Am really happy that this project met with such tremendous support.

its intended to be indie devs heaven, where you can get a lot of great indie titles for cheap or even free with ad support.

Based on how much money they're bringing in, they'll be at over $2M before midnight PST. Crazy.

We have (a large portion of) the industry eager to see any details about new hardware.... and you guys are surprised?!!!

(btw, I know this isn't comparable to the 720/PS4, but heck I'll take anything new right now! I'll even go as far to say I'll get a Wii U!)
