It would be a start toward having something sort of like what sighted people are using, although these titles are quite old. Like I say, though, it would be a start. I know it would be too early to probably know, but what about hardware and software updates to make the console able to be played by both blind and sighted gamers on an equal basis? The games for sighted gamers would be far in the future, and, by that time, we would still be left in the dust. Even so, I think I would be interested, particularly in sports games, trivia games, and strategy games that are totally blind friendly.

Subject: [Audyssey] Consoles (was Re: my frustration with the blind gamingcomunity.)


Speaking of console games.
Would there be any interest in a console built with the blind gamer in mind?
I have access to something that could easily be turned into a console with games built from scratch that could easily be played by blind and visually impaired users.
There would be games like asteroids, space invaders, and the like.
(yes, all your old favorites) built for a console, and completely accessible.
I could do this, but I'd have to know there would be an interest for such a thing. The consols would cost roughly $200, and the games would be on cartridges just i like the cartridge systems out there now.
And, a developer kit could be sold so others could develop games as well.
It would plug into your tv, (not your computer) but it would be a true console system, and would be as acessible as I could make it. With the cost of the initial console and programming hardware and such though, it couldn't really sell for less than 200, and even then, I'd only be making $31 on a sale, which really isn't much all things considered. But, I'd do it if there would be an interest in such things, as I believe it would be a great thing to have a console system we could play ourselves.
Anyone else interested?
