China’s first Game Console, iSec, unveiled

China doesn’t allow Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo’s consoles to be sold inside its territory. That is why any console that is made available today in China will be the first console available for sale in the country – aside from the knockoffs.

iSec, China’s first gaming console

Today is one such day. Eedoo Technology, a Beijing company that’s funded by Lenovo – China’s largest PC maker –has unveiled the iSec, renamed from the “eBox” announced last year, that can be called China’s first gaming console.

iSec uses motion-sensing technology similar to Kinect, and many of the games demonstrated at launch, focused on exercise. iSec doubles as a Karaoke machine too (not surprising, as Karoke is quite popular in china and south East Asian countries).

The iSec’s games are being developed by studios in China, North America and Europe. Eedoo Technology plans selling the unit overseas, but only after it sells one million units in China. The iSec’s price was not disclosed. --------
