New Console Entering Marketplace

Huawei has made its presence felt in the tech industry with its wide range of Android smartphones and now the company is extending its reach to the always in-demand gaming bandwagon. The China-based tech company unveiled its Android-based cross-platform gaming console called "Tron" at the start of this year's most anticipated electronics event, the CES 2014. (Android, Casual games, CES 2014, Dev, Industry, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3)

This is great Android console have been doing soooo well *Read with sarcasm*

So far Android console have been over priced and have under performed. Maybe these guys can do a better job, but I doubt it.

"The Tron mini-gaming console sports a Tegra 4 processor from Nvidia and 2GB RAM with optional 16GB or 32GB internal storage."

Nah, this thing isn't nearly powerful enough to compete with next gen. I expect it to go the way of the GameStick and the Ouya.

Unless China loves it, but they're primarily PC gamers.

@ TomShoe

This thing won't be able to compete with the PS3 and Xbox 360 on a performance basis. While mobile GPUs are catching up in raw performance, they're still crippled by mobile memory interfaces.

Huawei makes trash phones so i am sure they will live up to their name and make a trash console.

"The china-based tech company unveiled its amdroid-based blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah."

Android based means nobody cares.

Well it could mean something, but they never give anything on Andriod OS any CPUs with real power. As 100% of ARM CPUs are low power model at the moment with less than 10W. A lightbulb in your house has more power.

Games on this device would never match up to current gen games even. Its basically a Cell phone games at home kinda box. Nothing more.

Soon to join phantom, ouya, and other wannabe consoles of the past.

No thanks. I'll stick to ps4.

Don't forget the Panasonic Jungle that was supposed to come out last year but I never heard any more about
Chrono  +   760d ago
What did they mean by cross-platform, and how is it going to run PC, PS3? I know there are DS emulators for Android, and PC is probably using the cloud, but how are they going to run PS3 games on that thing? Maybe PS1 or PSP.

I think Sony would have something to say about running PS3 games, and nintendo should about DS. Sounds like infringement to me unless a side deal has been made.

You're talking about a country where they have whole city blocks of knock offs and rip off shops.

It's really aimed at the newly opened and starved Chinese market.

Supplying to a blank canvas market is much easier than a heavily saturated one.

Mobile tech android console running Ps3 games?
It is a bit early for aprils fools.

I wouldn't believe you could successfully run a game like say Ratchet and Clank: TOD on even the most badass gaming Rig out there even if there even existed a ps3 software emulation program.
Just no way it can run on some puny tegra chip...

Prolly just careful wording to create hype for their 150$ console that happens to be compatible with android games, some of which are multiplatform games that are also on Ps3... Like ANGRY BIRDS.

seems like Ouya will have an competitor now
not that this'd survive 'cuz Ouya is selling really well

Goodluck emulating the PS3 on the "android based console". I have not yet to found a PS3 emulator that works flawlessly on PC's. I don't think there's even one out there on the web.

will still sell better than the vita

Won't play better though :-p

These are all of the Android-based consoles that have been released/announced since the end of 2012. That's eleven consoles. Eleven. ELEVEN. And how many of these have actually succeeded?

Goodnight, sweet prince.

China have the biggest demographics of pirates. What make them think that they will buy any games for android? The Ouya also suffers from this because nobody legitimately buy games on it. All I can see is failure with this. . .
RTetro  +   759d ago
Gah! I can't afford another console!!
Unztayble  +   759d ago
sooo.. how they gonna get PS3 games on this thing? Streaming?
ninjahunter  +   759d ago
Im assuming they mean ports :/
Like "it can play this game thats also on PS3, or this game that's also on PC" Which Could be a selling point I guess, considering how very few android based games there are that anyone would actually want to sit down at a TV to play.

It runs PS3 games? Wtf?
