iPhone gaming is big competition right now.
And with the PS VITA only months away from release, I doubt that this will have a chance in the real world.

@farhad2k8: See, something like this isn't exactly going after the same demographic that the Vita is catering to. People who are interested in this aren't necessarily looking for a new experience; just a super-easy way to relive older games.

Someone who wants to play portable retro games, but doesn't want to buy an expensive piece of tech like the Vita (not to mention the headache that is installing CFW to run emulators) would jump on something like this in a heartbeat.

Do I think it'll sell? Probably not. Still interesting that someone's attempting, though.

I have the same view as you to be honest, but all I'm saying is that this would have actually had a chance if there was no iPhone gaming and no PS VITA.

But let's see what happens, I don't know the future. :')
