    First of all, sorry for the delays and thanks for your patience and support.
    Our final 2.0 firmware will be released soon. We can't give an exact date yet,
    as we can find some bugs while testing in depth the firmware on various consoles
    versions and region, but it won't be long, only days away now.




    i even left in my typos and email address im betting on the 21st being the day they release as it will have been exactly a month after their teaser

    That exact email has been sent since January. As in, exact wording. "Released soon" means nothing.

    Wow!
    I feel like for the past 3 weeks, every time I log in I have to say "You're an idiot!" at least 10 times a day, and this is one such occasion.

    I hope you're right, but I doubt it. Gateway is known for being very selective in the wording of their communications. They never make it a point to give exact release dates. Sadly, it's "business as usual" now until we hear something more specific from the team themselves.

    aXXo Were you trying out for the "Douche of the Day" award? Because if so, you got it my friend! :D

    That doesn't mean a few days.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    They mentioned to me, either a few days or by the end of the week. In worse case scenarios, early next week. Have some patience folks, we'll see soon enough.

    This is what I mean by the team being selective in their wording. Their response does not say for sure when it'll be released. There's always a "but." either literally or figuratively, in any of their communications where they talk about their expected release date.

    Saturosias This wasn't directed at you specifically. I quoted your post to demonstrate to other readers the point I was trying to get across.

    Yay! At least I didn't win "Idiot of the day"! We have so many contenders to choose from today! ;) I'm just pretty miffed that there hasn't been any activity from Gateway for more than a month, not since they released that multi-rom video, and only e-mails and junk rants since then.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Gateway sucks at PR. They should have one person handle that, and only that, and have the devs to stick to devving.

    I bet if anyone sends an e-mail with only the words "Helix Fossil", they'll send the exact same answer.

    I wish these forums had a "violently love" button to click.

    I actually think that is their problem, they only have one person to handle PR. And that one person apparently thinks we're idiots and can make up pretty much anything they want about why there is bricking code in the latest release, and belittling both legitimate customers with bricks as well as mocking clone users. They should probably get professional PR help at this point, since it's obvious that they don't think much about the people who actually give them money.

    I have a great idea, instead of posting in other threads lets just communicate by making new threads.

    Can we please start a new topic for each response... Getting all this information in one thread makes no sense...

    Don't hold your breath, hombre. I got the exact same message back in mid-January. They have thousands of people asking them about the release date, so no wonder. With that being said, I haven't touched the Gateway cartridge since the whole brick epidemic, and decided to wait for 2.0 final, so it would be nice to finally get it. I'm not expecting to get it "any day now", though.

    The release is only seconds away!

    A few million seconds perhaps.
