    the only contribution the british have ever made to console gaming is the fable series. how the hell can they expect to compete with playstation, nintendo, and microsoft?

    Why would you declare it british overall, when its the idea of a single small startup?

    Sorry, we`ve been a bit busy civilising the world, starting the industrial revolution etc to have had time to improve on your toys.

    The industrial revolution began back in the 1760`s, you haven`t been working on that in a long time.

    I love how anything an English person does is suddenly labeled as THE WORK OF THE BRITISH!! 60 million of us didn`t all get together down the pub and come up with this idea.

    It just happened to be a British company.

    What a bunch of british babys. Especially arrogant comments from drawman61. You civilized the world? Ha! You trash America and it`s OK, but when someone points out how this garbage console is british made, you cry like an arrogant baby.

    bataleon27 - It is british made. That is a fact, and that is all that was said in the title. Your comment doesn`t make any sense. Are you saying that a product isn`t british made unless 60 million brits all work on it? Even if they did, I bet it would still suck.

    @robthelurker Top of my head ever heard of GTA? Could find more examples if I looked. Think it`s a bit irrelevant whether it`s British. And it`s not meant to be some next wave gen console meant to be a plug and go fun console. Enough people backed it and it`s good we could use more competition in the gaming world, everything is sameish now there is no decent innovation because the big three won`t take a risk

    You know when there`s a fat, ugly, loud chick that puts down everyone else and makes comments like "you wish you could get with this".
    That`s kinda how europeans (especially the brits) come off. The rest of the world does not envy or want to be like them, but there is no way to convince them of that.

    Backer here, so obviously take my comments with a grain of salt ;-)

    I`ve been a gamer since the Atari 2600 days and have played many genres and many platforms during the evolution. In the past, I`d always be looking for the best gfx/power in the games up until my PS3 years. When Android came out, I had a lot of fun with those games on phones and tablets despite the lower quality. Partially because of the portability, but also because some developers had to put innovation back into the games to make up for the lack of power.

    As well as this micro console (please let that term catch on), there is also the OUYA and the newly announced GamePop system. All of them have their strengths and weaknesses, but ultimately they about having fun on a budget. As well, these small systems are perfect for developers on an indie budget.

    That`s not to say that I will throw out my desktop any-time soon.

    I just welcome the variety.

    So it is okay for the British to offend every other country on things they produce but when it comes to them being the ones under fire they take it to heart and flip out about it, EVERY country gets abuse over something the make so why can`t they?

    Poor baby brits can`t take criticism. Na na, boo boo.
    By the way, if formula 1 racing was popular in the U.S. we would do that better too!

    Definitely not going to be competing for the more serious gamers, but I think it`s a good idea to have a cheaper console for those who can`t afford an xbox or playstation.

    @Turdburglar if you are trying to offend the British make sure you use wit to outsmart them. This will really piss them off. Unfortunately your comments just make you sound jealous. Every Brit will read comments such as `Na na boo boo` and instantly know you are jealous of them.

    Try insulting their prime minister, Julia Gillard. Or maybe show them how the $ is so much stronger than the €. British food, how bad is that? They don`t even have spray on cheese! Oh, and if you really REALLY want to piss the Brits off, just insult Prince Charles (the prince of whales).

    @bakcagain gta is about as british as the 1995 judge dredd movie. the only other british video game developer worth mentioning is rocksteady (batman arkham series) and batman is about as british as the character judge dredd.

    ferdyfred - better for putting horse power to pavement, which is what counts in the 1/4 mile. Also, much more durable than independent. I will admit that your tea and crumpet technology is delicious.

    jimbobsthebe - It doesn`t take that much effort, the british are an arrogant bunch. Anything short of declaring them superior in every way is enough to get their limey juices flowing.

    Being British, (and obviously superior), puts me in the position where it is not necessary explain why Brits are superior. Modesty and good upbringing prevent me from expressing my true opinion on this trivial spat with the developing nations. Being British is all about knowing one`s position in world society, so stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
    So there. Hah! now how do you feel about that then, eh? Certainly put you lot in your place, didn`t it, eh?
    etc.
    etc.
    etc.

    England Civilising the world? is that how you justify imperialism these days?
    As a "3rd worlder" im utterly disgusted.
    Genocide, followed by occupation, followed by economic and politic dependence isn`t civilising the world at all.
    you brits are just a bunch of pirates who even in this day and age occupy lands thousands of km away from your stupid isles.

    Most Brits are pretty laid back, but if you want to label them all as overly nationalistic dickheads because of a few, well, people in glass houses and all...

    As for being on topic, it looks like one of those console controllers things (from the 90`s?), that plugged into the aerial jack...it`s mad that they can fit so much into the size of a flash stick

    @robthelurker Come on because the Scottish Owners sold and became a subsidiary of Take Two it`s not British?.... We Brit`s aren`t nationalistic that`s why we let every other country buy our companies and cause us misery in their poor running.

    Side note, Pirates of Caribbean, Star War`s Harry Potter... We really don`t have a creative industry which knows how to use them fancy pant`s Apple things like they hurt my teeth when we try and munch those little mouseies at tea. And we still don`t know how you open those blasted windows to get into the spiders web that you guy`s seem to mention all the time.
