    Instead of making the tablet and housing, why not just make the housing fit a Nexus 7? Many people already own one, and anyone who does is NOT going to make this as a second purchase. I think they would sell a ton of controller housings if it were for the N7. Only advantage i see is the microsd slot Reply

    ^ what he said.

    Also, "Purpose built consoles and handhelds have been rolling out"... really? Cos I still can not buy neither a nVidia SHIELD nor a Razer Edge/Fiona anywhere...
    And where I live, not even the Archos GamePad is being sold. Not that I would pay money for it, just saying.

    I don't know why, but i see this devices as a tough sell... i agree with guy who posted before, making the housing will be a better idea Reply

    Maybe I am missing something, but where are all of these excellent games? Sure there are a few fun games on android, but most of them aren't even made for these kinds of controls. I can see NV's Shield idea of streaming games being a cool idea...but this...I don't know, maybe someone can point out some good games for me (besides emulators [which maybe that is what people will use this for?]) Reply

    Why are they calling this "Wiki" pad... Wiki already has a totally different connotation, this has got to be the worst named product outside of some of Samsung's phones.. Reply

    This is the way of the future. With the exception of *cloud computing, MMO games have latency. That latency means you need a dedicated video card and that's about to become a reality with these devices. Add in Occulus Rift VR goggles. With this technology, you'll be able to be in a doctor's office, airport, or in the backseat of a car and fully immersed within the world which you hold in your hands. THAT is a powerful statement to make. I am already signed up for testing/development coding with the test kit that comes my way in April. The commercial version is still a ways out (no commercial release date yet), but when it comes to be, gaming tablets plus VR just got real. Encourage you to go check out Occulus Rift VR goggles and the future they present dedicated gamers.

    *As mentioned in the beginning, Cloud Computing brings many people single player games and maybe even coop, but nothing player vs player or MMO that regards fast speeds from dedicated processors/video processes with dedicated video ram and slow latency.

    I agree completely Occulus Rift if it married this bad boy we would be nearer the grail -- I never wanted play games on my mums TV! Reply

    The spec war and pricing the new kid on the block wins hands down - on the wikipad website it also has HDMI out and a mike and 2 MG pixal camera as opposed to 0.3 -- umm this is a real contender -- not sure about the name but heck Google Nexus who would have thought!
    Max Payne with controller support I like that itching to play that on the go without my fingers annoying me....
