iSec game console to launch at end of 2011

Written by Nedim Hadzic

In China

Mainstream gaming consoles may be tough to find in China, but Lenovo and Beijing Eedoo Technology will set the record straight by launching their own gaming console dubbed the iSec.

iSec will embark on a trial run in December and will cost $470. Lenovo said that the full scale launch is planned for early 2012.

There’s not much technical info to go by at the moment, but it is confirmed that the console features motion sensing tech and other home entertainment options. It was confirmed that the console will be available in red, white and black.  

Eedoo CEO Jack Luo confirmed that if the unit manages to sell 1 million units, the company will release it outside China as well. However, the system is yet to gain permission from the Chinese authorities.

While we’re interested to see what’s under the hood, we can’t help but notice the terribly uninspired name. To make matters worse, the system was called eBox back in 2009, but Lenovo renamed it. While the rename isn't terribly original either, it's probably understandable as Apple copycats regularly rake in more dough than Microsoft copycats.

Consoles are getting crowded already. Each console maker will have some compelling exclusive forcing many to buy more than one console. For PC gamers, like myself, its frustrating.

Good thing for Battlefield 3.

Why consoles still exist, is beyond me. It was nice while ATARI made them 20 years ago and I had my first one, PC's weren't exactly accessible to all, but now that they are, are easily upgradable and offer better versatility, why do people keep supporting consoles? It only hurts gamers overall every 5 years or so, never-mind the quality of the games.
