One of the more out-of-the-left-field news stories to have come in recent months has been Slightly Mad Studios abruptly announcing that they will be putting out brand new console, and that they are already in talks with tech companies regarding its production. Their plans for the console sound incredibly ambitious, and it is extremely bizarre that the developers of Project CARS games, which are very good, but hardly chart topping bestsellers, are apparently attempting a venture so risky.
But they seem to be pushing through with it for now anyway. For instance, on Twitter, Slightly Mad Studios CEO Ian Bell shared a bunch of concept renders for what he hopes the new console will look like (the internals are blurred, because they’re not finalized. The bigger news is that you can see the internals from the outside).
This appears to be very similar to the kind of design language that, for example, Razer uses with its products. I’m sure there are some people in the world who love this. I just… hope this isn’t actually what the final product looks like.
