Got about 65 pre-orders so far, so the rate has slowed a bit. Also that's only about half of the people from the first sign-up list I had. Hopefully we'll cross at least 100 by end of Jan.

I have not looked into the VCS at all. I have released one set of Lynx games for the Evercade handheld though. It's a great little system with a nice variety of cartridges so far.

Well the VCS has like 11k people waiting to buy stuff in the Atari Store. I am going to buy my IS3 when I get paid if I ever do I hate being a contractor. The VCS is a linux system and most of the games are from are Unity . No telling how many preorders are out there for the system but I would guesstimate probably double what the backers are and for a major software company for like 206 audience but seriously 20k audience on a digital system with like 18 games in the store that is an opportunity waiting to be untapped. If you can put out a linux game then you can get in the store but otherwise, it is windows or something else and will not be Atari VCS native. Use Unity or target Linux and you can get in the Atari store and lookup on Google the Atari VCS development links and such.

When I order can I get it shipped to a different address then the Credit Card Billing Address? I did not see the option on the order page would I just let you know in a note?

Sure, put the updated address in the notes section of your order, then also send me a separate email just to be sure I see the request. Given I have 100+ orders to process, extra reminders will only help. :)

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The Texas power got deregulated and they messed it up real good they absolutely did nothing to try and protect the grid from weather
  • The Helper The Helper:
    basically they took away all the safeguards to save money and then the worst happened lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    ???
  • Ghan Ghan:
    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Nobody?
  • jonas jonas:
    Hi vypur85, long time no see
