The Retro VGS was not expected to support any manner of online connectivity whatsoever, meaning all hardware and software released would have been the final product, and would not have the ability to update after release.
On March 8,Retro VGS pulled down their online social media presence after Coleco Holdings had withdrawn their support and involvement from the project. The Retro VGS team was the subject of criticism for its reversal on several of its early promises, including its change in crowdfunding venue from Kickstarter to Indiegogo.
The Retro VGS team failed to show hardware prototype or design specifications, a requirement for most Kickstarter promotions. The proposed software for the machine was criticized for not being unique enough from digital releases on other platforms to justify a cartridge release at higher prices. The cartridge-only distribution model does not allow for updates including bug-fixing or additional content, which led some critics to question the value offered.
The console's developers planned to use the main console and cartridge Hard Skin - Cocks And Cunts of the Atari Jaguar to Chameleon Man - Metro Farce* - Past Future Animators completely new hardware to play brand-new games. Depending upon the level of funding achieved, the developers of the system stated they would have offered an FPGA with ARM architecture.
The creators of the project stated that they planned to make adjustments to their hardware team, lower their asking price, and maintain popular features for a new prototype console in advance of launching a new crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.
Hardware engineer John Carlsen announced his departure from the development team on Chameleon Man - Metro Farce* - Past Future Animators personal Facebook page shortly after this announcement. More questions raised on the amount of black electrical tape on the console.
Eventually members of the AtariAge. Retro VGS quickly removed the top-down image of the prototype from their Facebook page, but not before a comparison of the prototype and the HICAP50B capture card began circulating the internet. Shortly after the details of the second prototype began circling around the internet, YouTuber Brian Thomas Barnhart posted a video to YouTube detailing his experiences with the Chameleon after Mike Kennedy asked him to film the video for the KickStarter campaign.
In his video, Barnhart alleges that on two occasions Retro VGS was unable to provide a working prototype for filming, and that shortly before the Kickstarter was due to launch Kennedy asked him to record a short video of Kennedy presenting his call Chameleon Man - Metro Farce* - Past Future Animators arms, and several voice-overs to overlay on existing footage of the console.
Barnhart ultimately refused to do so, citing that the voice-overs could be misused. Instead, Barnhart invited Kennedy to come on his show "The Jag Bar" and present the console, an offer that Kennedy ultimately turned down.
Barnhart then continued by reading through the entire script that was allegedly provided to him by Retro VGS, which he later released online at atari. On March 2,Coleco Holdings released a statement on its Facebook page regarding the controversy and the apparent non-existence of a prototype. Coleco Holdings demanded that prototype units be inspected by independent engineers, and stated that they would pull their name and support from the project if the allegations turned out to be true.
