Did you actually read the comments? FFS, the GCW evangelists on here are getting more clueless with each passing day!
Listen, nobody was complaining. Nobody was "disrespecting the devs". Nobody was "spitting on the community" or whatever. It was people discussing a subject in a matter of fact way on an internet forum, a forum which isn't even dedicated to the GCW and has multiple active sub sections where people don't get so butthurt when you talk about their consoles' shortcomings.
Personally I couldn't give a f**k if the Zero got PS1, N64 or whatever but there are plenty of people who do. People who bought the thing off Kickstarter or that Ithic kickscammer guy expecting it to (direct quote from both) "emulate the game consoles we grew up with" and then found out it didn't do as described. Maybe you should "show some respect" to those people.
Maybe let people discuss things properly in a calm manner (it is a forum after all) rather than crying when people say things which don't fit in with your views. Nobody needs GCW cheerleading, not at this stage.
+1 to this post.
Like I said in my post, I like my GCW for what it is in it's current state. I also don't care much for PSX or N64 emulation, because the only games you're going to enjoy with that control set-up are the games that don't require dual-analog (PSX), or ports from arcade games or other consoles (which are already emulated on the GCW).
But people want it, and yes, it was "implied" by the initial KS campaign, especially with the first batch of released teaser videos (for example by qbertaddict1
showing choppy PSX emulation).
No one was "disrespecting" anyone. My point was that people need to research what this device can actually do, and decide if it's the right one for them. Managing expectations is the key here
, even if you're a hopeful fanatic. The GCW is great for the non-3D consoles, and if it so happens that we get some devs enthusiastic about emulating PSX and N64, then awesome! The more the merrier! That doesn't mean we should stop showing interest in getting these types of features.
Personally, my only disappointment with the console is the lack of HDMI support currently
(I can live with squeaky buttons), since it's been over 2 years since the initial KS campaign promise. Which is one of the key features I made the decision to back it. Especially since the stretch goals were in support of getting this feature, so it's definitely something that should be delivered on, which hasn't come yet. <my fingers are still crossed>
