  1. No News is never Good News with Fake ATARI, no matter how they try to spin it, it's always another delay wrapped in promises they don’t keep.
  2. Has their unpaid designer put a lean on the stock sitting in the warehouse?
  3. Especially when legal action is FATARi’s main income.
  4. Why is Fake Atari being so secretive about something they have already announced publicly? What has gone wrong to cause them to bunker down like this? Why won’t they engage with the backers who funded the delayed mess to begin with? NDAs are usually issued when commercially confidential information is shared? Not when things are going to the publicity promoted plan ... so what have FATARI screwed up this time?
  5. I don’t think anyone here is excusing FAtari at all, simply pointing out how they seem to prevaricate while appearing to tell backers what they want to hear.
  6. At best your money refunded ... better than being a Backer I guess?
  7. Curiously it seems they never did ... they got others to conclude and say it, giving them, yet another, get out clause on fulfilling backers orders. if they do arrive at the same time as Walmart, or heaven forbid GameStop, that’s pretty poor and reason to wipe FAtari from the trusted brands forever. Needless to say I am looking forward to deleting my IGG account profile, especially if products can be bought on release at the same time as backers (or is that suckers?).
  8. Yep, exactly why I said I might have imagined it ... it’s entirely possible that the IGG comments on the matter are what fed this impression as, clearly, units are not going to arrive in backers hands in October, despite many, including me, thinking that is what ATARI said.
  9. As I said: perhaps I have imagined it, but I am certain they had made statements of specific dates for launch in November - these seem to have now disappeared. The only definitive statement I could find was an email on 12th July 2020. Atari VCS Team: “ Indiegogo backers will receive their Atari VCS orders in October. Stay tuned for more updates regarding a ship date.” ... and even that quote is attributed to someone else, even though reproduced by French ATARI ... I am interested to hear of those, date specific, communications that have had no adjustment to copy (as far as you can tell). My point being that, either way, F-Atari seem (to me) to have either avoided or sanitized any commitment to a delivery date for Backers.
  10. I think they have sucked the Australian distributor right in to their little con-sole Ponzi scheme ... it will be interesting to see how slow on the uptake they will be.
  11. Canada’s retail is a little unusual ... when the best department store is a Tire Shop, it’s understandable that French Atari wouldn’t know where to start LOL!
  12. One thing is certain: French ATARI are very good at saying one thing, then reinterpreting it to mean the opposite later. They never correct the record or respond to a specific question ... I am also starting to wonder if the dedicated few are actually on ATARI‘s payroll in one way or another ... social media consultants or similar.
  13. I’m a little surprised that it appears as though ATARI has gone through all of their public statements and removed any specific mentions of dates. perhaps I have imagined it, but I am certain they had made statements of specific dates for launch in November - these seem to have now disappeared. if true, this is beyond ethically questionable, it is deliberate and systematic deceptive conduct.
  14. Release dates at Walmart and Gamstop appear to have disappeared, as have any promises about guaranteed delivery dates. Wikipedia now says Backers will be getting theirs at the same time as the Walmart release: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atari_VCS_(2020_console) Release date November 27, 2020 (Walmart & Indiegogo backers) December 24, 2020 (Gamestop)
  15. The red flags were there before we put our money down ... many were screaming not to invest in it. i did not listen LOL!
  16. Funny thing is the power block outputs DC not AC and it should declare how many volts input is needed
  17. I’m wondering if Frédéric Chesnais is the paint chip eating Tammy/name changing/hyperscan/nut job? might explain a fair bit?
  18. I love my Nvidea ... and I suspect the graphics chip is seriously superior to the VCSs onboard solution.
  19. Yes and their language here can easily be reinterpreted... note that the joystick 🕹 can now be used as the reason why units are not shipped in October... I’m betting a November delivery at best ... which technically means they have missed, yet another, self declared delivery date.
  20. But what if you lose your doorstop? Surely RFID would come in handy? ... or would you just buy another, cheaper, doorstop from the bargain bin at GameStop?
  21. I’m actually expecting them to declare “flood”: We have experienced a preponderance of water that has frustrated and delayed transport of cornsoles! There’s all this water between the factory and our shipping facility in the U.S.. yes, I typed cornsoles by accident, then decided it was fitting as after consoleting George Forman, the VCS shell now opens so you can add your own corn slurry to make Taco Shells
  22. Do you really think the world is ready for a Pocket VCS? hang on ...
  23. Indy Doors often turn out to be simple canvas tent flaps ... kinda soft taco compared to real hard shell taco’s.
