Some more facts for y'all to know:

This thing comes with the tools to create your own game; indies rejoice.
There is also a black version, with a black controller.
There doesn't seem to be any preventive measures to keep you from unscrewing it and opening it; modders rejoice.

For $99.99 it'd be at least worth a try. I'm hoping it lets you put non-market apps/games on it because then I'd just port some I got on my phone over to it

Does anyone know if Doom has been ported to Android devices?
DOOM's been ported to pretty much everything, and if there doesn't happen to be an android version yet, there will be one probably shortly after this is released.
Awesome. I sorta kinda wasn't born early enough to be in the DOSbox age, but the N64 port was pretty sweet.

It'd be nice had my father not sold my N64...

I kinda like this. Slash already pointed out putting emulators on here, and considering the fact that I don't have a smartphone, there may be a whole slew of games I've never seen.

Looks sexy. If it has some decent rpg/rts exclusives i might pick it up. 99$ aint nothing to me lol.
That's where they won. I don't know their profit margin on hardware, but by keeping it so cheap they're encouraging consumers (and especially parents) to take a shot with one.

Yup even I can't deny how great the console looks.
Well you can always buy those emulators on the Android market SNES,N64,GBA,Genesis, PSX,etc.
Instead of buying that crappy shovelware.

I actually think this looks pretty cool. Well, I mean the system itself looks reallllly sexy. I'd imagine the games will be shit to be honest. xD Android isn't really a "gaming" company. I think it should just stick to its mobile devices/tablets.

Unless, that is, they're planing on having some of the popular modern games that are on PS3/Xbox360, then maybe it'll have some more success.

Looks awesome, I'll have to read more about it. Not far from the release date either, should be interesting. Looks exactly like an Xbox controller, shape and button configuration.

Oh! They've now added a touchpad to their XBOX controller? So basically done what Sony's planned on their PS4 pad.

I've not even heard it touted around much either. Have no review websites like Neoseeker, IGN, etc been given a go? And with E3 2013 pretty much the week after, I imagine most gamers would hold off to see what Sony and Microsoft are offering for their next consoles.
You do realize since its coming out prior to the PS4, ie right now, its highly unlikely they saw Sony's reveal and decided to tack on a touchscreen. & as far as the Xbox controller argument, if it ain't broke why fix it?

This console isn't direct competition for the big three. Its not meant to be. Its a console that was developed over a few million dollars to bring something new to the industry. Android games are a bigger market than you think. Developers love the free-to-play model because its low cost & low risk usually resulting in pretty good profit.

I'm not saying its going to pull a Wii, but don't sleep on it. I think it'll be pretty successful all things considered.
