I preordered the black one.  It looks sharp.  Really looking forward to it!

John Hancock has also posted a video of the Evercade.  Have a watch...

Game Sack has also reviewed the Evercade but this review isn't as positive...

Yes, but I wanted to share the review anyway.  Helps to have both perspectives.

Totally agree bud, I suspect the thing has loads of negatives but lets see because I can only see the positives at the moment.

My only concern from watching the second video is that there appear to be some emulation issues.  Those should be fixable with firmware updates, though.  The other complaints were mostly about the game libraries themselves and that I don't care about.  That's pure opinion and not some factual like the emulation sound issues that were noted during the video.

Yes, I got an email (well, two) about that!  Very cool.  :)

So being an early adopter is not always a good thing.

I pre-ordered day one from Funstock in the UK. At the time that was the only place selling them. Now there's a Canadian retailer selling them and for whatever reason they received their stock before anyone else, and they are now shipping. So I could have waited and ordered it locally and had it next week. Meanwhile, the boat with Funstock's shipment hasn't even arrived yet. . .

I understand the delay but still pretty disappointing that people ordering today will get it a couple weeks before I do. :(

Well, that's interesting and unfortunate.

Yes it is unfortunate. I could probably cancel my order and get one here but then I wouldn't get the black one. Guess I'll just have to wait.

That’s a real shame and should not happen. That’s a negative for sure.

I ordered the black one as well.  Given that's a limited edition, I'd wait for it.  This whole mess with COVID-19 is just affecting everything!!!
