    Fixed that for ya'.

     

    If I'm going to invest in a dumpster fire, I'd rather get one of these:

    And yes, the fire lights up.

     

    I wonder if they'd custom make one with an Atari logo on it? :ponder:


    ‘perhaps we should launch an IGG campaign?

     

    will likely be more successful then than the VCS @ 1/20th the cost ... could even put a R-Pie in it LOL

  2. A Ponzi Scheme relies on bringing new money in in order to cover those who (despite false incentives not to) choose to withdraw their funds ... all the time the total claimed value if stock is a fraud.

     

    I seriously suspect that Fake ATARI are desperate to get funds in from presales (and other silly ventures) in order to fund their long overdue promise to backers.

     

    Ponzi is not an effective long term strategy... the house of cards will collapse eventually... I just hope backers get theirs before it does.

    Next week is November. :ponder:

    Yes it is, but review what they have said ... they are not in a position to ship next week ... nor will they be by mid November ... perhaps last week of November when you add up all the things they have said ... New Years may happen for USA backers, but not international Backers if they are shipping via Standard Mail ... I’d love to know what happened to that US$45 I gave them for shipping ... what a rip off.

    My short take: Don't count on getting your VCS starting in mid-November. I recall being one of the earliest backers, so maybe I'll have it by Thanksgiving. There's no way the Classic Joysticks get shipped to the U.S. then sent out by then. You'll probably get it by the end of the year, though. 

    Wishful thinking- given previous prevarication by ATARI there is no hard evidence of anything they claim - my bet is they will supply Walmart before backers and no one will see anything before year end ... if it ever happens

    ^ They only sell licenses, and the occasional Hat... they have no experience first hand about importing electronics.
    Atari was never an electronics company cut them some slack!
    They are trying thier best Dang Namit! everyone chillax (yes I said chillax) they will get the consolez to you... eventually

    There are lots of people out there with these skills, but Fake ATARI are too cheap or arrogant to employ them

    So the only thing holding them back is the controllers? Is that accurate?

     

    i only backed the loose onyx console with no controllers by the way

    No, now they are prevaricating about paperwork.  Import to the USA details I suspect .... Fake ATARI are clueless on some very fundamental things about manufacturing and retail.

    So - where's my apology (not from you of course) for saying that 1 - "October was not specified as a delivery date", and 2 - "There's no way in hell they would make this date either"?

    Fake ATARI apologizing?  LOL ROTFLMAO 😆 ... they are simply the most arrogant and incompetent bunch I have ever come across.

    He's posted up a picture of it plugged in and running Atari Vault now.

     

    He's also confirmed that the packaging is not final, so this is presumably one of the units that they said were going out to devs in July.

     

    As such, I suspect there'll be a little longer to wait for the backer units.

    Yep, ATARI has said as much on IGG ... another broken delivery promise

  9. So in a rush of honest disclosure on IGG:

     

    Atari 7 hours ago

    PROJECT OWNER

    We are waiting for internal approvals/confirmations and plan to provide a fresh shipping update within the next couple business days. Thanks for your patience. We promise it won’t be much longer!


    I read this as Fake ATARI had not even done their due diligence on how to import a product into the U.S.?

     

    I assume the original pallet was delivered as “sample stock” and that exempt status gave them false confidence?

    There is no reason that anyone should be selling Pong in a stand-alone form in 2020.  It should be part of a $14.99 compilation pack for a console or be a $1.99 app for a smartphone.  Trying to sell such a weak IP in hardware form now is pathetic.

    Paddle Controls is the only real reason
