Zeebo console launches in Brazil, gets publishersIt’s the console with a name only a performing circus clown could love. And it is now out and about, doing it’s thing in Brazil. According to UOL Tecnologia, Tectoy’s Zeebo game console is on sale now in Rio de Janeiro. After that it will spread across the rest of Brazil later this year.

The system costs R$499 (Or about $299) and ships with three games in its memory. FIFA 2009, Need For Speed Carbon, and Brain Training. They are all in Portuguese, if you were wondering. The console also ships with credit for three free downloads, which are: Prey Evil, Quake, and Quake II. Video below.

Zeebo console launches in Brazil, gets publishersWhether there’s room for a new next gen console or not, Zeebo is squeezing it’s way into the lineup. And since there’s no way it would stand out in the US or Japan, they’ve decided on Brazil. The idea is to get into developing countries that maybe Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo have ignored.

Getting your console positioned in the right country is one thing, but you need to have support from the game publishers. Good thing Zeebo has managed to get some big names now. EA Mobile, Namco Networks, THQ, and PopCap have all signed on to support the Zeebo.

More details on Tectoy’s Zeebo 3G gaming consoleLast week we told you about Zeebo, a new 3G network-based gaming console that’s launching in Brazil soon. At the time there wasn’t a ton of detail, but now more info has come to light. Tectoy will be partnering with cellular carrier Claro, whose 3G network will carry the free-of-charge connection, and also Qualcomm, who owns 43 percent of the company.

The Zeebo will apparently run on a BREW-based OS, with an ARM CPU running at 528MHz, a Qualcomm Adreno 130 graphics core, 1GB NAND flash memory, 160MB RAM, 128MB DDR SDRAM and 32MB stacked DDR SDRAM. Who are they setting their sights on? The “growing middle class” of developing countries. The Zeebo will launch in Brazil and developers think that the downloadable-content format should help combat piracy. The cost of the system should be about $264 US and games will cost betwee $3-13 US.

Tectoy’s Zeebo gaming consoleTectoy has announced the Zeebo, a 3G network-based gaming console that will launch in Brazil in July of 2009, then show up in other markets after a few months. Apparently the idea is that the console forever connected to a 3G network. That conection won’t cost the gamer anything, with all the games and content paid for and downloaded through the network.

Action Hero 3D, Evil Prey, and Quake will come preloaded on the console. Yeah, not some of my first choices either, but they aren’t dead set on competing with the Wii, Xbox 360 or PS3 obviously. They’re trying to appeal to those who can not afford expensive consoles and games, despite a crazy $599 price tag itself. Games will cost between $10 and $30. Fail.
