    You're the only one who is upset given your constant agressive antogonistic posts and name calling non stop.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    Good news. I got an email update from Amazon U.S. about my TG16 Mini. My expected shipping date is January 5, 2021.

    I wouldn't read to much into that. The release date on the item page is still Dec. 31, 2020, which is just a stand-in for "indefinite". The emails stating Jan. 5th were most likely triggered automatically by Amazon setting back their shipping dates a week, site-wide, for non-essentials in the face of Covid uncertainty. The TG-mini (I'm talking the actual US version) is now sold-out in Japan. That may have been Konami's total stock of TG-16 units. I'd say the chance of this ever even being released state-side is 50% at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if US pre-orders are cancelled here shortly.

    Unfortunately if that happens the prices will skyrocket on the secondary market. It may end up being just as expensive to obtain a mini as it is to collect for the actual TG-16.

    I wonder, were U.S. TG-16 units originally available on Amazon Japan, or did they become available only when Amazon U.S. delayed it? If Konami took stock intended for Amazon U.S. and sold it instead on Amazon Japan, then you're probably right about it never being released here. Still, they should honor existing pre-orders, though I can understand from a business perspective that Konami doesn't want to sit on thousands of units, waiting months for the Covid-19 crisis to pass, when they can get guaranteed money by selling them immediately on Amazon Japan.

    For $125 considering the system has quite a few good games on it, is still a deal compared to real TG-16 stuff.

    Anyone know if Snatcher on the system is in English?

    My preorder console just shipped, but my Turbo Tap now has no delivery date. Anyone else order a Turbo Tap or extra controller?

    I also got the notice from Amazon last week that my order has been updated and I would receive the console on the 28th or 29th. Then I get an update from Amazon yesterday telling me that my TG-16 Mini is now scheduled to arrive today?! Sure enough it shows that it is out for delivery on the order/tracking information. So those original pre-orders are happening and quicker than I expected at least.

    **UPDATE** Amazon dropped off my TG-16 Mini about 3 hours ago so...yeah!

    Is any other site going to be carrying these besides Amazon?

    eBay. Sadly it is an Amazon exclusive.
