Panasonic Developing Handheld Games Console

Written by Tech84 on October 9, 2010

Just when you thought that the gaming console business is already a bit too crowded , with the three giants namely Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo and not to mention the mobile phone business also setting  its sights on mobile gaming with smarter cellphones.  News comes in that  Panasonic is reported to return to the video games business that it abandoned more than a decade ago.

The new device will aim to challenge traditional console makers Nintendo and Sony and a growing set of smartphones and tablet computers that play games, Dow Jones Newswires reported

It quoted a Panasonic spokesman as saying the company is developing a product called the “Jungle”, with other sources saying that the device was a game machine.

In the early 1990s Panasonic released a home console called the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer, but with a 700 dollar price tag,  it was a tad bit too expensive and was a total flop so Panasonic had it discontinued and eventually quit the console gaming business and focused on home electronics.
