  1. Ok, what really gets me going is that all these new scammers come to Us, The People ๐Ÿ‘‰, and pitch some half (_|_) idea about a new game changer product that NO ONE asked for. Then they make all sorts of miraculous claims and promises and when the time comes to show off what they have... Nothing, they get defensive and blame their mother, brother, cat, dog everyone but themselves for the failure and shortcomings and why they missed the deadline that THEY set. I am not just talking about the Amico, VCS and coleco chameleon. GM is guilty of this too with the Electric Hummer, They try to hype up everyone with having some basketball player say some crap that no one cares about and then they delay the unveiling. Pandemic is not going to stop people who can buy a $100K Electric SUV that will never go off road, from buying one, they dont have a finished product to show and C-19 was a good excuse to delay, just like Amico & VCS. And just like VCS and Amico, GM gets a basketball player to feature in an ad for a technical product. The last person I want to take advice from is a basketball player on anything except buying shoes. Unless that basketball player is also a mechanical or electrical eng. please do STFU! I want details from someone in a lab coat with big glasses and a clipboard!. Atari listed Rob Wyatt as CO-Creator of X-box because they thought it would give them credit to the project. Amico did that crap as well with J Allard from microsoft. They just throw names around for clout. Please tell me where are these two eggheads now? both TOOLS are off of the projects, I cannot imagine how much money they paid them to "join the team" a few million is chump change so they bailed. What ever happened to keeping your Fat mouth shut until you actually have made progress? I would like to see a kickstarter like this "The ToastMaster 2000!, HERE IT IS!! all finished and ready to go! we just need backing so that we can order the large amount of raw material at a lower cost but the product is already designed, patented, tested and here is the FINAL consumer demo model packaging and all." And what is the deal with trying to associate with "partners" and "history"? Hey, I can sell my crappy hand made cards at walmart.com so I guess Walmart is my exclusive partner now! You Hacks! You License out a game streaming service just like a T-shirt kiosks pay for an Atari License to print out T-shirts and Hats with Atari logos on them. There is no collaberation. Neither Atari or Amico have the courage to break free and define themselves and a product, they bounce back and forth on nostalgia to try to sell a procuts with SHOVELWARE as games.
  2. Since 2017 Nintendo has sold 60 million Switches, in that same time frame Atari has allegedly built 96 consoles and given 1 away to a young girl of the mom that is working on the Atari hotel... big asperations for this system, I am sure that all the devs are beating each other over the head to get a spot to make exclusives for the VCS. Why do I feel that this entire thing paired with Antstream is the 2020 modern version of Action 52 for the NES... all garbage. You are going to get what you pay for, or maybe not. Just to satisfy the Atari rooters... GOOD WORK ATARI! YOU REALLY NAILED THIS CONSOLE ON THE %^&*$ HEAD! Homerun hit right out of the stadium! โšพ KUDOS!!! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿค›๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ
  3. Looking at all the comments on what Nintendo does right and Atari did wrong should hit home to everyone shilling for Atari. I will try to put together some points that I observe in a subjective way. Now take this with a shake of salt on your Taco, this is what has been said in the last few hundred pages from memory. 1- People who have shown interest to develop games for Atari have reported no reply from Atari. Very very bad. 2- There will be very small number of consoles. Atari themselves are touting Sandbox Mode, meaning the hardware will never be put onto the streaming platform and none of them will be buying games, Just like the Playstation Debacle where people were buying the PS3 to use as a super-computer with the Other OS function. Many people have said they just want to use the Ataribox as a streaming box and lounge PC. No reveneu for Atari and partners from the Sandbox mode consoles. That leaves even less consoles generating revenue. 3- Advertising is non-existant, not only that but if you TRY to find information on the system, you just cant. 4- In a battered worldwide economy, no one other than niche buyers are going to spend money on this thing. 5-Atari never had any intention to actually go through with the plan to build anything, they are stalling because they know it will be a massive failure. They are looking to mitigate any negative costs to the company. This was all aplan to make Atari more attraactive for a buyout. They are taking off the shelf "parts" for every aspect of the system. Games are from a streaming service they do not have to maintain in any way. There is nothing stopping these games from being played on a computer using the josystick or controller, making the VCS unnecessary. (Allegedly)
  4. I have never seen a promotion for a SCAM extended. (smh) If I was a consumer I would be asking many, many questions. So your console is only available for pre-order and ships in months not weeks? -YES!!! $389.99 you save $10 You have demo models available yes? -No only for friends, bribes and alleged Devs and Merchants. May I at least see the finished product? -No Can you post pictures and a video of the product? -No Can I see the box? -Nope Is there any evidence that this product exists other that hearsay? -yes, Conjecture and the the previously mentioned Hearsay. Why do you have your passport and a sack of money in your hand? -This interview is over!!! (Allegedly)
  5. Please stop mentioning Dreamcast... such a hot name for a videogame system ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿฅต Atari's choice to regurgitate the VCS name makes me wanna ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ also.
  6. I see they are still using rendered images, I thought this thing was finished? C'mon show it to us in all it's faux woodgrain glory. Entice people with pics ๐Ÿ“ธ Oh I cannot wait until shipping dates are missed, not only missed but the barfed all over. I cannot under any circumstance imagine Cheesehead parting with 3 million dollars when he has NO obligation, he just needs a very plausible reason why he cannot produce and ship the other 3 million units and that 3 million (minus fees to make 96) are his for the keeping. ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿ’ถ๐Ÿ’ท๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ’ด๐Ÿ‘› C'mon cheesehead you KNOW who your dark master is. (Allegedly)
  7. This has always been the Walmart "exclusive" pre-order price since 1999 (hyperbole) Save $10 by giving us your money now?... naw i think i better keep my money and wait for the massive price drop.
  8. ^That is because it is complete Hog Wash...๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ– except the Jaguar shells, that thing was used for all sorts of stuff ๐Ÿ˜‚ Atari was surely not the first videogame system. not even counting tennis for two on an oscilloscope I do believe the Magnavox Odyssey is the first home console and PacMan is the best game sold on the Atari.
  9. ^This made me go the Wiki page... This jewel of text needs to be posted. I will crop out the best part; " Atari has delayed the console many times and has a long list of recent scams that they are still currently operating. If you've paid for an Atari VCS, it seems unlikely you'll receive one." ๐Ÿ˜œ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿงจ๐Ÿ”ฅ ______________________________________________________________________ Atari VCS (codename Ataribox) is an upcoming home video game console produced by Atari SA. The system was first revealed in June 2017 and pre-orders began on May 30, 2018.[3] After several delays, the console was expected to ship in March 2020, but was delayed again due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[4] While its physical design is intended to pay homage to the Atari 2600, the new Atari VCS is expected to play modern games and streaming entertainment via a Linux-based operating system that will allow users to download and install other compatible games onto it. The system shares a name with Atari, Inc.'s 1977 Video Computer System, usually shortened to VCS, which was renamed to the Atari 2600 in late 1982. Recently, Atari has entered a lawsuit for not paying the director of its upcoming console, the Atari VCS, who was a contract hire rather than actual employee. Atari has delayed the console many times and has a long list of recent scams that they are still currently operating. If you've paid for an Atari VCS, it seems unlikely you'll receive one.
  10. It is hard to not mention the Amico, as both systems are destined to the E-waste Bin, and both are trying to rejuvinate old school gaming with the old "Remember when? Play it Again Sam"tag lines. And let us not forget the Coleco Chameleon that paved the way for these 2 "innovators" to suddenly spring from the ground. If I want to remember the good old days I can; 1-collect the old system and games 2-I can use Youtube and watch a speedrun of ANY obscure game ever made. 3-download most of the games (or clones) on my phone in point-01 of a femtosecond. 4-Play these retrogames and old LCD games in a browser 5-buy a new old system from a company that actually knows what they are doing, just look at the Analogue Pocket that sold out 1 day ago. I expect to see Atari go after them for royalties because they say it can play Atari Lynx games. Coleco Chameleon -Never Existed Atari VCS -No games Amico -No hardware to play Mobile Games ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿฝ to all 3 of you AND your motherboards ๐Ÿ˜… (Allegedly), just to cover my (_!_)
  11. ^Well well well, The amico has been delayed until 2021.. I guess we WILL have to wait until then, Atari would not pass up this oppertunity to say "our competition has also delayed the release of the unitellivision Amico for such and such reasons, we also have these issues." (Allegedly) This ๐Ÿ’ฉ is about to go down like a free Tacos buffet! ๐ŸŒฎ
  12. ^ Well, I the 1st one is kinda subjective. "1- Gifts cannot be valued at more than $200" I would not pay $200 for a ๐Ÿ’ฉ VCS ๐Ÿ˜
  13. Would this not be considered bribery? sending gifts to family of the accociates working on a contract for the Atari Hotels? I just bring this up so that it can possible be included in some journalistic report later down the line. Unless the girl is making games for the VCS... I really hope this backfires on IndiGoGo as well. I called it, 96 units for 96 "favors".. I am sure there were 100 units made, 2 for Big-C and 1 each for his goons to pawn off later. 3million dollars for 100 units... $30,000 consoles. Paid for by Donations. Is this the most expensive console ever made? Even the NeoGeo was only like $700 back in the day, and that is like $1,300 todays money. Well, if people had eyes open they would have seen this coming from day 1. It all started in a Hotel, and now it has ended in a Hotel. Big-C probably is forward thinking, he probably negociated a side deal where he gets unlimited stays in Atari hotels. Remember how Atari used Hotels to show off the plastic box? Big-C has no budget for hotels now, so he will use his free stays at Atari hotels from now on. Sort of like how that dude in prison had the priviledge to walk into any "BuSway" and order any free sandwich anytime anywhere. I'm sure his Jet-hopping-plans to escape are now compromised with the lack of Airlines operating. (Allegedly)
  14. FrankoDragon, it was Sivermania. This Atari VCS box looks suspiciously bland and the sheen on the box resemples ths box from the Coleco Chameloen unboxing as well, That was the first thing I noticed about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKR1XNsHKeU
  15. So it begins.. the dissidence ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ The rage must be swelling inthe backers ๐Ÿ˜ค. they waited this long and then some "SHELLY" gets a free VCS, this is the Ultimate in Trolling.
