Blur’s lead designer suggests that Zeebo – a brand new games console targeted at the developing world – will be a great platform on which to launch new IP.
Never heard of it. Specs? The controller looks rank!

If I am not mistaken they already called it quits in Brasil! The console is a joke if you already own a X360, PS3 and/or Wii, it's targeted to countries where the other consoles are too expensive! In Brasil an xbox360 4g slim with kniect and Alan Wake and Forza 4 goes for OVER U$ 1200!!! PS3 160GB + Bundle Play Station 3 Move goes for also for a little over U$ 1200 Wii Motion Plus + 2 Games Wii + Remote Controller for U$ 600 And the Zeebo is under U$ 200. The different is HUGE, I grew up in Brasil, lived there until the age of 21 (I'm 32 now), it's so hard to keep up with game consoles etc, when people complain about prices here in the USA, I'm like you have no idea how good you have it here!
Why dont they just buy a PS2 or gamecube or something ? Any last gen console looks better than one of these things.
@Nicaragua: They do buy PS2 and last gen consoles over Zeebo, PS2 is the king cause they can get pirated games very easily! That's why PS2 is still kicking butt, mainly because now its fairly affordable to the poorer population! My whole family is in Brasil, and I got tons of friends over there, and I do not know anyone that has that POS!
LOL I heard her say "Quake 1, Quake 2" in there. Why wouldnt these people just by a old computer for cheaper and play better games. You could buy a 10 year old computer for cheap as dirt and play better games than this.
@Solidus187-SCMilk unfortunately even computer in those countries are expensive, and tons of people still don't have it. My parents don't own one and they have no clue how use one, I tried to convince them to give it a shot, cause I would be able to video chat with them for free instead of paying tons of money in international tel calls. in Brasil the lowest priced computer I found costs almost U$900 (Desktop All In One Compaq HP CQ1-1220br c/ Intel® Atom D510 2GB 320GB DVD-RW Webcam LCD 18,5'' Windows 7 Starter - HP)
Its a good idea for people who can't afford consoles. There are a lot of poor people that should play games and this will allow them to
agreed. Here it is, the poor man's Resident Evil 4, with PS1 sounds! :) http://www.youtube.com/watc...
That is the funniest thing i have ever seen, The lag on the shooting looks fantastic.
