Zeebo ready to launch in Brazil
Zeebo – a new download-only gaming console is set to launch in Brazil this June.
Although the system does not offer the same level of technology as current generation systems (the chipset has been compared to a high end smartphone), the creators hope that the system will find a market based on pricing and the ease downloading games.
“Brazil is a videogame savvy marketplace and is the perfect place to launch the Zeebo videogame console and its completely wireless distribution system.”
The Zeebo will launch for about the same price as a PlayStation 2 (the dominant system in Brazil right now). However, because legal PS2 games can cost as much as $100 there is a huge market for pirated games which sell for about $10. Legal Zeebo games will cost approximately $12.
This will be interesting to watch.
