The former USSR enters the console race

8 replies 155 views Edited Feb 24, 2013

What are the odds that the former USSR will create and launch a console?  That'd be something.  I think it will happen - given my inside information.

This is one of the most random things I've seen lately.  They don't have the technology to make a competitive console.  Not unless they farmed everything out to other countries.  I'd say the odds of this happening are far below 1%.

It'd be just like their cars.

 

Stolen cars (more or less) from about 20 years ago, but with esbestos brakes and uneven tires, and the worst product quality ever.

 

So if the USSR entered the console race, it'd probably be a red NES with the hardware from an Atari 2600, who's cartridge slot breaks after about a week.

Yes but, on an old black and white TV, set to UHF, it ought to do a decent job of playing Pong backwards.

I opened this thread expecting some news on a Russian video game console being released.

I was sadly disappointed. Smiley Sad

Probably zero. I doubt Russia or what was once the Soviet Union has any interest in that.

Why do people still refer to Russia and Eastern Europe as the former USSR? I find it odd that people can't name the countries involved or countries they are specifically referring to.

Anyways, I don't see why a company in those countries couldn't make one. They would just need to have a company that is willing to invest in technology for gaming as governments don't create consoles, companies do.
