Question:- Obviously tempered by whatever it's internal specs are, the people buying into this concept are going to be a bit more tech savvy than the average joe - theoretically the community going to be attached to this could port / emulate / getting running in some form ALL of the above titles since the whole raison d'etre and point of the console is for it to be hackable, yes?

I'm more tech savvy than the average Joe (not by a wide stretch granted) but from what I've read I still don't understand the hype regarding what the end product will be. I am impressed by the enthusiasm and entrepreneurial foundation though.

Even suggesting Skyrim for this console is frankly ludicrous, but I honestly fail to see why the likes of Minecraft wouldn't work.

It's the controls also I see an issue with.

Apart from the likes of angry birds, touch screen controls are generally poor IMO.

lol do the users even realise that the tegra 3 processor is less powerful than the one in the galaxy s 3 "phone"?

Yes in terms of processing it may be knocking on ps3/360 door but the fact is you need dedicated graphics to run these games.

Besides wasn't this meant to be all free 2 play games?

Just pledged $99 to the cause :mrgreen:

The games above I'm not really that bothered about playing- I'm looking forward to seeing some original stuff. Mix that with some classic game emulation and give me the chance to have a crack at making my own game (I can use my own artwork for it :D ) and I'll be as happy as a very happy man called Larry.

I'm surprised there's been no mention of past attempts at open-source gaming devices, such as the various GamePark devices. They have pretty much universally been failures; while most people who bought them, loved them, not enough people actually bought them.

Ummm maybe games I've never played before? So is this thing just designed to play ports and OLD ports no less?
