I honestly don't think it will succeed - the ship price is too high, the
software library is too small, and it looks like they're using stock
hardware (less profit margins). You can pick up a PS2 new for $120 and
have access to 500+ games (a fair number of which are playable and decent).
Unless they have an exclusive killer app, this will probably never be
accepted beyond a few hobbyists.
Sorry if that sounds too negative :-P
