       But good grief, it's like Atari didn't think through a lot of their design decisions, and the final product is just a Frankenstein monster with bits and pieces of ideas that don't really fit together. All IMO, of course. 

    Someone posited this a while back: FArtari never intended to make the thing in the first place, they thought someone else would buy that “privilege” off them ... time moved on and they were forced to do something.

    VCS will ship soon and people will actually physically have them. I wonder how the narrative will change at that point.

    Admiral Motti: Your sad devotion to that ancient Atari religion has not helped you conjure up the missing joysticks, or given you clairvoyance enough to find the VCS actual shipping date.


    P.S. The narrative will change from “when are you shipping” to “how to a lodge a warranty claim on this POS that you shipped”

    I left the Werner group ages ago.

    Yes ... I walked away after a few days ... silliness incarnate.


    the real VCS threat isn’t speculators, it’s scalpers given claims that all GameStop and Walmart stock has been sold ... next they will be on eBay for more than a PS5! 🤣

  4. FAtari have posted another update:


    The good news is that a small number of the Classic Joysticks we have been waiting for were finally released by customs and delivered to the fulfilment center. While there are no guarantees, we anticipate the balance will be released and arrive very soon so that the sorting and packing may begin. Yes, for the first time, finished VCS units, controllers and joysticks are all in the same place at the same time!

    Accordingly, and in anticipation of imminent shipping”


    ... more talk and no indication of actual action

  5. So addresses have been locked on Backerkit.


    I’d bet this is simply FArtari pushing buttons to make it look like it is doing something.


    I seriously doubt we are going to see this thing ship soon, certainly not by the promised Thanksgiving LOL!


    It’s sad that stating the obvious, often before another FArtari delay, results in accusations of Trolling ... the IGG crowd are in some serious denial of who is responsible for their pain.

    @Chopsus Fred and Tamico are Master Blaster in that Thunderdome.

    Neither are capable of managing a lemonade stand at this point, so I ain’t too concerned ... especially if one intends to stick his head up the other’s ass in order to fight LOL (a la Master Blaster).


    FArtari is the big dumb guy on the bottom?

    @Chopsus you really need to stop causing so much trouble in the IGG comment section. It is the Thunder Dome again!

    LOL ... it really is a devoted bunch of cheese sycophants LOL!


    FArtari now has an excuse to drag delivery into next year, I’m betting March by the time the New Year blow an hoes are expended:

    Latest update on joystick shipment is that there is no update. Customs does not provide any info, it only holds or releases. Based on experience, our agent thinks the products are being held for random inspection and therefore it’s just a waiting game for now. This is normal and actually happened with some of the Collector’s Editions. It took extra time, but the shipment was eventually released. We will continue to keep everyone updated.

    You are incorrect, as we all know Atari does not even pay the people designing the products, so why would they pay anyone else? 🤣

    As for the Forwarding service? Yup, Atari outsources everything because they are either to inenpt, lazy or a combination of both. This is the only good news for the backers, knowing Atari they would F-up the paperwork and the shipment of VCS would end up in AbuDabi next to Nermal 📦😾

    All true, I stand corrected ... it is still not going to help FArtari meet their obligations this year sadly

  9. More and more I am thinking that half of the IGG posters are on FArtari’s payroll in some form or another... their ridiculous, repeated responses to some pretty reasonable questions seem to indicate that they are really just trying to get negative facts/commentary off the front page.


    At least FArtari has now confirmed they are using a Freight Forwarder. I suspect because I suggested they were too cheap to, so there may be a slim hope of U.S. backers getting a CONsole for Christmas (better than a lump of coal?). Given the caravan of incompetence, I seriously doubt we will be seeing anything in the wild until long after New Years.

    Or perhaps Atari wants to start the warranty period on the same day as shipped so that they can run away from all obligations 90 days or 2 years (where you live).


    Do we really think the warranty will be worth more than toilet paper?

  11. This is now well beyond farcical, FArtari have just blown yet another promised delivery date and most Backers didn’t even notice :

    Atari 2 hours ago

    Quick update: As of today, joysticks have not yet cleared customs and not at facility yet, so we unfortunately can’t start sorting. More info as soon as we have it.
