Wow! I bet Gregg would love to see that posted over at the hub... NOT!

I get more confused by the minute.

Quote:
said Patrick Roberts, President of Retro Infinity Inc. and its brand Amiga Games Inc.


^from prior press releases

Now today we have Quote:
Patrick Roberts - Advisor


Source

Are they changing titles again, like Amiga Inc. used to do?

Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems they have added Bill McEwen to the list of people involved now along with credentials (same link)

It's like musical chairs there. Whenever the music stops they just sit in a chair and look at the job title on the back.

I love this bit:

Quote:

Right now they have a record of delivering bugger all and blowing the budget.

Well, if you need a good laugh, you can also compare what "Quality Stocks" (the link above) wrote about our Bill vs what we have documented on Amigaworld from the world of reality.

I see the pumping is having an effect. It has gone up half a cent a share! It might just put of the reverse split by a couple of days.

Still no mention of any products. Surely someone could repackage Snowman Maker?

I wasn't aware that Bill McEwan claims to have invented the downloadable app store:

Quote:
Mr. McEwen also introduced first electronic store for the delivery and download of applications and services across mobile devices ten years before App Store


Are we and QS talking about the same guy?

WRIT Media Announces Schedule for NASCAR On-Car and Driver Logo Branding

For those who don't know, here's an example, albeit a car with very few stickers compared to others:



Quote:
In addition to direct car and driver logo branding, Retro Infinity will launch a social media campaign in conjunction with other promotions, which include printed materials available at the racetrack, contests, event-related NASCAR national press releases, stories, and team owner and driver interviews.


In other words, since their social media has been devoid of content, they are going to promote Nascar to fill some white space.

Anyway, if we go back to the "facts" and take their word on their plans:

Quote:
"The Retro Infinity brand will allow us to greatly expand the population of potential game licenses for our catalogue beyond the roughly 2,000 games released for the Amiga," said Eric Mitchell, Chairman of CEO of Writer?s Group Film Corp. "Retro Infinity will first target MS-DOS games, which number over 5,000 and then focus on acquiring earlier versions of present day gaming franchises."


Source

Translation: Amiga has roughly 2,000 games. But they can only refer to them as "potential" game licenses and not 2,000 games they have rights to distribute.
And they are starting with MS-DOS, so this has nothing to do with Amiga anyway.

Sorry to be so blunt, but if they meant otherwise they sure didn't make it clear. If you think my analysis of this is incorrect, feel free to disagree.

Since I see less and less connection to any Amiga product with each passing day, I'm considering closing this thread, at least in regard to my own participation.

LOL. I love the picture! That's exactly what I'm expecting to see. We've played "Where's Waldo/Wally" and now we can play "Try and spot the 1" x 1" WRIT sticker as the cars whiz around at 100mph.

I also agree with you on the software side. They keep mentioning Amiga titles, meaning games that came out for the Amiga over the years, but that doesn't give them the rights to distribute them.

It all seems to be looking like a final attempt to push the price up before it all comes tumbling down.

Where the hell did all of that crap at the top of the WRIT page on the hub come from? I suspect it is to drive the comments way down the screen so anyone who reads the hype will not find it easy to find any negative posts (especially if they're using a smart phone and have to scroll).

When is the first race? This is going to be interesting.

Ah, found it:

• NASCAR Nationwide Series Dover Race Sat Sep. 27 / 03:30 PM ET / Dover, Delaware Int’l Speedway
• Kansas Lottery 300 (Nationwide Series) Sat Oct. 04 / 03:30 PM ET / Kansas City Speedway
• NASCAR Nationwide Series Charlotte Race Friday, Oct. 10 / 07:30 PM ET / Charlotte Motor Speedway
• NASCAR Whelan Euro Series Sat Oct. 11 / Sun Oct. 12 / Le Mans France – Circuit Bugatti
• Kroger 200 (Camping Truck Series) Sat Oct 25 / 01:30 PM ET / Martinsville VA
• Goodys Headache 500 (Sprint Cup Series) Sun Oct 26 / 03:30 PM ET / Martinsville VA
• NASCAR Nationwide Series Phoenix Race Sat. Nov. 08 / 04:00 PM ET / Phoenix International Raceway
• Ford Ecoboost 300 Sat. Nov. 15 / 04:30 PM ET / Homestead-Miami Speedway

I'm guessing that the first race on Sep 27 is the one that Predictomatic referenced with his deadline and which seems to have Gregg confused. The suggestion is that if we don't see logos and news on the first race then it is all a load of rubbish.

Sorry. I could have cut and paste that, but I decided not to promote this. That's WRIT's job. Heh.

On the most recent posts you refer to:

Someone mentioned the chart and Gregg (WRIT PR) didn't understand that the poster meant the stock chart? That the stock had not risen, but fallen after the latest PR.
Then the poster mentions the date of the race and Gregg (WRIT PR) doesn't understand the date mentioned coincides WITH the race?
I almost can't blame the OPs response given the info was in the latest PR that Gregg himself posted.

Wow, looks at this post by LIKEGOLD:

http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=106537265

Is he saying that he was effectively "bought off" with some special deal in order to shut him up? I thought his tune had changed and that he used to be a lot more positive. I guess he saw through their lies when their promised certificates didn't show up.

@Darrin

If memory serves, he was an early supporter, then turned 180°.

My guess is that he is saying he was to receive shares for being a supporter.

Given that they're airing the dirty laundry in public, perhaps we'll see some confirmation of that soon.

Oh well, I see multiple deleted posts now, so I guess not.

Anyway, promises of stock...we've had that here too:

Should Amiga inc pay former employees?

One thing I learned from this is that the amount tends to change in the mind of the person offering the stock dependent on its perceived value.

I actually got my t-shirt from Garry, unlike my "coupon".

Being paid in penny stock that crashes in value and doesn't have people willing to actually buy it isn't a good idea. Being promised stock and not receiving any is even worse (although not by much in this case).

Sure, but my example would be different.

The promise is for dollars and cents but to be retrieved through sale of stock.
If the stock falls too much the guy ends up majority shareholder,so the amount of stock offered gets scaled down. Heh.

It's gotten worse.

Sage advice there, but a tad late.

How rude. No posts of "welcome" to their new board moderator, QS, the company being PAID to write erm...well you know what they wrote. (evil grin)

Hmm..we need a metaphor here. It would be like Amiga Inc. coming to Amigaworld and being crowned chief moderator with power over the entire staff and owner, whilst holding back laughter and saying "I don't see any conflict of interest in doing this". Heh.

Amazing! How did that happen? I only see one person posting his/her amazement too.

No wonder these scams happen. We have the criminals running the jailhouse.

Perhaps soon they rename and sell their own assets back to themselves as KMOS, reorganize, and rename back to WRIT.

Then they can do what Amiga Inc. did. Whenever approached about their debts or improprieties, they could just say "We aren't the same company! We aren't responsible for any of THAT!"

What you describe is only a matter of time. Unless they convince some poor sap at the racetrack to invest some serious money then they're doomed. Shuffling a couple of hundred bucks worth of shares around wont pay the bills.

This whole NASCAR thing is probably a ploy to do just that.

Reading their leadership propaganda (which is what they're probably going to be quoting to anyone they meet at the racetrack) and comparing it to the quarterly reports shows a gap in credibility as large as the Grand Canyon.
