The Nintendo 3DS is not the only new handheld system making news, because Panasonic is going to join the battle themselves. They are making a new portal gaming system; “The Jungle Handheld”. This is very interesting news because the device looks like a portal DVD player to me. The system will be online and even have an MMO game based on Battlestar Galactica of all things (which might be a lot of fun I might add).
Panasonic had this to say about their new gaming handheld: “this mean little machine features a kick ass display, touch pad, keyboard, and other gaming controls that we’ll be saying more about soon.” and their mission statement: “create an ecosystem around online gaming.”
Well, I do admit I’m very interested in what the company has planned for “The Jungle” and Panasonic has a pretty mean handheld market out there that won’t make things easy for them. More on “The Jungle Handheld” soon!
