Retro News & Chat / Re: The Retro VGS is now the COLECO Chameleon!

Just posting on here again to say that I'm not too surprised that this turned out to be a scam. I imagine everyone here was as skeptical about this product as I was as the developer didn't really seem to have a plan for the product.

I think it's gonna have a lot of great games that really need to be on carts to seem like they're in the right place.  Assaulter, for instance.  It looks like a Neo Geo or suped-up SNES game but plays on Androids and other systems.  Shovel Knight comes to mind.

Why would any indie developer bother with the additional cost? What sort of audience would they gain that they wouldn't already have from PC or console? I highly doubt we'll see indie games ported to the system (aside from maybe a handful).

It reminds me how much of a waste of resources it truly is to play a NES or Sega Master System game on a $700 game system at hundreds of watts.  I don't think it's wrong to get all of your favorite systems emulated on the console you just bought.  Especially if you replace the last one you bought with whatever just came out.  It can seem wasteful to get one of those new machines IF you only plan to download retro.


That's why devices such as Android phones and GCW-Zero exist. I mean even my smartphone from 2010 can emulate Genesis and SNES games. Most people probably don't want to spend another $150-$200 on a machine just to play classic games when they already have a PC or phone that is capable of doing so already.

I'm going for it when it comes out regardless and would like to see some old company names from back in the day.  Maybe Konami or Capcom, or even Sega could pop out some programs for it!
Never going to happen. Why should they waste their time on this machine that'll inevitably have a small fanbase. The opportunity cost of developing for the system is far too great to be an option. It's far more likely homebrew enthusiasts will flock to the system more than anything.

Just look at the Ouya!
The Ouya is considered to be a massive failure and horrible disappointment and is used consistently on why Kickstarter isn't a perfect platform. It massively under performed in every area and they've already discontinued the product after only a year after release.

Overall, the more and more I read about this new console, the less intrigued I am and the more worried I feel this will end up becoming just like the Ouya.

I'm impressed the modding community for the Dreamcast is still going strong. Keep up the good work!

I may just pick one up solely to make a Coleco emulator in FPGA. I can only imagine the headaches I'll endure though  :20:

$200 price point wouldn't be too bad, the main problem would be attracting developers to the system.

If only this were true... Although I'd prefer a Dreamcast 2, Atari are welcome back in my books!
Dreamcast 2 would only be great if they still had the original developers at Sega (i.e Smilebit & other good developers that have since left). As it stands right now, Sega doesn't exactly have any good development team left.

Thanks for the input, Shadowrunner.  Are the original models available at retailers or only through places like Ebay?

I've seen the original model on Amazon so they are still out there, but I would imagine if you walked into a store you would only find the new system. If it's the first one it should say it has an OLED screen, where as the new one has a LCD screen.
When I was looking around last christmas, I couldn't really find an original Vita for a decent price. The new Vita isn't bad at all (it has a better battery life and the screen isn't nearly as bad as people once though). If you can't find the original model, I'd recommend getting the Slim Vita.

I own a Vita and tbh, even with PS+, I rarely use it. It's simply too big and has very limited space (8gb memory card) leaving me with feeling like I don't have many options for when I do bring it with me.

I mostly play retro games.  I do have a PSP and a DS which are more "modern" but I don't own any of the newer consoles like the PS4 or the Xbox One.  I guess if you consider OUYA and some of the  mobile games modern (there are some very nice ones), that's the modern stuff I play.
I love my PSP Go simply for the fact that it allows me to play all of the old game systems I need. Plus, full PS1 compatibility is great.
