Thanks to IGN Pocket for their hands-on preview of Tapwave's Zodiac handheld gaming system
. The author suggests: "Whether or not Tapwave has the marketing muscle to steal away important market share from Nintendo remains to be seen, but at the very least the company has made a huge first impression when it comes to handheld system design."
This Palm-compatible handheld
has custom 3D game titles, including Spy Hunter, which IGN found "...very reminiscent of the PC's early years with the 3DFX Voodoo card"
, but overall, concerns about lack of "hard partnerships"
with big publishers and the fact that the "price [$299-$399] definitely needs to come down"
have the previewer worrying that this "great handheld design with incredible technical potential"
may ultimately go neglected.
