@ CREATICA, yep, noticed that we tend to share similar opinions - you must be very smart.
I have a strong feeling that this device will be very locked down, the developers intend to create money via selling licensed roms and other similar gaming content. It most likely will not allow you to run your own content. This combined with a much too high a price puts me off it entirely.
If you're familiar with the C64 remake, which is a waste of time and money in my opinion as it's just a PC running a buggy Linux OS... but that's another discussion... anyhow, they've done the same thing. I.e. you can emulate C64 games but you need to pay for them via an online market.
Blaze have those various SEGA consoles (with piss poor emulation) that aside from having a bunch of built in licensed games, allow you to run your own carts. This is don't mind (aside from the horribly cheap build quality and poor emulation) as I am more than happy to fork over money for a physical copy of a game.
I really don't like this new age of downloadable content (as in games you buy and must download using specific software etc and never receive a hard copy). What happens when these companies go bust? What happens if/when the server goes down, indefinitely? How do you sell your game when you're bored with it? I miss the old day of trading and buying second hand carts.
