    PGS = Portable Gaming System

    Crazy specs on the Titanium edition which is priced competitively with Pyra... For instance, 16GB of RAM.

    But no keyboard, no linux. It runs Windows.


    Thoughts?

    Complete vaporware since 2016. No development, no chance.

    I saw this in the new threads section and was scratching my head. I thought everyone on the planet knew this was a vaporware scam.

    To be fair to PGS they did hire a chinese HW company to design and make the PGS PCB with M3-7Y30. In fact they recently posted a pic of their first PCB proto.
    They have also made a new mockup of the case with near final design

    Of course this doesn't mean it will absolutely happen, they have a long way to go yet.
