    I suspect someone told them about the Oyua and Steam boxes. They being stubborn decided to go ahead and figure it out as they went along, then Indigogo required them to provide evidence that this thing has a chance.

    serious they advertised it as a open linux system so its basicaly a linux computer with hdmi out and an atari 2600 emulator installed, seriously if they even wanted to try they should have made something like a mini console with lets say an "expansion port" so you could buy more games if they ever emulate other atari systems like arcade, atary linx and atary jaguar and such.But making it an open LINUX system on the advertisement just means its a linux pc... with an emulator and some games installed lol.
