Free Amiiqo, Price Drops and USB Support
The developers of the Amiiqo (an Amiibo backup/emulator device) have announced in an email that they’re dropping the price to $49.95, and they’re releasing a USB reader/writer for the Amiiqo. Additionally, early adopters will be able to receive either an additional Ammiqo or the newly announced USB reader/writer for free.
Here’s the original email:
We have great news for all Amiiqo fans and users today. Past, present and future
First, a warm thanks to all for your support, Amiiqo launch has been a
tremendous success and it means that our second much larger production batch is
on its way. But more importantly this means we are able to drop the Amiiqo
suggested retail price to $49.95, our originally intended pricing, once the
initial startup/tooling costs could be guaranteed. Thanks to you guys, it was
reached much faster than expected.
To thank all of you who made this kick-starter possible, we are thrilled to
announce the choice of either a free Amiiqo unit (shipped within 2 weeks) or our
upcoming USB reader / writer (estimated start of shipping end of September) to
all our loyal early adopters who purchased a unit before August 18th . In the
coming days we will release an update to our android app that will reveal a
unique serial number for your amiiqo, all you need to do is send an email to
[email protected] with your serial number and choice of reader or amiiqo in the
subject line and your full mailing address in the email body.
Rest assured there is more exciting news coming ! ( hint, did you know your
amiiqo firmware is fully updatable ? )
