External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Vaporware. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Fez[edit]

Fez also suffered a protracted and delayed development cycle, missing several release dates and spanning over a length of four years. Several artists and programmers were also extremely briefly involved in the project, before the line-up of people contributing to the project switched again. Would anyone else be for adding this to the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thdegy (talkcontribs) 20:50, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

No. Its available on steam for 9.99 and doesn't really highlight any of tangential aspects of vaporware such as antitrust.

Ovations office[edit]

"Vaporware first implied intentional fraud when it was applied to the Ovation office suite in 1983; the suite's demonstration was well received by the press, but the product was later revealed to have never existed."

I read the article on ovation and it doesn't suggest the product "never existed", it was just never released.
