    I posted it here because it belonged, and is relevant to, Project CARS. I have no knowledge of the Soulja Boy's console, isn't he a rapper or something in the USA?

    Yeah, he's an older rapper from America. He invested a ton of money into an off-brand Chinese console a month or so ago and released it as the Soulja Boy console (idk what it's official name ever was) and for some reason, I just expected that article to be about that even tho his console is complete trash.

    I think (just my opinion) that with so many rappers springing up(in the UK too) that the Soulja Boy Console was just another marketing ploy, to make money. It seems more likely that a large development like Slightly Mad and the "Mad Box" could actually be a competitor to the PlayStation and Xbox. Could be the one to watch out for, I know I shall be keeping an eye on it for sure. It's still an early days yet project though...I'll keep you informed on how it goes ;)

    Oh yeah for sure, he's said in interviews how he's interested in getting into the market multiple times, and he finally did it, but not very well lmao
    Yeah, it seems like they actually care and I think it's really good for the industry because now PS and Xbox will have another console to look our for, so they'll have to up their game as well.

    Regardless how this pans out, competition always is good for the consumer, so bring it on.

    As for Soulja Boy.... Nintendo threatened to sue and he pulled his "console". He talked big about Nintendo "ain't gonna do shit" and within a couple of days he backed down lol.

    Yeah, this will probably go as badly as the Steam machine, Ouya, N-Gage, LaserActive, or the Gizmondo...

    I'm not trying to be negative or downplay Mad Box but let's be realistic. Playstation and Microsoft won't even bat an eye.

    Realistically, it's taken years for Sony and not so long for Microsoft, to get where they are now, they are Giants indeed to contend with, maybe that's why you don't see any other console muscling in. It would be good though for consumers to have another choice. I would imagine it to be one hell of a risk to take, but a great one to pull off...We shall see ;)
