Das Archos GamePad

Endlich wagt sich auch mal ein halbwegs namhafter Hersteller auf den Markt für Android-Handhelds. Archos hat mit dem GamePad ein 7”-Gerät angekündigt, das mit ICS kommt, zwei Analogsticks besitzt und erstaunlich flach wirkt.

Weiterhin steckt im Gerät ein 1,5 GHz DualCore-Prozessor und eine “Mali 400mp quad-core GPU”. Erscheinen soll das Gerät Ende Oktober für $189.

Der Neogeo X Gold kostet $200

Wir hatten bereits vermutet, dass der angekündigte Neogeo-Handheld extrem teuer werden könnte und der jetzt veröffentlichte Preis von 200 Dollar ist schon heftig – selbst wenn man die integrierten Spiele mitrechnet.

900000 3DS in Deutschland verkauft

Nintendo hat in Deutschland 900.000 Geräte seiner mobilen Spielekonsole 3DSverkauft. Das sagte Nintendo-Deutschlandchef Bernd Fakesch dem Focus. Nintendo brachte mit der 3DS autostereoskopische 3D-Bilder in seine mobilen Konsolen. Seit dem Start im Frühjahr 2011 wurden weltweit rund 19 Millionen Geräte verkauft. Der Absatz kam allerdings vor allem nach einer deutlichen Preissenkung in Gang.
