I wonder if the world needs another game console at this time. This one has some distinguishing characteristics though. First, it is actually pretty good looking.

And nice specs...

  • NVIDIA nForce™2 Ultra 400 platform processor
  • 256 MB RAM
  • 40 GB local content cache
  • Microsoft Windows XP® Embedded Operating System

  • technical expertise
  • Lapboard, mouse and game pad included
  • HDTV and Dolby® Digital 5.1 compatible
  • Works with any consumer-standard broadband Internet Service Provider (ISP): DSL or faster

Plus, you simply buy, rent or demo games over a broadband connection. IIRC, the CEO was the project leader on the XBox. So what do you guys think?


Its not a bad game in theory. It just has to stay competitive and have a large library of games in the works...

All game consoles are computers. It doesn't matter what kinds of parts they use.
