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!!!

Oh for sure I understand delays because of the virus, but I still think they are handling this very poorly. Funstock was the only retailer who was there day one. If sales had flopped no other retailer would have signed on. Regardless of delays, they should have made sure that Funstock received their shipment first. Even if that meant other retailers and countries had to wait a little while longer. Take care of the people who took a chance and put down money last year.


That said, I don't know to do. I really do like the look of the black one better but when will I get it? According to the latest email my order should ship in the next two weeks. With all the delays in shipping from outside the country it will probably be another month after that before I actually see it. That's late June and I could have plain white one next week. . .

You make a good point that if Funstock was the first retailer, why are they not getting it first? Could it be a matter of volume?  Maybe they have a larger volume of orders and that is delaying their shipment further?  Perhaps the Canadian retailer ordered fewer units and they chose to send those first.  I'm just guessing but even that would not be the best thing to do.

Yeah I assume it's a volume issue like you said. Still not right but not much I can do about it.

Well, I went the crazy route and ordered a second one before the first has even arrived lol.



I'll probably just leave the black one sealed and keep it as a collectible. Who knows, it could be worth something some day. I have a couple more games coming with the other one too so I just got the starter pack plus the Piko collection.

Played it a bit last night and I really like it. Only complaint is the cartridges are REALLY tight! Putting them in isn't too bad but taking them out I though I was gonna break the thing. The cartridges need to be trimmed a little so they aren't so wide. Otherwise I like the size and the weight of it and the d-pad and buttons all feel good. :)

There's a couple logos that come up when you first turn it on but after that it's just like playing a cartridge on an old console. Everything is pretty much instant.

Couple more games arrived!



I have to admit when I first saw they were doing Namco collections I said pass, just cause I assumed it would have the same games that have been on every Namco collection since the PS1. Once I saw the list of games though I was pleasantly surprised. There are the classics for sure but there's a lot of games that I've never seen on their collections before.

Cool!  Looks like my Technos cartridge will be arriving before the console!  I can thank COVID-19 for that!  LOL
