Thanks, will check that later.
But yes, to all that said I was wrong : I understand now. I jumped the gun, not because I don't understand games consoles though. I've had a Master
System, Super Nes, N64, Dreamcast, Playstation, and currently have a PS2 and PS3. The problem was that I didn't understand Android and the Tegra 3
technology they're using in this, because I've loathed mobile phones for a decade so had no idea of the technology.
So now I can see what you mean. But what I think what will happen is that this is going to open the door to their eventual demise. It's a first small
step into the future, one where consoles like this are truly open for us to do what we want, and I think the key thing is that when the technology
progresses several stages past Tegra 3 and consoles like OUYA are able to use that tech properly with all the developers they have.....I think that's
when we'll finally see things change in a big way.
So I think someone here said maybe several years into the future, I agree with that now. But there's still the chance this will make a huge impact and
hit them a lot earlier. It's clear that people don't just go for the best graphics and the best tech, because if they did, consoles would never have
taken off and people would've just played PC games from the start. So there's still a chance that given the right developers making the right games
this is going to come out of the blocks really fast and hit Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft a lot sooner.
(they just passed $4million too, and with 27 days to go, so they're not going to be short of the funds to make a good start.)
