    If Shenzen wouldn't exist I would give this thing a chance. As things are, I'm sure that someone in China is already working on a version of these controls for existing tablets. A Nexus or Kindle Fire HD plus separate third party controls should be possible for a lot less than 500 bucks.

    Not sure how much that translates into in GBP, but it sounds like it'd cost just as much for people to go out and buy a PS Vita for their gaming, and then a top-of-the-range smartphone or base-model Tablet for Tablet-ing.

    Good God, $499????? That's just excessive. I don't see people buying this for any price, let alone $499, with the Wii U coming out.

    Additionally, what are the games they plan to integrate with these controls? Do they expect people to pay $499 so they can play those horrible App Store games? This thing has ZERO appeal, especially when you can buy a console or decent PC for the same or less price to get access to actually decent games. $499... Absolutely repulsive.

    It looks alot like the Wii U

    It's huge! If I want those controls on the go that's what the vita or 3DS is for. If I wanna play at home that's what my TV is for. If I were to get a tablet, it would not be for hardcore games requiring a controller. It just isn't for me at all.

    F-F-F-F-F-F-Flop the base... It doesn't seem like it would sell well in a world where if you wanted the features it could bring, that you wouldn't already have one.

    So, it's basically an android version of that product Razer dropped? I think the solution to this problem is a portable controller of a high build quality for people to use with their expensive phones and tablets. I've seen a few around, but they've never been more than a desperate money grab. I already have a nice tablet, and a nice phone, why would I want another nice tablet just for the proprietary controller peripheral?

    i just want the damn controller, already have a Transformer Prime. the thing looks awkward sure but better then the other options.
  • laurenhiya21 - September 30, 2012 3:58 p.m.

    I know I'm kind of repeating what everyone else is saying but seriously, at $500, this thing is really going to flop ._. I mean for games that looks like it would be super awkward to hold, and for tablet purposes, you could easily get a perfectly fine tablet for way less than that .__.

    problem is games for it I know theres a for decent ones out now but the majority are still angry birds type of games that doesnt warrant a 500 dollar tablet but 500 isnt all that expensive for a tablet of its specs
  • Net_Bastard - September 30, 2012 2:59 p.m.

    This thing is going to flop. Why wouldn't people who would use it for gaming just get a handheld gaming system, and why wouldn't people who would use this as a normal tablet just get a regular tablet? Also, it looks bulky as fuck.

    This is a pretty keen idea. That said, I still expect it to flop.
  • SouthTippBass - September 30, 2012 2:16 p.m.

    Flop hard.
  • dangomushi - September 30, 2012 8:25 p.m.

    For the sake of another new tech company, I hope they don't release it. If 5 people buy one I will be surprised. I totally believe it's a pretty cool machine, but there's too much competition and unnecessity. In 5 years we're all gonna have shit like this, though.
