Abandoned consoles for Steam two generations ago.  This though.  This I am intrigued by.

Same here.  I like that it is offering innovations while potentially not abandoning what makes current gen consoles work like they did with the Wii and Wii-U.  If it's up to spec, this could potentially play all the 3rd party titles that aren't exclusive to either PS4 or XB1 which would make Nintendo actually be able to compete with them for once.  With Nintendo's 1st and 2nd party exclusives they could really make a dent in the current gen if they get all the ports and they are on par.

Looks cool.

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.

I have a ton of questions but Im very interested.
I want to know more about:
Battery life
Connectivity
Mobile vs static game quality?
I want to know more about the cartridges (Im assuming high storage sd cards?)
Third party support
Price point

All in all,it seems like they perhaps should have waited longer to give the market less time to react?
But it seems like genuine innovation.
