I should be angry that the market for homebrew game consoles is getting so crowded, but instead I can't help squeeing seeing this beautiful design.

I also love how they contracted actual game developers to make actual games, instead of counting on the community to make them for free, or including an emulator like most others.

The 400x240 reflective screen looks beautiful, and the whole thing is really well designed. I hope it will be an open platform.

@deshipu They've said on their twitter that the SDK will be available to everyone

@deshipu (dunno if that's gonna be the same as open, but there's that at least)

@dzuk Yeah, might be "you can write your own code, but you can't put it in our app store" model. Which is still not that bad, as it allows for a homebrew community.
