Same here. Not sure how this is being handled but you’d have thought they’d have shipped the Founders editions all together. 

 

They sent an email saying they were split between 2 boats a while ago.  2nd boatload should be this/next week if that schedule holds.

 

That's what I was referring to in my previous post.

Curious video popped up on my YouTube feed (from the Evercade affiliate who reverse engineered the cartridge format) which shows off a patched Namco Museum running on the VS console:

 

 

And in the description he links what seems to be Evercade's official site while saying the cartridge patch will be available to download from them directly.

 

Popping over there, the latest news story states:

 

"News from: 01.12.2021

Evercade VS has been hacked!

It is already possible to play unlicensed games on Evercade.

Retro Rulez uploaded a post on Facebook today showing the Evercade VS with the game Sonic The Hedgehog."

As I understand it, Evercade's licensing agreement with Namco doesn't include home usage, hence that cartridge being blocked for use on the Vs console...a block which Evercade seem to be happy to be bypassed "unofficially", according to the dev.

Well that's annoying, thought that was due out this month :(

 

Pre-orders were going to open in November, but was put back to after the VS launch so they could concentrate on that. #23 looks really cool, some interesting and unusual titles.

Got an email saying prices are going up next year. Fair enough, I can imagine it creeping to £19.99 next year. £15 a cart was ridiculously good value, at the same time I think £20 should be the ceiling for such a niche product. Not sure how it would effect hardware prices, most places are selling the handheld for under RRP anyway.

Prices are going up on the handheld as well. The Namco, Technos and Oliver Twins carts are all going off sale as well. 15 carts are planned next year with 9 already being signed off.

Where is the best place to pick those up before they go?
