The console can dual boot Windows 10 64-bit or Android 6.0. It’s unclear whether any games are pre-installed, but this should not be an issue as you could install your favorite games from Google Play or download/buy Windows games separately. The hardware is quite similar to Microsoft Surface 3, and you can check some games performance in that video.

 

Windows_10_Android_6.0_Portable_Game_ConsoleThe project has just launched on Kickstrter and they’ve already reached over 50% of their $100,000 funding target. PGS Lite require a $230 (early bird) or $280 pledge, while you’ll need to pledge $260 (early bird) or $320 for PGS Hardcore. The downside is that they don’t have not shown a prototype yet, and all images are 3D renders, but at least they are honest about it as they show “3D render” on their materials. Shipping adds $10 to the US, and $15 to the rest of the world, and delivery is scheduled for March 2017. If everything goes according to plans, an Apollo Lake version is scheduled for Q3 2017.
