Status Update December 24th, 2013


The Staff/Developers here at GCW would like to wish everyone a Safe and Happy Holiday's.

 We just got a great Christmas Eve surprise from the local print shop the smaller proper CE/FCC/WEEE Sticker we need to start shipping the consoles.

As for Justin Baze's question yes a sample was sent and it looked right the end product did not. So we went with a local printer that did banner work for us for PAX East back in March 2013 to print them. They came out great and we will resume shipping the evening of December 26th, 2013.

      Hello GCW people,

      I tried contacting you through your website but have not received any reply. So, I am trying through the Kickstarter comments page. I supported your venture with this game console idea and was expecting, as others were, to receive my pledged console by the end of the year. I have gone through your emails to supporters about the delays but feel that you should, by now, have completed the mailings, of which I have not received.
      Could you help by clarifying the situation or sending in my expected console.

      Beaux, Justin, whomever. Jan 19th, still no word on those units, it has been months now since you claimed to have shipped all of the USA units. And plenty of time to cross the us a few times since the 2nd. Has anyone out there actually received units?

      From Justin: "For information on individual orders, we've set up an account at I should state that this account will be managed by representatives of GCW, but not exclusively by Justin Barwick. Questions and comments (both positive and negative) are welcome, and we will try our best to get back to you as soon as we can. You may use this contact as a sounding board if you wish, but only emails containing questions specific to your order will guarantee a timely response."

      David, a quick buzz through the records found that your unit was somehow placed with the EU orders... We found it and will be putting it in the mail for you this evening. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    5. Creator David Welch on January 1, 2014

      Are there any other USA contributors that did not get their units? Or am I the only one?

    6. Creator Florian on January 1, 2014

      So, are units being sent out to EU countries? Haven't heard anything. Thanks.

    7. Creator Atsushi Hatsukano on December 29, 2013

      I think actual status of shipping is same as EU ,so might be still 500+ units are suspended.(may be more less? coz. he will continue to shipping from 26th DEC.)

      Update #71 from December 2nd said , "While the Asian, South American and Australian orders continued to ship, the European shipments had to be stalled". Sounds like the units to Japan should've been shipping this whole time but you're not the first to ask so hmmm.....

    9. Creator KevinSensei on December 26, 2013

      So will units be shipping to Japan? Lots of talk about the EU conformity and (most?) Americans already have theirs. Was really hoping to have this for Christmas. An update on this would be nice. A shipping confirmation would be better.

      I think you mean "Your grammar" Hans, not just "Grammar".

    12. Creator Justin Barwick on December 24, 2013

      Not when I'm in a hurry and making post via smartphone.

    13. Creator Hans Kokx on December 24, 2013

      Grammar isn't a strong suit, is it?
