I'd be excited if it wasn't just an Android device like the one I already have. I'm sure it will kick ass, but even with a controller none of my Android games can compare to my 3DS games.

The problem will all the new Android gaming consoles/handhelds is that they are limited by the lowest common denominator. Mobile gaming developers have to make their games work on a Galaxy S, Galaxy SIII, and everything in-between.

That's why Android and iOS games will never be able to compete with closed single run dedicated consoles.

I'll play Angry Birds on the go when I don't want to hall around more than one device and I'll enjoy Zelda OoT 3D when I want a real game.

This reminds me, and this is an important thing to have for handheld games, can you put it into sleep mode easily?   Can you simply lower the screen and clamp it down to put it into sleep mode?  If not, that would be a terrible oversight.



I think it looks good. Wanna know the cost though...

SPOILER ALERT!!! It will bomb. (atleast if you compare it to 3DS and even Vita)


Of course it will bomb.

If it were relevant, it wouldn't be announced at CES.

Isn't most of the stuff announced at CES just vaporware?

Why, pray tell, would I EVER want to stream my PC games, that usualy work better with a mouse and keyboard, onto a tiny screen with a lower resolution than my 24 inch full HD monitor? Why oh why would I care about playing a PC game on a handheld that loses that ability if I walk 100 feet away from my wireless router? Why would ANYONE buy this thing for streaming PC games?

If I want to play a PC game I'm going to do it with my kick ass gaming PC.

The same reason why people brag about playing Wii-U games on the tablet rather than on the TV! Toilet Friendly!

The Wii-U pad doesn't even make it to my toilet. It's useful when the tv is in use, never have that problem with my pc monitor though.
Streaming 720p will probably limit the range even further.
