My CycloDS was ordered on 6th October and I have had nothing but excuses from TC for over:

88 days (and I finally got my CDSE)

THE END

I am not saying where I ordered from as it is not the online shop fault but TC for not actually sending the CycloDS (black) yet

The black CycloDs was only supossed to start shipping 15/12, but it was Saturday, wich isn't a bussiness day, also i think the black CycloDs's manufacturing is a bit late so, you might have to wait a bit more.

No the shipping date keeps being moved, originally it was a "couple of" weeks from my order date. It may not even be TC's fault, however as they are the ones who keep giving the resellers lies instead of actual delivery dates ....

I have posted this in TC forums (ban time again I suspect)


You know what is really annoying?

Yeah, I realized the other week that the expected arrival of black evo stock was on a weekend. Depending upon who they use for shipping to retailers they COULD actually get them on Saturdays as they'd probably be a large enough shipment that the cost difference between "fast" delivery and "normal" delivery would be negligible.

@MadBob:
Too bad that you couldn't make that image javascript (or something) controlled such that you wouldn't have to manually update it...

I have been searching for a "Time Since" counter and this is the best I could come up with

I found lots of count down timers but what use are they? I have absolutely no idea when it's coming.

I have been sat on a SDHC 6 GIG card for months now (not literally)

I even ordered a DSTT out of pure boredom.

ouch 73 days, and i thought me waiting for a dual shock 3 controller for 27 days is bad enough, it's not stuck at customs or something? and can you buy the black cyclo ds now or is it still delayed? they announced it months ago but you still can't buy it anywhere.

The vendors say after the new year now for the black evos...

@MadBob
Ah. Had no clue as to where you'd gotten that, just figured that you had tossed something together fairly quickly...

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    but that's a long shot

    i think only the red mario kart edition phat was v5
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space
