Ladies and Gentlemen i present you from South America,the new 7th generation console: Zeebo !!!
Brasilian TV Commercial Video:
Zeebo"s development started in 2008 by an Mexican company Zeebo Incorporated and finished in 2009!
It was first released in 2009 in Brasil and Tec Toy produced them and first price was R$499-(250USD),
It had already games when it was in development and production and it interested soem companies.
Those companies was ID Software,EA,Namco,Activision and many other, then invested into Zeebo while it was in development and while most of the mobile games was exchanged because controls on Z-pads...
After release and the same year when it was released the Zeebo price lowered to 399 and last time was reduced in Brasil to R$299 or 165USD.When it was launced on November in 2009 in Mexico first price was 2500 pesos or 205USD and later it was lowered to 2249 pesos or 184USD and it dint changed...
Zeebo system specifications are not high technology as other 7th generation consoles and Zeebo is weaker then Wii but it has lower price then PS2 and Wii,Zeebo was probavly first South American 7th generation console in South America,even if some or most people say that graphic are bad and that console is bad, well that is not true at all. Zeebo has decent quality and many features that arent standard for any console of 7th generation....

Download/Network - Games
Zeebo is not using DVD,CD,Floopy or even Tapes it uses 3/2.5/2G network to download games and updates for "OS" and games so there are bug fixes but also news or something.

My opinion about Zeebo:
Zeebo is a good console even it has no high tech but its betwen PS1 and PS2 also its first South American 7th generation console and Zeebo Incorporateds first console ever and it uses just mobile chips so it saves energy and other things, there are alot of things!
Interesting video that came out about a year before release of Zeebo !
Good quality,cheap,not heavy,downloading games,no piracy,adaptable to from 2G to 3G network
Mostly ports,No multiplayer,Uncompatibility with some TVs,Price in Mexico,Only Social Networks in Mexico...
NOTE: Most of people would give 1 point because they want high tech graphic -_-
Score: 8.5(Close to Legendary)
PS: Street Fighter Alpha is coming to Zeebo !!
