Kickstarter project indieGO!
« on: December 28, 2015, 11:38:42 am »
Backed this one a couple of days ago:

I already have nice retropie set up, but this project promises to run Odroid XU4 which is fourfold more powerful.

I like the idea behind this console. It's basically a clone console with support for original CDs, which is something I'm surprised hasn't really been tried before.

But I just don't trust them. The project was actually on IndieGoGo like 3 years ago and the creator earned a bad reputation for being incredibly hostile towards criticism. I'll pass for now and hope someone else will have the same idea but with better execution.

Wow! Thanks for the info! Any chance you have a link to an old project (I couldn't find it in Google). Maybe I'll need to back off this one.

Here's the original project: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/indiego-a-proper-video-game-console#/

Here's where I heard about the bad management in the first campaign: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/235430-how-has-this-not-been-posted-yet-retro-vgs/page-186#entry3396708

Cheers for that! Changed my reward to digital download for Odroid. It's only 29 and will be able to make my own console. All I need is OS. Should've done it in the first place =)

Y'know, that's not a bad idea...

Any reason why you chose Odroid over Pi? I'm thinking it's more powerful, right??
