    Wiikey Update delayed, and delayed again

    "We will post the update as soon as it is delivered to us by the developers."








    [​IMG]



    The Wiikey team have responded to annoyed fans via the official website. The update scheduled for release on the 15th still has not been released six days after the provided date. There have been many cries of fake afoot as some believe the Wiikey team have run off with their money and were never intending to release an update.



    The biggest problem here is not wild suspicions like that but rather a lack of communication with the team that results in these suspicions in the first place. The team has broken the silence on the update but provides no alternative release date.





    Go back to playing whatever you were playing, this may take some time.

    I thought it'll take some time when I read the wiikey teams response. So much for the update being ready and taking 1 week to test. It wouldn't be too bad if they listed all the features the new update was going to have.

    It's like the CycloWiz situation all over again. Just give it some time!

    They painted themselves in a corner by giving an actual date. Even with saying "around".

    Telling too many specific features traps them as well. If they run into trouble testing one, they can just remove it since we don't know it would have existed...

    why is it a big deal if an update is delayed if noone knows what the update will accomplish anyways? there is no need for an update just for the sake of an update is there?

    is there any idea what is to be added, or what people want added?

    Since they claim to be working on an update which seems to take forever to be released, it had better be good, those morons.

    Team Wiikey have never been on time....Remember before the wiikey came out...
    "We're shipping next week"
    One week later...
    "Oh no, wait....Next week!"

    These messed everyone around at the start, what made you think they'd be any better from then on?

    I think a lot of people just want the GC audio fix.

    All this "improved region free" sounds like nonsense to me, but we'll see.

    No complaints here. The WiiKey plays all my current backups just perfectly fine; so I don't mind waiting for an "update", since I doubt I would benefit from any of the declared changes.

    This is strange. First they "received positive news from the developers. The long-awaited upgrade to wiikey is basically finished". And now this... [​IMG]

    best thing they can do is keep their gobs shut and just release it as a surprise!

    6 days for me due to my timezone. I only saw the thread you made after I posted this on the portal. Your thread was made today.

    I live in the future, what are you going to do about it? [​IMG]

    My Wiikey plays all the games I've burned so far so I can't complain.
    Sure an update would be nice, expecially if one day I find a game that doesn't work but could be fixed, but really there are lots and lots more priority in my life than the Wiikey update.
    When it's ready it's ready, I'm sure it will be on the front page and I won't miss it.
    Until then, I got better things to do then crying and bitching around. [​IMG]

    I gotta say, it's damn sloppy to give out dates if you can't keep up.
