Ha ha ha, october, :-D
@Pierre - I wouldn't worry about getting it before you leave. It's not happening, and given their current state of play I'd be surprised if it showed up before the 23rd... of October that is.
Whats the latest update ???
Hello guys, I was hoping to get my Gamestick before sept 12th because I'm leaving for Virginia Beach on that date, until sept 23rd. Since I won't have it for my trip (a shame, really!), can you try to find my adress with my user name and try to send it to me for end of september instead?
It wouldn't be a Kickstarter project if it wasn't delayed a number of times. Just so long as you don't try to overtake the Pebble.
Gareth, the stores are claiming 30th release date. The latest official update had mid September as when backers would have theirs.... Are you stating that we will get ours when it officially goes on sale? If we are lucky??
I'm tired of waiting and am kinda over the whole GameStick thing. Any way to cancel my order and get my money back?
"We have first units coming off the line next week and we hope to start shipping as soon as possible - we still very much expect you to have your GameStick by the end of this month"
Could we get an update, please? This radio silence is making us worried. And irritated. Again.
Mid September is nearly upon us... Soon will be the release date that every store is currently touting...
Where is the update?!?!?!??!
Guys! This is taking so long and longer than I thought! I just hope it eventually turns out to be as good as you claim it is..
Approaching a month after this post and no details on shipping... what's the word, folks? I've noticed no responses to backers posting on your fb, no new updates here and I've waited nearly a week for a response to a technical question submitted on your support site. Let's stop the social blackout... Thanks.
No updates reg. shipping backer units... yet another delay then!
It's a disgrace how PlayJam are treating their backers. I will NEVER spend another cent on anything from them.
I registered my account August, 17th.
Shipping should start end of August.
My Backer ID is 1661.
When 5.691 Backers should be delivered by mid September, i wonder where my Gamestick is!
Where is the next update to bring information about shipping?
When it´s delayed again, tell us!
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Still no email here. :/
So since Gamestop and Amazon are both selling this product at the end of September..is the general population going to get them before we do?
I read an article that claimed the units have been shipped, is that true?
I agree with Jonathan. I was there for the Pebble; backed that when I was 39, and it didn't land until I'd turned 41...!
In comparison, this is nowt.
Guys, calm down, delays of this kind are normal in kickstarters and in case of a product like this also a good sign that they care about quality over delivering speed. Believe me, you would not have wanted your product in April if you had the chance to compare it to what you will be getting now. Just give the guys their time to finish the product until it is solid. Kickstarter projects tend to be optimistic on the delivery dates, but something unexpected can always show up, like the manufacturing machines taking some time to be assembled. I'm sure nearly all of us will be happy when we receive the final product in September or the beginning of October.
gamestop now says september 30th btw. dont know if anyone else caught that.
got my email and registered >.< surprised to hear other people are still waiting for the email. I wasn't among the earliest of backers.
Same thing here, I have not received the registration email yet.
So... August is over in a week from tomorrow. Any more news when we will be receiving our Kickerstarter units? I completely understand delays and I haven't commented or emailed you all in an attempt to be patient but the last shipping date was mid to late August. If that's still valid that means I should get mine next week... or has it been pushed to September?
I appreciate the product/testing updates but please continue to include as accurate as possible shipping updates as well.
Btw, @Stephan, if you pay attention to and/or look at the previous updates, you will see that shipments of GameSticks have been delayed. This has been due to some complications that were unavoidable at the point that they came up, and their solutions will provide us with a better GameStick than originally planned. So thanks for giving us a better product, PlayJam, even if you can't properly write a good website for registration. But I realize that has very little effect on their ability to manufacture a device. I am hoping that the only reason the registration website is so poorly done is because they are focused on the GameStick itself.
I am having trouble with the birthdate as well. I must say that I am sorely dissapointed. I am losing some faith in the ability of these guys to code and program well. I have tried every browser on my iPhone, to no avail, and several times at that. I will give them that they fixed the main problem with mobile browsers, but I don't believe that that should have EVER been a problem in the first place.
I HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY GAMESTICK WHATS GOING ON????
PLEASE PROVIDE ME WITH AN UPDATE. THIS IS THE THIRD MESSAGE I LEAVE ON THIS BOARD. I SEE ALOT OF PEOPLE NOT GETTING THEIR DEVICES...DO WE GET A TRACKING NUMBER?
Have not received an email yet
Just an fyi, no registration email as of yet.
We now have well over 4,000 registered users so for the most part, registration seems to be working fine. We're fixing a few bugs on mobile browsers, and on the date of birth selection so we appreciate your feedback so far on that.
If you are still having problems entering your date of birth then please try using a mouse to point and click on the date selection - sometimes using arrow keys and the tab key doesn't pick up your input properly. Also, we still have some reports of IE not working as well it should, so Firefox and Chrome are still the preferred brewer choices right now - full screen mode works best.
If you still haven't received your registration email then please check your survey response and check that the email address you gave us is correct - we have had several messages from backers saying that they haven't received their registration email, only to discover that they requested it to a different address. Failing that, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the support team will be able to help you.. you should get a reply within 24 hours if not sooner.
Thank you for all the comments.
I have not received a registration email yet.
Done and done, definitely an issue with not being able to scroll to the 'confirm' button. Had to go to full screen.
I also have the same invalid date error as a couple folks below... what's going on, GameStick team?
Now seems mobile friendly but refuse to validate my date of birth ... Perhaps I'm to old to use gamestick ...
@ Daniel, have you tried full screen mode? I had a similar problem but it was just out of sight.
I received an email, but the linked site doesnt have no confirm button...
Haven't received the email, I was a backer.
@Patrick Anderson Those of us that don't use desktop operating systems are having problems, this is short sighted at the very least.
Fix your registration front end, its not that hard to enable the "scrollable" flag.
You keep putting nails in your own coffin, making it a pain for your backers to do a simple gamertag registration while data mining is annoying.
*wake up* you're running in shallow waters.
@GameStick - Browser shouldn't matter as I was able to register GS #2 with no issues. I was able to get the number 69 to work for #1, is that acceptable?
It's nice to see that we will soon have our Gamesticks :)
Yeah, I tried to do the registration on my iPhone(mind you, I used all but one browser installed on my iPhone), and the dropboxes would not allow me to select the correct numbers for my birthdate. I wouldn't care that much if I could at least select the correct year, but I was not even able to do that. The lists of dates will not scroll. As I do not have a working computer at the moment, this is important for me to be able to do this this way.
Lame. The registration form isn't mobile friendly.
@GameStick : Could you update us on the carrying case design ? i dont remember seeing anything so far. thank you
@Garrett Did you notice the day and month are switched (Day/Month/Year instead of the more 'American' Month/Day/Year)? That could be the cause of your error message.
i did not get any email !!!
The user registration form keeps saying I have an invalid birthdate. I'm not under 18, I'm using 1984 for crying out! Why are there so many problems with this registration form??
Does not receive user registration email. Do follow the issue. Thanks
Please disregard previous comment. I opened it up with a different browser and everything seems fine now.
I tried to register and it is telling me that my birthdate is invalid.
It could be also that it doesn't accept special characters in the password. But the message that is displayed is "missing information" on every field.
