Another ZX Spectrum device indiegogo fundraiser

"Last week we shipped a few units to some selected supporters who have had  unwavering  faith in us, and the response and comments on their Vega+ units has been uniformly joyful."

 

What responses and comments.  Did they keep all that joy to themselves .  And shipping a few to people they know, isn't that what everyone predicted wiould happen

Right. Translation: "to keep people quiet we are saying we sent a few units out to our cheer-leaders, they're really happy, take our word for it. Happy now?"

"Well, we have now proved all negative claims to be false. "

 

really? what about the claim that they repeatedly missed delivery dates...have they suddenly proved that to be false by literally going back in time and shipping the vega+s in Oct '16?

This whole story gets weirder and weirder every day.

 

Why would an "award-winning writer, director and producer" get involved in some bizarre internet spy/secret agent shit that is essentially a petty internet vendetta against random people who are alleged to be bad mouthing a piece of consumer electronics that doesn't even exist?

It's so odd to comprehend that a company who are struggling to get a finished product out of the door and who are constantly hounded by disgruntled customers would piss ten grand up the wall to pay someone to take screenshots of a Facebook group full of said disgruntled customers.

 

What actual use or value are those screenshots? None at all.

Your customers are pissed off because you took their money and gave them nothing in return, it's not rocket science.

the brass balls on this:

 

 

no need to apologise?

lying to gareth corfield for the last two years?

 

Summer 2016 "gaz, mate! RCL haven't delivered yet"

Winter 2016 "gaz, mate! RCL haven't delivered yet"

Summer 2017 "gaz, mate! RCL haven't delivered yet"

Winter 2017 "gaz, mate! RCL haven't delivered yet"

Summer 2018 "gaz, mate! RCL haven't delivered yet"

 

2 years have  passed, RCL haven't delivered. Despite 14 missed release dates.

 

"we're delivering now,  we don't have any actual proof, you just have to take our word for it. Yes, we know we've given delivery dates before. Usually around the time of shareholders meetings or investigations by regulatory bodies and or Indiegogo, and currently we have all three, but this is unrelated to all that. Honest"

 

 

delusional.

You'd think the first thing RCL would do is post as many images of boxes about to go out, box contents, and all that, so I'm calling bullshit, either bullshit that they're delivering or bullshit console. It's dead easy, RCL: prove us wrong!

So I guess everyone who received one of these bad boys is too busy playing the limited range of public domain games it comes with to post images of how happy they are.

There have been no negative comments about the units, that must mean it's a resounding success!

I like how this is their 2nd update titled "Finally...". the last one was 3 months ago

 

btw also from scanning their old updates, what about this from the update of february 5th 2018:

 

Quote

 

Q4: You haven't paid any money to Great Ormond Street Hospital as promised. Why?

 

A: We did – and it has been publicly confirmed by GOSH's Head of Fundraising. Don't believe all you read in some online press or on social media. We’re also working with a second charity, and when we are contractually allowed to say who this is, we will.

 

who is the 2nd charity then? I mean we all know that charities are notoriously publicity-shy organisations by nature (ahem), but it's been months now...
