deep sigh* You're not "putting anyone in their place" because it would absolutely go through. The people that investigate the claim are still going to hear a bunch of tech jargon they have no clue about, will see that I'm willing to return the product, maybe google search it real fast, still have no clue wtf I'm talking about, and then refund the payment. Also that entire situation doesn't matter because Analogue isn't hanging us out to dry, and it wouldn't effect Kevtris at all. All you're doing is continuing a pointless tangent for no reason. Have you been put in your place enough or should I go on?
  3. Can we drop this already? Banks don't understand tech. The second someone starts talking to them about field programmable gate arrays not performing correctly the mid 40s heavy smoker chick I'm talking to is going to roll her eyes and stamp a paper. It's a bank not a patent office.
  4. Well the thing is the cores are already written for the nt mini, and whatever code needs to be added to run snes roms already exists because it has built in games so that's already coded for fpga use and on top of that the fpga used in the Super Nt is the same kind as the one used in the nt mini just with more resources. I don't mean to make it sound overly simple to port the cores because I couldn't do it but for the person that wrote them porting them would be as Kevtris himself said in the MLiG stream "easy". Also I really think if the cores didn't happen it would be a company policy and not something decided by Kevtris. If he decided not to do it on his own because he didn't have time or something I'm sure the community would find a way to raise a high enough bounty to motivate him to do so. If the special chip games aren't included in the jb I have no problem hanging onto my sd2snes. Heck if rom support at all isn't added for the snes I wouldn't be that bothered because my sd2snes has me covered. My main concern is that the systems from the nt mini get covered because I'm just not going to buy another mini.
  5. I'm not going to hold onto a $500 console that can easily be entirely covered by a newer generation that includes an additional system. It simply isn't happening. But no that isn't why it bothers me. It doesn't matter though because I don't think Analogue is a company that would not comment about something to falsely inflate the appeal of a product.
  6. Sorry, truth is I have a lot of anger issues I'm poorly working through and the thought that a company would deliberately withhold information about their product to sell more units behind a wall of non-refundability and just leave people with a device perfectly capable of being jailbroken but won't be is just really really frustrating. I obviously don't think that is the move Analogue is planning though and it was a stupid tangent to go down. The thing that bothers me the most is that the Super Nt is legitimately a near perfect experience and if it doesn't get jailbroken that means all the systems the nt mini covered wouldn't be supported. At that point I'd probably just give up and switch to emulation because I sold off my nt mini and I'm not going to buy another one even if by some miracle it got a plastic shell and dropped $250 in price. The Super Nt is really amazing but so much hinges on this one piece of news that hearing all the theories that it isn't going to happen for months has really taken it out of me. If it is like the Nt mini then we'll get confirmation of a jailbreak one week after it was released and the embargo dropped on the 7th so it is pretty telling that the release would fall on Valentines day and it is just a few days away so getting angry about bad theories now when we're probably about to get confirmation was stupid but I really can't believe people would think Analogue's plan for not commenting was to preserve sales with people that would be less happy with their product but pick it up anyways because they didn't know for certain. That's just... terrible.
  7. It's a date then. (Don't tell your significant other)
  8. If you want to make a bet about it I'll take one without a file in it. Actually will that even travel well?
  9. I didn't say no one gets caught. I said at worst they would deny the refund for not meeting their criteria. But the point is irrelevant because a jailbreak is obviously coming.
  10. People have nothing to gain by returning their consoles as long as Analogue isn't deliberately keeping people in the dark about massively important features that are not coming. They are not doing that, but if they were it would only be fair to fight fire with fire. But as they are not, lets move on.
  11. Put money on it or move along. I'm tired of explaining how wrong you are. Say $180? That way if I'm wrong I can pay you with the money I get from my refund. No one is. If you file a claim for a single $180 that shouldn't get approved but are completely honest about why you want to return the device and the bank doesn't understand what is going on and approves it anyways then you haven't done anything illegal. And people dispute charges that shouldn't get approved all the time and at worst it gets rejected. No one gets prosecuted for jail time because they refute a single $180 charge.
  12. Wrong. Letting people buy something because you don't want to tell them the truth about your product and then saying "No givsies backsies!" is a total d-bag move. But a jb is coming so lets stop talking about how obviously horribly bad it would be if they tried their current sales strategy and didn't come through. And I'm also not going to debate you about the extremely dumb logic that "it's okay not to tell people about leaving a feature out to temporarily sell more units" but if you're salty about it I'd be happy to put money on it to end this conversation.
  13. If Analogue didn't want to say "no" and let people buy a "non returnable" item and find out for themselves that makes them the d-bags. Luckily they are not and a jb is obviously coming.
  14. You're retarded if you think everyone that filed a claim that got rejected on a $180 charge is sitting in prison with a 15 year sentence. Edit: Now people that lied about shipping charges and used the extra cost in some kind of slush fund... those guys get in some trouble. Usually fines though.
  15. That's literally never going to happen. At the absolute worst after wasting hours of both mine and Analogue's time (totaling a higher cost to them than just accepting the return in the first place) the bank would deny my return. It isn't fraud if I'm telling them exactly what it won't do and they rule in my favor, which they will because even if Analogue has a point about not confirming rom playback they would still be bastards for saying nothing and leaving it up to people to invest in a "non refundable" item to find out for themselves. Also I doubt they want anyone poking around their finances lest the banks find out what shipping the consoles actually cost and where the majority of that $40 shipping charge went.
  16. I can easily enough show that it won't work with roms. If Analogue doesn't release a jailbreak and wants to say "we never confirmed that it would" my bank isn't going to understand what roms are. Every year I spend my tax return and every year my card gets shut off for fraudulent charges because it is "atypical spending habits" and every time I buy a firearm something goes wrong with the transaction because they don't agree with the second amendment. Anger me and I shall unleash the full force of their incompetence upon you. Trust me by the time they finish dealing with the "top experts" my bank employs to waste people's time they will be begging to just take the console back.
  17. It is no more complicated than putting roms on an sd card for the retron 5.
  18. It might not be. He could be paid based on a percentage of sales or for his time, we don't know these things and you can't assume he isn't being paid for his work without evidence. Good luck explaining that to my bank.
  19. It is at a pricepoint that competes with the retron5 which has sold tens of thousands of units and sucks horribly. If it has a jailbreak and gets 2m views on an incredibly positive review it is off to the races. Although Analogue has really shot themselves in the foot by letting all these reviews come out before confirming a jailbreak because that would sell so many more and now what is probably the most popular review it is going to get is going live this week (already recorded) and it won't have any mention of the biggest selling feature the non-niche crowd is going to care about. If it destroys the retron5 market it will be mainstream. If Analogue ships any to resellers/third parties or not for stores to stock is anyone's guess.
  20. LinusTechTips is doing a video about it. Their less popular vids usually get around 300k-400k views and their more popular vids can break 2 million. At its current price point if it has a jailbreak it will sell extremely well. I'd be returning it because it doesn't perform as expected. It said it would work with every game but I've noticed that it doesn't with certain games (roms). If they want to debate my bank on that they can feel free but good luck explaining it to them.
  21. I'm sure it can be returned. Even if the company makes a policy of not accepting returns then you can still just go directly to your bank and contest the charges. Rest assured one way or another if that was their strategy people would be furious and they would get their money back. It would be completely not worth the damage it would do to Analogue's reputation for that to be their business strategy.
  22. Well 1tb sd cards are already a thing. By the time a ps1 fpga is ready with any luck 2tb sd card will be affordable and that should fit all the supported cores on it.
  23. As long as we make the assumption that Analogue's master plan isn't the absolutely retarded: "We'll keep everyone in the dark so that the lack of a jailbreak won't hurt our sales" plan then what they are actually doing becomes very clear. Some people seem determined not to see obvious evidence though. No. That's like asking what engine is in a Porsche and being told "no comment" so you order a Porsche but it might come with a vw engine inside because it hasn't been confirmed. Obviously only a total jackass would ship the latter product. 795gb for every US game, an additional 124gb if you want the Pal exclusives that never got an American release, and an additional 316gb if you want the Japanese exclusives that were never released in US or Pal regions. So 1.2tb not counting hacks, translations, and homebrew.
  24. I disagree. The standalone console would still have genesis cart and controller ports and while it might have a built in 32x it is too early for sega cd and sega mega cdx support so the dedicated console could still offer a expansion port. I know I wouldn't get a hdmi genesis if I would still need my regular genesis around to play some of my games for it. So it would be pretty awesome to get a standalone Genesis that was fully featured and there would still be a reason to upgrade for those that want a better experience and allowing the core for the snes on the genesis and vice versa makes each of them more appealing on their own and people that would never spend $400 on a genesis and snes would be far more tempted to pick them up for $200 and after getting a taste they might buy both for the added features or they might just really love what they've got and tell people how awesome it is and boost sales that way. I'm not saying that will happen but it shouldn't be ruled out because I know I would love a Genesis core but I would also still buy the standalone if it could interface with the sega cd. Yea, that is a wonderful way to treat customers. Not retarded at all. Certainly won't leave anyone upset in ways that could have easily been avoided without making Analogue hated. Totally viable business strategy 10/10 EA approved.
