On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your pain?

I'm actually somewhat interested. Most of the people involved with the production have quite a pedigree. Yes I know it's probably going to do shit and I have plenty of my own doubts. My wishlist for this thing is that it's open so I can put my own emulators and such on it if I so desire (seems like it will), have at least some level of internet connectivity (mainly for software purposes- shitty android devs, for example, are more likely to flock to it if it's got some sort of Android compatibility or a way to download games off the web? I don't know man. Just having android-type games run easy on this thing would be gr8), run decently and be easy to record. Shit, the price is even acceptable.

I really would LOVE for it to succeed. I like the idea of having an FPGA inside a console, and not just for hardware emulation purposes (Would that properly be called "emulation"?). Plus, the idea of some devs releasing games with the same quality standards as older systems would be great (game would have to be bug-free on launch, etc.).

But, there's no way the FPGA inside of it can be high-end enough to really show its benefits compared to standard CPU's/GPU's, that would just be too expensive. So it would be relegated to doing the console-core thing, and be something for dev's to play with (but that won't really affect users too much). Most developers, particularly indies, are also very reliant on internet updates now, so they would probably avoid developing for it immediately.

Might be a good Retron-3 replacement, though.

It's a scam

No it's not. I even know what you're talking about and both of those claims are bullshit.

>>4488

Yeah, I'm mostly intending to use it as a better Retron 5. For $150 they could easily make some sort of much more powerful Android dealy so the hardware is going to be less efficient than it could be but that's fine, it doesn't need to be high end. I think it has some sort of ARM chip on it. And maybe it'll have internet connectivity.

Wasn't it busted and outed as a scam already?
