Sinclair ZX Vega+ faces crowdfunding nightmare - briefly
(hx) 06:28 PM EST - Mar,10 2017 - Post a comment
A crowdfunding campaign can be a great way for projects to raise funds while allowing fans to influence the design of a product. But handing over your money comes with an element of risk, and, as was the case with the Zano mini-drone, things can go badly wrong. The latest example of a campaign that hasn't delivered on its promises is the Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega Plus Console on Indiegogo - a handheld based on the popular ZX Spectrum home computer from the 80s. It features an LCD screen and comes with 1000 preloaded licensed games, with many more supposedly available for download.

But the excitement quickly came to an end when Indiegogo halted any further fundraising because of delays in delivering the units (they were meant to go into production in Summer 2016). There was also a lack of communication between the company responsible for the Vega Plus – Retro Computers Limited (RCL) - and the near 5000 backers. RCL has blamed the delay on unexpected issues with the console buttons. It said the first units would ship in February this year, but none have been sent out. Unsurprisingly, the campaign’s Indiegogo page is inundated with angry backers demanding refunds. RCL claims it hasn’t been able to respond due to legal action brought against it by former directors Paul Andrews and Chris Smith.
