Re: I'm a little in between with this...

Hi Sheluser,

I suggest you go back and read the article which is linked within this one. That article explains that there was a deal done with all of the games owners/publishers that the section of royalties that would have gone to them would instead go to charity. After an initial instalment of 20k going to the charity, nothing more has been paid out, even though conservative estimates state it should be at least another 30k going based on sales of the consoles (probably much higher).

What this article also points out is that there are a whole bunch of games and stuff included in the Vega which were not approved by the owners of those games. I.e. they added them without permission. Very dodgy behaviour.

When you read some of the background to this firm, it all begins to sound super dodgy... Anyway, I hope that helps clear things up for you.
