The EVO 2
« on: September 05, 2011, 06:56:53 pm »


The EVO 2 seems like a very interesting new console, running on Android, and with a $130 price tag, it may just be the new thing in gaming.    Specs include:

    Samsung 1.2 GHz Processor
    NVIDIA Graphics (Unspecified card)
    512 MB DDR2 RAM
    HDMI Support
    WiFi
    Motion control coming soon
    $130 (Initially priced at $250)
    Charity, for every EVO 2 sold, 1 will be donated to poor people. 

Personally, if this lives to its name, I'm sold. Comments?

And to prove that this is a real thing(cough,TC01,cough), look at these links:

If this is real and its power can compete with PS3/Xbox 360 games (I forgot the specs of those two), it could definitively be popular eventually. If it got very popular, I wonder if this could finally make Sony and Microsoft decrease the price of their repsective consoles? The 360 was cheap for a while here, but then they re-increased the price from $199.99 to $299.99 for the one with an hard drive

Also wecome to the forums.

Looks pretty interesting. Can't wait to see how Microsoft and Sony will react.

Sounds cool, but isn't giving the basic necessities to poor people more of a priority that giving them a video game console?
