I was searching for "unpopular" consoles, and I found this one, the Casio Loopy. I never heard about it, so I decided to check it out.
According to Wiki, Casio Loopy was a 32-bit console released only in Japan, in October 1995. And what made it so special, you ask me? Well, it was a console targeted to female gamers. The Loopy includes a built-in thermal color printer that can be used to create stickers from game screenshots. An optional accessory, called Magical Shop, is a video capture device to obtain images from VCRs and DVD players.
Users may add text to these images and make stickers. Including Magical Shop's own built-in software, the Loopy game library contains 11 titles. The Loopy features one controller port for use with a standard game controller or with a mouse (sold separately). Developer Kenji Terada worked on Loopy Town no Oheya ga Hoshii!. Casio dropped the support of the console in 1996, only one year after its release.
Well, that doesn't look so bad. My girlfriend, if she existed, would probably like one, maybe the stickers would make it worthy. The concept of getting stickers from game screenshots looks neat, but since I'm a guy, I don't know if I would like it for myself.
The Loopy had a shot lifetime, only one year. What do you think killed it so early? Girls from VG Chartz, what do you think about this console?
