    If their product is quite literally "ARM powered device that slides vertically into a dock with detachable controllers on either side that slide on and off" then they're going to get sued to hell and back by Nintendo. And it'd be totally justified, because they have the parents to back them up this time around

    Mobile gaming is trash no matter what you make. Literally all just oversaturated gacha games or townbuilders. The last mobile game I even played was dragon quest iv port and the only reason was for the party chat otherwise would have just played on ds

    Maybe.. Could also be misinterpreting it? I'm reading it as a miracast kind of deal where it wirelessly streams to a compatible TV or adapter. Which to me is just... Dumb...

    Pfft do they really think they can challenge the astounding success that was the OUYA? I think not.

    I just want the games on the system to have controller support. Not feel like I'm still playing a touch screen game. Fortunately I use shield tv now which is far better than ouya and has actual console game ports even if some are rather old, still even with nvidia game stream or the cloud gaming service helps boost the range of content. I felt ouya may have tried to open the box for developers to create original content but didn't really try to commit them to make games designed for a home console setting, most of how early sega genesis games was arcade ports and games still play like if it was just a arcade with focus on high scores, no saves, limited lives and continues and games that didn't last too long until they started doing that later in the console life. :unsure:

    Seriously! ENOUGH with these so called Android gaming phones. Now if we had a Windows tablwt with a dock, that would be world shaking.

    Looks much better than the joycons, and those were designed by industry veterans.

    Funny, that's precisely the story of the Sega Saturn. It's also the reason the Saturn has one of the best collections of shoot'em ups of any console. :)

    If they want this to take off they should make a dedicated gaming device first with smartphone abilities second and get developers on board for the dedicated device. Not a custom Android firmware and a dock for overclocking games designed for non gaming hardware that noone wants to play in their living room.

    The Nokia N-Gauge flopped in part due to it's design being based too much on the phone aspect.

    I though the turbo graphic 16 was known for the shooter dominating their console. :ninja:

    Here's to this failing worse than the Ouya. I'd rather just use a Android Emulator on my PC..

    Lol, that is hilarious. :rofl2:

    You know the true reason behind Switch success wasn't it design, right? From the start Switch is just normal tablet with ability to stream on tv, even joy-con are just "very creative bluetooth controller" so there is nothing special about Switch design.

    The true reason for it success is Nintendo™ games. That is the sole reason people want it, for thing like BotW, Bayonetta, Splatoon, Kirby, Mario, Pokemon... not for a glorify tablet that can stream on tv. I would love to see who would want to buy a basically an OUYA with worst game library on the market.

    To be honest, the idea is pretty cool, but I doubt that this thing will be successful.
