Nintendo iQue player

Nintendo has released a N64 technology based console in China entitled the 'iQue player'. The consoles RRP is 498 yuan, or ~$60 US. This is great news. The console makers have targetted developed countries for too long, and until now, the lesser developed countries have been left out. Nintendo are the first console manufacturer to sell a video-game console in China. The only console market in China before this was the illegal market. The console will use a flash card, and games will be downloaded onto the flash card via the Internet or retailers for 49 yuan each. Bloomberg is reporting that "for the new console, Nintendo will sell Chinese-language versions of software originally designed for the company's older- generation game players such as Nintendo64, an older-generation game player that was succeeded by Nintendo's GameCube player. Nintendo will initially introduce about 10 titles for the Chinese player, including one featuring Mario, probably a mario 64 port . "

The console ships next month in Shanghai, Guanzhou and Chengdu before expanding to the rest of the country.



This is, of course, old news. But I still haven't seen pics. Your mission, should you accept it, is to find some nice, clear pictures of this "iQue", and post them in this thread.

This thread won't selfdestruct in 5 seconds, unless you really want it to.

EDIT: also, www.ique.com

It looks like a bastardised Dreamcast pad.

The controller is quite sucky, but the fact that it hooks directly into the TV is a big plus and a good idea. Maybe they'll make a few buck on it.

I REALLY like the DC controller. Almost as much as I dislike the XBox controller. Hmmmm... Should I import this thing?
