I discovered one interesting console, its Zeebo and its first console of Zeebo incorporated...
The creation of this console was for about one or two years after final version and many companies like ID software,Namco,EA and many other companies wanted to publish games so Zeebo will have many games in next years if the interest comes and if there will be a world wide console!
Zeebo is an special console, it uses BREW for the "OS" and it plays only JAVA games...
It dosent use catriges or discs, it uses 3G,2.5G and 2G network if needed to download some java games.
Zeebo has about 30 to 50 games and its currently in Brasil and Mexico but in future it will be in India and Russia also by 2011 it will be in China but there is posibility if AT&T makes contract with ZeeboINC and maybe it will come in North America,Australia,Europe and Asia in the way that it will be probavly avalible in most countries of the world!
If Zeebo makes a contract with AT&T then if you got a Zeebo and you are using 3,2.5 and 2G network you will not have costs of downloading contest but you will still pay some games and the list of new games to buy and download will be bigger...
The console costed about 250$ at beggining becuase it was new and they dint know who will buy this console but after some time the price has gone been lower and its now 100-150$ and PS2 was more expensive then Zeebo at beggining and it was the same price as Wii at that time...
Due tehnical limitations there arent much new games,mostly ports and versions for this console but there are some good old clasics and some cool games!
MUST PLAY: Quake 1,Quake 2,RE4,FIFA 09Tekken 2 and Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D
MUST BUY : Rally Master Pro,Galaxy On Fire and Crash and NFS:Own The City(AKA Carbon)
Watch this video:
Even its the first Zeebo Incorporated console and lacks of some features and other things but its they first console and atleast they dint make most of mistakes that has made by SEGA !
But even if it got some great games there are some bad games but due limitations and most of people do not know whats Zeebo and due slow expanding to other countries it may fail and by stronger consoles it will slowly die or in Asia it will be crushed by bad copies of Zeebo that will suck and chinese stuff will rule the world and one super low quality nuke will explode because some dude touched the top of the head and huge big Kaabbooooooommmmmmm...
Well i hope that they will make a stronger version and that upgrades will be minor and that we will pay small price for upgrading the console :D

I hope that there will be many ports of old games from PC and maybe Half Life 1, its actualy posible because an very old game and with javas posibilities without losing much quality and good file size compression it will rock in one way. Hitman Codename 47 is posible if they remove ragdoll if that reduces performance :D
