    I'm asking my Son now if he wants to split the cost...


    You already know, I am crazy, when i set my mind to it!

    :D

    (Dunno anything about it, but I know I'd want it...)

    I want one too, but can't justify the cost. I could buy 10 raspberry pi computers for that price.

    I do wonder the marketing incentive behind this for 100 games built in.

    ^ £4 apiece on ebay, shrink wrapped 'cause no one is buying them + the console if you need it: still cheaper if you consider the massive library potential of the console (PS4/Xbox One, that is).


    ^ £3.50 + a "business class" PC for less than £200. OK, OK, so you're short of 20 games. :P + a potential library of 1000s of games (OK, most are going to be crap but we are comparing to Atari 2600!)


    So I guess you're paying for wood in this new VCS... or is that just veneer too?

    Have they shown a single game you can't get cheaper and easier a million other way? Besides Antstream have they actually even shown a game at all?

    I believe the new Intellivision Amico will be far more successful. The 8 games so far look great.
