Is there room in the game console market for one more? Lenovo hopes so. The PC giant has confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that it's been hard at work on a game console dubbed the eBox. Development is now being handled by Beijing eedoo Technology, a company created by Lenovo to manage the console.
Given that company's name, it's no surprise that the eBox is coming first to China. You might be surprised to learn just how quickly the console expected to arrive, though. According to the WSJ, the eBox is due out before the end of the year.
Few details on the console are available at this time. However, this cartoon on the eedoo website suggests that the system will offer Kinect-style motion control that interprets player movements with a camera perched atop their television. The odds of the eBox brandishing next-gen graphics capabilities are probably slim, but it wouldn't take much to surpass the years-old hardware inside the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, let alone the antiquated silicon that fuels the Wii.
