When I first heard about this, I assumed it was a Retron competitor for some reason. That I could get behind. Upon further investigation (i.e. reading anything past the headline). I'm kinda disappointed if I'm being honest. At it's core, I think it's a very cool idea in concept, but the whole thing seems to be fast approaching Ouya levels of vastly overestimating what consumers want and therefore over-promising on what you'll be able to deliver.
I'm curious to see how it all turns out, but optimistic is not a word I would use to describe how I feel right now.
