Toshiba plans to flip the console gaming market on its head with their next-generation controller-less game console, the Shibasphere!
Big news today from Toshiba – they’re getting into the console game market! This morning Toshiba announced their next-generation console the Shibasphere! It’s completely controller-less and designed to directly compete with next-generation consoles coming from Sony (PlayStation 4) and Microsoft (Xbox 720).
Speaking about the new Shibasphere console, a Toshiba representative had this to say:
“Life will never be the same once you’ve entered the Shibasphere. Extraordinary innovation packed into every spherical inch makes this the most intense game console ever conceived by Toshiba. Forget controllers and cameras. The Shibasphere’s 809.3b infrared motion detection captures your every move in incredible high resolution and puts you right in the action. And with Toshiba’s exclusive Logical Aggression Monitoring, your gaming experience will be all smiles. It’s a real game-changer.”
A new trailer was released as well, which you can check out below. Enjoy!
