In a surprise story today, an $100 Android gaming system created by Yves Behar was announced today, and has spread like wildfire around the web from The Verge. This gaming system will be connected to the TV, has is described as a high-concept developer ecosystem that’s as free as can be.
“Any developer will be able to publish games, claims the listing, and all games will be free to play. Even the underlying hardware is “built to be hacked” — every customer who buys a retail box will get a dev kit in the bargain.”
This gaming system will be interesting to see how it will fare in the gaming market. I’m very interested to see how it will compete against major gaming consoles such as the XBOX 360, Playstation 3, and the Wii (U). Although I can see a market for this console, I predict it will not be able to sell as much as the XBOX or Playstation, even at it’s low price. It seems like this product is geared towards more of a specific target market of a developer or hacker, rather than the everyday consumer. But what are your thoughts about this?
