With just one week before release, you would expect all those that backed the Gamestick to have received their product and have been happily playing along on their new device - but this simply isn't the case.
I really wanna read this story smh...
They fixed the link
Direct link is this but it's working fine for me http://www.gaminguys.com/ne... its not a site or link issue on GaminGuys and server is dedicated so speedy.
this is pretty lousy for this poor dude. makes me wonder when the first class action lawsuit will happen against a kickstarter project with broken promises
You actually have to sign an arbitration agreement before you back a project and there are other rights you sign away as well. This prevents people from suing kickstarter as they're just middlemen for the whole process. With that being said, Kickstarter also has a big legal team that will no doubt go after projects that were funded and not delivered.
Thanks for the info. I've actually backed a couple of projects, but shame on me I've obviously never read that agreement
That's a damn shame
I hate that so much, i too wanted to read this. And now I'm just left with Sadness.
how did this get approved?
damn thats dirty but that controller looks kinda cool but my wii already has snes nes sega etc so im good
Why not take it up with Kickstarter? The bundles were clearly misleading which also means he can start a lawsuit. But I guess it costs too much money to do such a thing...
Things like this or worse was bound to happen with some kickstarters. I would be absolutely pissed off if I was in this position.
I'm waiting for this crowdfunding fad to go away. I confess that I fell for it twice or thrice, but all Kickstarter projects I've seen either never get finished, or the results are bad.
This just means Gamestick is getting delayed if units are not shipping. Review units are prototypes I believe. I don't care its powered by Tegra 2 right? My PS1 could play games just as well as it can. No huge loss.
I don't see the retail versions being delayed. The date is still set as the 29th October. They should be delayed though, that I do agree with. Also Gamestick have confirmed that the units sent out for review are from the kickstarter production line so are not prototypes :/ They are the fully boxed retail versions as shown by certain members on Twitter using the #Gamestick hash.
