Almost everyone who visits DCEmu does because of either Homebrew or Gaming or maybe the free porn jk and in a weeks time the very ambitious Pandora Console goes into Preorder status. The first lucky 3000 will have a console as powerful as the Nintendo Wii, with a DS Clamshell type case, a console that we already know has full speed Amiga, Snes, Megadrive and Final Burn Emulators and most likely many many more that have not been unveiled most likely are GBA, PSX emulators from the likes of ZodTTD and Exophase.
The Console is unlike all before just the creation of Homebrew Fans but homebrew fans with a vision of console not tied down to any overbearing company who want everything their way. The Pandora will be a launch bed for many amateur coders, make no mistake the big gaming companys watch the homebrew community, every homebrew scene is watched and many scenes have coders who themselves are employed to work on the consoles they release homebrew for.
Whilst no one expects the Pandora to dent the PSP or DS if it can entice a new generation of young amateur coders to get a foothold in the gaming community then it makes the homebrew community even more important, think of us as a stepping stone to the commercial gaming world.
The Pandora will if all goes well be like the Dreamcast and the GP2X before it a scene that has many commercial homebrew releases and with a console that is in effect a Pocket PC/Gaming Console Hybrid with TV out, Wifi, Bluetooth its a real mouthwatering system.
Yes i wont get rid of my commercial games systems such as PS3, Wii, DS and PSP (my son owns a 360) but im very much looking forward to a very interesting console and the release will bring even more attention to the world of homebrew and that benefits all the different homebrew scenes, the more we show the world that homebrew is a strong worldwide community spanning every console and every race and that homebrew isnt about piracy then as a massive network of sites we can all benefit from some excellent releases from the very talented coders from around the world.
ok enough of that :P
