Collectorvision Phoenix Early Access status updates?

Recommended Posts

I can't believe that we are in April already, but I was wondering what is happening with the early access for the Phoenix? Is April still a target month for getting these out? Is there a timeframe of when it will be sent out in April?

Yes, we had some delays but Early Access should be shipped by the end of April

The other thread said it should be any week now and the regular release in late August.

The only missing part of the puzzle is finalizing the Firmware 
Other than that, everything else is done

I'll let Brian (bmack36) give you more details

bumpity bumpa bump :)

 

I'm also very surprised on the need to finalize the firmware impacting on the early access.  I incorrectly assumed part of the point for the early access was that we got to also experienced a working state maybe not final Phoenix firmware (since you stated before the ability to update the firmware is built in … like adding FPGA cores), therefore still giving you a chance to provide the early access owners with the hardware AND allowing you to work on the firmware for the full release and simply updating the firmware for the EA systems.

 

I'm cool with a delay, we want a working system after all and thankfully I'm not low on hobby's to keep me busy ;).  I do have other concerns but I'll leave that for another day

Excellent, love progress pics! :)  

 

"The official CollectorVision Phoenix Launch is going to happen this August 9th (to 11th) in Phoenix, AZ at the Game on Expo*. "  Does this mean this is when the early adopters will also start getting their Phoenix console?

It could even be a bit earlier than that! :)
We just don't want to give a solid release date, just in case...

That's very fair and the right way to go.  When you know for sure the date, then spring it on us (but still very cool to know it's possibly coming sooner rather than later).  We didn't see any post by Brian, was there something specific worthy of an update to mention on the firmware?

 

Is the regular edition still supposed to come out in August?

Trust me, we all can't wait to say:  ''We're shipping!'' :)

 

As for Brian, I can't speak for him, but I know the Phoenix team is super busy at work
