GameGadget, a system that wants to be "the iPod of Gaming"
UK-based company GameGadget has unveiled a new, open-source game system today, simply titled the "GameGadget 1.0".
The press release is vague, but shows the high ambitions the company has for the system, boasting the tagline "a revolutionary Open Source handheld gaming device that will change the way that games are played, developed and sold."
Here's what Jason Cooper, creator of the GameGadget, had to say:
The system will be released in January 2012, has a price tag of £99.99 (about $135), and runs a version of Linux. Other than that, not much else is known about the system other than a few screenshots.
If anything, this isn't entirely new. Companies like GamePark Holdings, OpenPandora, and Dingoo Digital have made open source, handheld systems before, but with little success. However, this new system might just have a chance.
