I'm very curious regarding this console. However, nothing that they showed about it until now make me want to buy it.

People like us who play games are apparently not the target audience here. I’m pretty sure the actual target audience would much rather keep playing Toon Blast on their phones than shell out for a more dedicated device though, so I don’t see this doing very well.

Indeed, I also don't see it doing very well sales wise. But as a piece of gaming hardware it's a very interesting device.

Wii launched the pre-iPhone era. Wii games did not have mandatory exclusive games only. Wii also had a familiar chipset. That market Wii captured went to Smartphones. $200 you get your kid a 3DS or a PS4/Xbox on sale. Every advantage Wii had Amico does not. Wii was the right time and place that can't be replicated. Nintendo has even said that the market is dried up and they are not pursuing it any longer. This thing is DOA.

Now everyone has a smartphone, that's all the casual really needs. I agree , wii's biggest advantage was pre-smartphone.

The Wii is dead , why try and tap into a dead market?

Couch co-op and remakes of Intellivision classics? I'm definitely interested.

The controls make no sense in 2019. It's bold to use the old disc shaped control for movement and a screen and side buttons. It's really outdated and taking a gamble imo. It'll be interesting though to read reviews.
