    I know! It's a bit on the expensive side though. It actually costs more than a Wii, even in HK! There's someone selling them on another collectors forum I use. At cost price with delivery they work out to about 160 quid! It's also got 32-bit architecture if I remember right!

    Those DS quality like game images, look way to good for a clone console

    This is the first time I've seen "screen shots" of the console's games, I just figured it was an 8-bit NES clone with 100,000in1 games

    The games in the vid look ok but nothing spectacular. Kind of like an N64 or PSX or something. I'd shell out 50 notes for it. Definitely makes a change for an original console to come out Mainland China rather than some kind of fami-clone.

    Yeah that's what I thought originally, then I thought maybe 50 quid because of the whole Vii-mote thing. Then on the other forum I was talking about a guy mentioned he'd been in touch with the company and enquired about importing them and got told that price. That's for buying 10, obviously it'd be cheaper if you bought more but I don't think you'd ever get it dwn to a reasonable price.

    wow@ these chinese cloner ppls. They've cloned pretty much everything popular, including the iPhone. Now here's the Vii! [​IMG]

    Will this thing be any good though? Don't think those game developers want to make games for a wii knockoff...

    Wow lol the videos look reasonable.
    I think that it may be ok. Not worth £160 but maybe £30-£70 max.
    May be amusing for quite a while.

    But it won't take off. Not anywhere other than maybe in China
