    So to start out 2016 we had the Dreamcast 2 and now we have the Coleco Chameleon. Mike Kennedy launched a Indiegogo starter for a console that run run cartridge based games in the retro style for the low, low price of $300.

    The motherboard turned out be a capture card. As soon as the public found that out they instantly removed the photo from their facebook page.

    The original funding goal of the Chameleon was $2,000,000

    Wasn't this discovered a couple weeks ago?
    Not like it matters anyway, whoever kept trusting those guys after they tried to pass a reshelled SNES Jr. as a new console deserves to be scammed. A fool and his money are soon parted.

    I feel sorry for those who donated to that scam. One of my best friends did. Just emailed him about it. I wonder how he will feel
