Err, Wonder are the mob that insinuated they would make a gaming phone, that morphed over the years to a game subscription service like Ouya trialed at one point.
I had been part of Wonders Alpha program and on their forum. After many year of delivering nothing and being hammered by all their community , they came up with that gaming OS service.
By then the whole community had deserted them.  I think they even shut down their forum.  
They tried to get Phone companies to pick up the OS and put on their phones. But no one touched it.  It was kind of pointless IMO

Now Atari has taken it up - Lol

 

Ah, so then they're a perfect match for Atari SA.

Why don't they just give this poor bloke his VCS. For all he cares it could be an Atari branded dog sh!t and that would keep him happy. FFS i feel bad for him

Geeze I usually have a high tolerance for this stuff but I'm 7 min in and have to take a break. I get being a fan I don't get blind fanboyism....

 

I do hope he gets something and is happy with it. I guess he's never seen the Atari Flashback?

Yep it's actually borderline sad to watch what those assholes at AtariSA are doing to people like this. He's probably a really nice guy yet they pray on these type of people for money. AtariSA are no better then tech-support scammers, full of fake promises yet never deliver...

Wonder if Netflix has the documentary of them digging up the games for John to watch?

Some of the notable investors were: Nolan Bushnell and  Shakira

I'm pondering which one is the most relevant, especially when you take tacos into consideration. Also there are two spaces before "Shakira" which I find interesting.

It would be interesting to hear if he had been demanding a refund (in which case, good on you for getting it!) or if they forced one one just to get him out of their hair?


No, E.T. did not asked for a refund now… He felt his money he gave to Atari would be good invest. 
It was one Dollar - well spent money to be kept entertained for such a Long time... ;-)

The real invest for a "VCS Collector's Edition" plus additional controller was cancelled AND refunded before the money collecting time was over…

E.T. had seen all the red flags Atari was showing while collecting the money… 😎

Oh yes, I remember now. The Wonder Alpha was briefly discussed here in the summer of 2017. Then I made a follow-up post over a year later and noted pretty much nothing had happened. Regarding the deal with Atari, as we say in Swedish "kaka söker maka" (literally "cookie seeks mate"), that two similar parties attract to eachother. I understand it might have Danish-Norwegian origin, even references to the Greek philiosopher Plato and some English thinkers in the 16th century.

I personnaly interpreted it as a short reluctance to expose a high-profile artist.

"kaka" means "cookie" in Swedish?

Yup. I know what it means in other languages... When you run out of cookies, you can write "kaka slut" in broken language.

 

Anyway, since hips don't lie, can we expect Fred to shake his soon?

This thread was created on June 9, 2017. The Wonder Alpha thread was created on June 29, 2017. The Atari VCS might be 20 days ahead of the other project.

Latest email says you'll be able to play games either on the console or on mobile... So now it's going to be like the Nintendo Switch? 🤔

I can just see "Atari" going after that other Wonder...

I know it is a Photoshop job, but perhaps now is the time to also enable Stevie Wonder as their spokesperson.

Talk about putting the Wonderbox before the horse. 

 

How are they going to have time to release a console if they're launching hotels and mobile services? 😅
