    Using the crank to control time in that game is pretty cool actually, though I imagine it being tiring after a while. Wouldn't get it though, and I'm going to guess that those free 20 games are mostly going to be mini games.

    So now we know why the Goose game has been delayed... And doesn't have a title yet. Because of this stupid trash distraction. GET BACK TO THE GAME!!! >_>

    I'd like to test it! I love the fact you can (or have to) play it in direct sunlight is a definite plus :)
    But $150... You can buy a nice vita (or 3ds), they've got loads of games (more then 12!) and even have colour!
    Hmm, I allready have a perfect console with no backlight and lots of games (and you can pick one up for $20 !). Ok, it hasn't got nice aluminium and no crank but you can get one in yellow...

    I was completely on-board until I read the price. Yeah, they can keep their system.

    Hold power button and turn crank three and a half times to enter RCM.

    that resolution is worse than psp. The 2D games could probably look great.

    The black and white aspect is what kills it for me. No prospects of homebrew.

    Probably couldn't get a musical box in there to play pop goes the weasel while it does it



    No need to get all old man cranky because the kids of today have no clue of the world of yore.

    Just googled "hand crank video game" and clicked videos - first result :P

    I'm so disappointed that the crank doesn't charge the device. That would make it worth 80-100ish imo (to me at least)

    Still a neat mechanic but with a black and white screen I imagine it would take less power (making it seem even more like the crank should charge it)...I wonder if it's backlit....

    Im weirdly on board for this... Mainly because this is this kind of thing that nobody would buy based on hardware and cost... So that leaves games. I do want to see if the games are good and if they are Ill be picking one up.

    I would start considering it for $5-20. For $150 it's a joke. A bad joke.
    Also, crank gameplay sounds really, really stupid, since it can only rotate.
    It's pretty much a one-dimension controller, can't compare to the 32+ of an actual analog stick, or even the 2 from a D-pad.
    The sole advantage is fine-tuning the movement, which could be done with a single modifier button on an usual d-pad.
    It will also get tiresome after a while.

    Overall, terrible idea.
