2020 has been a challenging year for most small sized businesses.
I also recently marked my 1 year Phoenix anniversary and reflected on what I experienced.
Summary: exceeded my expectations and beyond thrilled
Here are five areas that delivered value to me.
1/ hardware: modern hardware design reliable, efficient, powerful
2/ small form factor: portability achieved...have taken it on a few trips, easy to store at home
3/ joystick support: 8bitdo wireless/NES, Coleco vintage, Atari vintage, and 3rd parties
4/ game support: support for legacy Coleco carts (all 43 worked) and could explore ROMs on SD card (Coleco, Atari)
5/ customer support: responded to key issues on forums and via email
Of course I would like more features, and it would have been better to set expectations more frequently/proactively about the future roadmap, but for year 1, the core gaming experience exceeded my expectations and that established a solid foundation upon which to improve upon.
