Well waddayaknow, someone managed to make something interesting with Android. A sub $100 open platform console to hook up to your hdtv that includes a yummy controller.
I loves me my iPad, but I’ve never gotten the hang of racers and first person shooters by waving the screen about or tapping frantically all over the iPad. Maybe it’s the old age, but I prefer a real controller for those kinds of games.
And by the looks of how their Kickstarter project is going it seems we will soon be able to get one of these.
Also if it’s really open it’ll be nice to see emulators coming to this. Mmmm, big screen SNES & TG-16.
After Nintendo recently announced they’re now embracing DLC (downloadable content) maybe this is what the market needs for a good wake up call. Either that or it’s the final nail in the coffin of old school high quality games and EA shall rule us all.
Let’s wait and see.
