BNR: I’m somewhat surprised by this new development- a new console known simply as the OTON X, from EnGeniux is looking to shake up the world of gaming by automatically creating games without the need for human input.
Skynet is right. I bet it'll start with simple variations of pong while secretly tapping into every powerful nations defense systems. All under the guise of a game console...
Doesn't even make sense. Also, too many futuristic Xs in the name.. Oton x by engeniux? Writing everything with X is so 2000
Never doubt the X! It often marks the spot of a treasure!
Pfft...not impressed ; call me when it plays the games for me too, can make me a sammich, and wipe my azz.
Cool idea but will it actually make good games though? Also, how will this even work?
Im sure it will spit out something like GTA6, in no time.
Why would I want to buy a console so that I can play Linux and Android games when I already have Linux and Android?
Could be true. Reminds me of the stuff in the leaked xbox 720p document. Could be the same tech.
The "official site" is down. So much for a source check.
Also, horseshit. Where are the proper nextgen consoles MS/Sony? Those are the only ones that matter.. I HOPE.
This sounds exactly like Onya!! They have competition already in the low-budget $99 dollar market.
I'm not getting excited by anything like this unless they show some gameplay that was artificially created..
Says it can create environments to your liking. I have a feeling it's just going to be interactive tours more than actual games. It's saying "games" like the system will replace existing games and we'll never need to buy another game again.
What would be amazing though is if the whole console was basically a casualized game engine. With preset templates in a variety of genres, that you can edit however you want. Like littlebigplanet on steroids, that i would pay for!
Come to think of it, this idea might make sense. If people can create set-pieces and mini campaigns, and upload them for the world to play, would be awesomee.
I like the way you think.
Yeah right; define games.
At least they got the controller layout right like the Xbox 360 controller.
This console generate random Call of duty game every month.
This seems... Way too ambitious to become anything of real potential. It might be a good stepping stone for something later on down the road, but as of now... I don't see this going anywhere or doing anything really special.
If you watch the video closely. It clearly means that it will give the users tools to automatically create games in less than a month.
