Beijing eedoo Technology Ltd, the video gaming unit of Legend Holdings Ltd, said the company's first multimedia entertainment console is set to hit the Chinese market on April 29, at a price of 3,799 yuan ($600) per unit.
Eedoo is the world's second company to produce a controller-free entertainment console, after only Microsoft Corp, said Jack Luo, chief executive officer of the company. Eedoo delayed the launch date for about a year because, Luo said, it needed time to “further improve the product and provide a better user experience”.
The CT510 console enables users to control and interact with the device without the need for a controller.
The target customers for the CT510 are mainly occasional rather than hardcore players, said Luo on Thursday at a Beijing news briefing.
The console will be pre-installed with eight games, such as Kongfu, dancing and gym exercises. It offers dozens of applications for family entertainment, such as watching high-definition movies and reading e-magazines.
Lenovo Group, Legend Holdings and Legend Capital co-invested in the newly launched company. Officials declined to disclose the investment figures.
