No 3D Accelerator. I have a hard time thinking there is a future for this when it doesn't have a well known 3d accelerator. I dont even know if it has one at all. OUYA has a better long term goal and I have more desire for it. Maybe because it was first to the table or maybe because it has/had such a large number of kickstarters, making me think my chances of throwing away an investement are smaller. Either way more power to these creators but I dont see this being other than android ports of 2d games. Best of luck to them and fellow kick starters

[citation][nom]mouse24[/nom]The real question is, who in the world would buy this instead of say a used handheld with loads more functionality and practicality?[/citation]
Because this can be put on a 60 inch screen for one... its even more portable and can be used in multiplayer games easier than Ouya.

Splendid


I doubt this has the horsepower for any decent resolutions, or graphics for that matter. I'll give you portability but I just see myself using a handheld more than going over to a friends house and hooking this up. Atleast one I will play on the go and have the ability to play anywhere, anytime. The other... requires a TV... and has rather bad games comparatively.

I just don't see anyone buying these. Maybe if they were around 20/30 bucks.

Where was the innovation when they came up with this dongle hdmi adroid sticks have been around for awhile now sheesh. All they did was make a custom controller with bluetooth make it so you could snap dongle to controller. These guys did nothing new and with no 3D I don't see it sticking around for very long.

Now if you want to see something kewl you should check out a true portable console that can be used as a hom console here http://www-gcw-zero dot com
