Is it a console, is it a PC, no it's a hybrid

New Console/pc hybrid type thingy.

Isn't this what the phantom was supposed to do, I can't see any great advantage on spending big bucks on a system where the latest games might be "a bit choppy".

No thanks.

1.2 GHz is waaaaay to slow for a machine like this...

i think it'll be a failure

I'm sure convergence is the way of the future but this particular product makes absolutley no market sense.

That console definately needs more power. Halo is already choppy with 4 players.

boooooooooo.

It's not even a good idea. GTA Vice City cost me $50 on PC when it came out, so did Vice City for PS2. So what's he talking about? Oh, right. The shitty games are cheap on release. Anything good is still going to make you pay more than twenty for it upon release.

I'll stick with my PC.. Call of Duty is 'slightly choppy' in some areas on this .. So meh It's not worth it.

pc way faster and it can either be hooked up thru the vid card or thru wireless hub to a tv...WAY better than any of that shit IMO (at least untill they start making bigger BETTER products).
