Elonex‘s iGame device turns an iPhone stand into a gaming console. The iGame can be used to house an iPhone and stream content to a connected TV. Alternatively the device can be used as a gaming console similar to a Wii with motion sensitive controllers.
Elonex’s head of strategic relationships Simon Le Jeune is talked about expectations,
“Our expectations are professionally and realistically based on our own research,” he told MVC.
“Early indications are that we have excellent prospects of a great success. Our initial sales are giving us cause for concern about meeting demand before Christmas hits.”
One goal of the device is to allow game retailers to start making money from the iPod peripherals – a source of cash that the general and music retailers have dominated too date.
It remains to be seen if the games are good enough to appeal to gamers and game developers.
