In the end it was nothing more than a $100 thumb drive, and the delays were Neverending. I'm pretty sure a ton of people never got their wristband or their money. But it's been a while so...

Is that the Atari games watch? It was supposed to be delivered last September and even now nothing has been physical has been made or released.
They are now talking about refunds on the crowdfunding site.


It didn't look like that when I read about it, but who knows. Maybe they updated it to keep people happy. The one I saw didn't have a screen. It looked more like a simple rubber version of those slim FitBits that didn't have a screen on them.

A Linux box with built-in old licensed games and tacky, "nostalgia" motif isn't a scam. Trying to pass it off as a proper console is.

There's a rumor that they don't have a working prototype yet. At the very least they haven't shown one. That's where the scam argument comes from.

My advise: don't fund this, and don't buy tickets on Pan Am in 1999. ;)

BTW the upcoming Atari Flashback Classics comes with 50 more games then the Atari VCS Atari Vault and is physical. More reasons to pass on the Atari VCS scam!

Apparently AtariVCS is backed by snowflakes who can't handle being called out for their BS.

The Mere fact that the Atari VCS people have resorted to using a Trump term of Fake News as their response to RGT85 pretty much confirms everything he said is correct.

Hey I like the Ouya. I have one set up in my office and it still works well. Of course, I rooted the thing and loaded Google Play store on it so I can get some actual decent games but I digress.

I think it was just marketed incorrectly.
