    Any guesses? By the way I didn't add any pictures since I can't really think of a suitable one.

    EDIT: It's Jungle, Panasonic's new MMO platform [​IMG]

    If it was aimed towards casual gamers, it wouldn't operate on Linux.

    On-Topic: I think it looks neat. Small, but that's what makes it look cool.

    Panasonic hired Rob Dyrdek to do the jingle for their product? If you go to their product website thejungleDOTcom the youtube video starts out with the words "Welcome to the jungle". Didn't GnR already write them a perfect jingle???

    "Welcome to the jungle...we got fun and games...we got everything you want"

    IMO console has no chance.

    android is aimed at casual users, based on linux, and doing great.
    and from the looks of it it's supposed to be running games optimized for the device.

    Small, powerful machine with (presumably) good connectivity, good graphics, a gamepad and a keyboard? Yeah, I want one. I'm a sucker for micro-sub-netbook computer thingies [​IMG]

    I wonder how well it'd sell if it could play Runescape.

    that sort of kills the whole idea of the netbook in the first place; but yeah lol.

    whatever it is, if the price is reasonable it may just sell kind of well.

    kind of fugly as well ... very fugly to be exact.

    exactly! that's my point, it wont be powerfull enough to use a "decent" mmorpg, namelly any big name MMORPG nowadays.

    It might run browser stuff basically. "Here have a port of Ubuntu with firefox + flash, go play farmville, oh wait and please pay us (i'll bet no less than) 400$ and another monthly fee for the 3G".

    meeeeeeeeeh, i really like panasonic, but they tend to over price their products, i doubt this will be any different (remember the GameCube with a dvd player? yeah.... PRICEY!)
