Route20...I'm not sure what you aren't understanding. I provided the details and timeline above.

1. In March a teaser goes up. Limited information is provided because it is a teaser. No pre-orders or sales take place.

2. On 5/5, this last Monday, all Analogue Nt details are released and pre-orders are opened.

In other words, not a single pre-order or transaction took place until after all the details were released.

Please point me to where you said this machine contained the NESRGB on the 5th.

Great job trivializing something others care about, A+.


Hey I can but try.

There are less PS1 screen than Famicoms out there. Brand new ones are being used for portables, not 'ugly' ones. Who is defending them? Are you?

Obviously I have no idea how many systems AI plans to make, but I doubt it will make much of a dent in the 19+ million that were sold in Japan either, even if we guess that half of them have been destroyed along the way.

Route...I'm not sure what you are getting at. That information about the NESRGB was being withheld for some reason? I wanted people to think that RGB was being produced in a different way? I mean, this is beyond insane. I'm proud to use the NESRGB, it's absolutely amazing.

"NESRGB" is not listed in the copy for the same reason a hundred other technical terms are not listed. Because it's technical jargon to 99% of people. It's a marketing choice, not withholding information. Whether or not you agree with that being the best idea is a different issue.

As I've said, if you want to have a conversation about the technical aspects of the Nt...I'd love to. That's something we've poured our hearts into.

I think saccing in any form sucks. I think this particular form really sucks because it's being used to make something that -->in my opinion<-- is absurd, garish, tasteless,pick your adjective. I understand that not everybody feels that way. I'm not sure why the fact that some people care about things gets other people so worked up. I think the stuff comparing it to the holocaust is beyond fucked up so don't put that on me.

I would argue you are worked up more than anyone else that has been participating. Most were merely responding to discussion points.

If it wasn't then why did you not answer this question that was being asked repeatedly until the 9th? Why did you not answer the saccing question until the day preorders opened, and then in a tiny FAQ section that some people who potentially cared would not have seen?

Hey, I never denied I'm passionate about my hobby. I'm totally worked up about this, I think it sucks! I just don't get what's so bad about caring.

Route, you're asking the same questions over and over again. I've already answered several times. It's coming off as very unreasonable, especially since you are coming here from posting lies on tumblr about being a scammer.

The FAQ section is listed and linked at the top of the pre-order / store page. It is in the first section you see.

Christoph I apologize for how they are treating you on Neo-geo.com, Its one thing to be critical of your choices with your new product, but now they are just taking attacking you personally and trashing your CMVS for no good reason. Thats not cool, and I hope we here at Racketboy can be better than that and keep it civil.
