hat needs to happen is some blind electronics and computer nerd needs to
design a gaming console specifically for us, a console so innovative
that it captures the attention of the media. It might prove our point to
mainstream devs and it might not.
Yes, and this is something I have put serious thought into for quite a
while. I am pretty handy with computer electronics as well as with
software development. However, the usual problems of time and money
prevent me from actually following through with such an idea.
Even assuming I actually constructed a working game console, wrote the
operating system for it, created a game development API the cost of the
thing would be out of the price range of most gamers here.
Then, we have the problem, as has been discussed before, that not all of
the accessible game developers are on the same page in terms of software
development. Ideally the game console would have all of the games
written in C++. Unfortunately, most of the accessible game developers
here don't know C++ and depend on Windows only languages like Visual
Basic. Clearly I would have to educate several accessible developers in
C++, my API, etc just to get them to port their games to the console. As
a result it is not at all a practical solution.
