GEM Box Microconsole to be demonstrated during E3 by EMTEC

A small company is creating a new avenue for the gaming business. If you're a gamer who would like to play casual video games on your television or take it while travelling, this new Microconsole might be just the thing for you. 


Basic information on it

GEM Box (Gaming-Entertainment-Multimedia) is designed by a EMTEC (a french company) and will be demonstrated during E3 this year. It cost only $99 and allows access to AAA and videogames such as Tomb Raider, LEGO, Batman Arkham, Hitman, Borderlands, Sleeping Dogs and other games that exist on GameFly Streaming, Android Gaming (Google Play) and PC mirroring.

The design

Looking at the compact design of the micro-console, it is definitely travel friendly but it is not certain how much the system can handle before heating up.

Similar to other consoles, it supports 4 controllers for multiplayer games and uses Gigabyte Technology motherboards to power it up. PC games can be streamed using the GEM Box to a monitor in the house: such as the TV.

Several popular apps are also available on it like Pandora, Spotify, and Youtube. So, if you're looking out for a small travel friendly microconsole, make sure to keep an eye out during E3.
