Amico was pretty much DOA, and this just further proves it. At this point, it's too late in almost any case for Tommy or any one else to turn this around. If the Amico ever releases, it would be lucky to hit 1 million units.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

An Evercade Vs does everything Amico promised and is only $99 is on sale now at Amazon. I'm tired of long-winded posts about this scam, talked about this shit to death on other forums. It's not that there is one thing wrong with Amico. Everything is wrong with Amico. Top to bottom. They did nothing right and it was a stupid idea in the first place.

Amico's price tag was always going to be too high for that family entertainment impulse buy that Intellivision Entertainment claimed they were going after.  Now that their most recent SEC filing released information that $100 of every Amico sold was going to be paid to Sudesh Aggarwal until his $810,000 loan was repaid, it finally makes sense for why the Amico went from originally targeting a $149-$179 pricepoint and then ballooned to a $249 price that was well over the cost of its parts.  The Amico was in trouble well before IE changed CEO's.  For the Amico to have ever had the remotest chance of succeeding, it needed to come out 2 years ago and at a low price.  During the pandemic when families were isolating at home and while Sony and Microsoft have been struggling to get sufficient numbers of their latest consoles out, this could have been an option for some people.  Unfortunately, it has been so mishandled from start to finish that it has more than likely missed its best window for even niche success.  In the SEC filing they stated they will need 2 more investment rounds of $5 million each just to keep the lights on for another 7-9 months, but they don't even have 1 finished console after over 2 years of fundraising accruing $7-9 million in debt.  Yeah, this was completely mismanaged from the very beginning and the warning signs were there for anyone who was actually looking.

The Ouya sold less than 200,000 units, and had way more hype behind it.  I think 1 million units was beyond their best-case scenario if they had done everything perfectly from announcement to launch.  At this point, they'll be lucky to get their pre-ordered founders editions out.  And then if they are really lucky, maybe sell another few thousand through Gamestop and Best Buy (Canada - because they aren't even listed on Best Buy's US site).

He has ties to Saudi Arabia.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
