    I do not trust their porting skills. Looks like Pcars3 is going to be a mess and they will have dev tool which will port all third party games on their console ? This is going to DOA and the name is horrible, looks like a boxed PC.

    'Simply 3DO' is my favourite suggestion so far.

    I expect SouljaGame compatibility to be high on the list of design priorities.

    The design looks like some crazy casemod for a desktop pc. Do you want to see this next to your TV in your living room? Questionable at least.

    A game company that made the flaming hot mess that was PCars 1 and the the almost as buggy mess of PCars 2 which seems to have dropped support now.
    Wants you to now buy a games console from them?

    Get outta here


    Master making the games better and more smash hits before even thinking about anything else

    So they wanna do it like Epic, give out the engine for free and than get a share from the profit. I only assume that currently the pc gaming market is atomizing with everyone having their own platform that it will be even more difficult for newcomers

    I hope just racing games come to it. It would be sweet if they set the bar for the racing games to go to. I like assetto corsa the best out of all so far on Xbox. As to me assetto corsa feels the most real and fun with the wheel and pedals. If this comes out and runners are other racing games come to it as well I will get this gaming device for sure. And maybe be done with Xbox.

    That would be far too niche. Seeing as the most powerful console on sale right now made its debut with no profit margin, I can't imagine keeping the Madbox exclusive to racing games makes any business sense.

    After launching the Mad Box

    Slighty Mad Studios, best known for making Project Cars, goes bankrupt.

    I've read all the comments on GTPlanet - most by people much more knowledgable than me (including the one above) and can only come up with two conclusions:

    1. This is a joke by SMS / Ian Bell.

    2. This is a high end PC boxed as a console for commercial not domestic use. It will be very expensive and made to run the Pro versions of the software released by SMS (and others) such as their recent Pro software for the Porsche Car Company.

    I can't get this product to make sense unless it is a very expensive ultra-niche product for commercial use, but then I struggle with the looks and the large footprint, which makes me think it is just a joke by SMS.

    Au contraire. Not my opinion only. Numerous others agree.

    Nothing whatsoever about how many people believe something to be so makes it so.

    You did NOTHING to do that at all. OPINIONS are JUST that. OPINIONS. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    No and that was the point, there is really nothing to fight about, it's all about personal preference, best games tells me nothing, like God of War 2018 won the GOTY title, I don't like the God of War games, so it's not my GOTY, for me RDR 2 is GOTY 2018, again it's about personal preference.
