Emulators themselves are perfectly legal though.
And yeah, those are actually good, because it's 3x resolution of the Wii, with some AA & AF. Wii was two Game Cubes stuck together...the Gamecube emulator people said it was incredibly easy to emulate the Wii. Like they didn't have to do much.

Roms are not illegal if you own the actual copy of the game.

They're only illegal if you use them to make copies to give/sell to people or modify the files so they work differently.

This thing is going to fail so hard.

A.) Everyone knows Motion Conrtols suck, and are only fun when in moderation. Otherwise, their simply a gimic. And a console that not only uses them %100 (not even the wii did that), but soes it using a cheap Kinect (hands free) nockoff - god help the chinese stupid enough to buy that.

B.) Consoles either LIVE or DIE buy their game selection. And in China where its the wild-west of piracy, no developer (or publisher) is going to want to sink any amount of cash into somthing that wouldnt sell a single copy legitimatly - they'd be completely broke after having no way to recuope their losses.

C.) No one - even the super rich - is going to pay $600 for a 'CASUAL' console. Casual gamers just don't value game consoles enough to pay that sort of money. That's why nintendo sold the Wii for $150 for the bulk of it's lifetime. And both DS and Kinect didnt even catch on til they're companies started offering them annually in holiday bundels for practically nothing.




....Bad investment Lenovo. This system is nothing more than a poormans XBOX/Wii Bastard Child - and ultimately will be just a curiosity for the mega rich.

lol at the Chinese government. They worry about population getting addicted to gaming while selling PC games at the same time.

It will be priced at 3,799 yuan ($600) per unit, and it comes with eight pre-installed games.
Last fall, it was priced at 3,000 yuan, which was then $470.

It's got quite a price tag. rolleyes.gif

ah consoles are not banned in china. honestly, where did they get that info?

i see this as part of the chinese government's attempt to fight the western cultural dominance, in this context western dominance of video games.

When I said modify them so they work differently I mean things like cracking it so you don't need to validate the games and things like that.

Not much information but it costs 600 bucks for some reason.

Hopefully it's not just a clone. At 600 dollars I can't see that. This is what is needed in the market, something to shake stuff up in within the stifling consoles.
I hope this isn't another Atari Jaguar.
