Chinese gaming enthusiasts have to wait a little longer to have their own gaming console. The much-anticipated launch of Lenovo-backed game console in China is being delayed again as the product is not yet ready to hit the market.
iSec game console developed by Eedoo Technology, works with motion sensing technology for playing games in a controller-free mode. In addition, it has many features that can be used for home entertainment like Internet surfing and playing movies and karaoke songs.
Although Lenovo itself is funding Eedoo Technology to develop the console, the company is taking a lot of time for the final release. "The product still needs work, and we want to invest more research and development in it," said Victor Wang, spokesperson, Eedoo Technology.
The console had gone through many delays in its release date. The initial plan for its release was by the end of this year. However, the time was rescheduled to early 2012. Now the launch has been further delayed in the future without any fixed date.
Such a delay is a major setback for Chinese gamers, as they do not have access to other gaming consoles. Nintendo Wii, Microsoft Xbox 360 and other game consoles are officially banned from being sold in China.
Let us hope that the company launches the console soon so that it can fill up the void of gaming consoles in the lives of millions of Chinese households.
