    A New Console That Automatically Generates Games

    Iím somewhat surprised by this new development- a new console known simply as the OTON X, from EnGeniux is looking to shake up the world of gaming by automatically creating games without the need for human input. The consoleís official website is making tremendous promises

    Gamers crave challenge, unlimited game content, low cost games, and high quality games that wonít put them in the poor house!Ö Each OTON premium unit will ship with a built-in laser projection technology that allows gamers to project their custom game environments on any wall surface. The Star Trek holodeck is finally here!(Sort of!) Imagine requesting OTON to create your own personal simulated game environment and interacting with your projection! Even crazier -recreate certain times, events and places in history or explore the future with radical simulated projected environments!Ö We believe a game console should play anything, hence the name game console. OTON will support some of the most popular Android and Linux games that will be on OTON. The system will undergo updates regularly to support many game formats.

    Iím not sure what to make of it, to be honest. Besides the automated game creation, the official site also promises that the machine will run a custom version of Ubuntu (a variant of Linux- the open source operating system that the folks at Valve are hard at work porting games to), along with supporting Android. Iím curious as to how this machine will work- the OTONís official site mentions ďQuad-core (4 + 1 power-saving core) Four CPU cores are built in the ARM Cortex-A9 micro-architecture, and are clocked at 1.2 MHzĒ, but arenít most games for Linux built for X86 CPUs?


    My main concern regards the main feature- sure, level generation is nice, but how can this level generation create unique experiences like Chrono Trigger? It might make playable games, but the question remains as to whether or not theyíll be worth playing. Iím going to withhold additional commentary regarding that aspect of the system until I see the system in action.

    On the other hand, supposing the customized version of Ubuntu is well made and somehow supports the games we know and love (most of the stuff from Humble Bundles should run on the OTON), this could be an excellent machine- perhaps it will be, in some form or another, the fabled Steam Box that weíre still waiting on. It seems to already have a leg up on the Ouya, and Iím hoping to see where the thing goes. Iím curious as to how some of the promised features will work, the full stats are available on the official site, Iím hoping to see the game creation engine at work. The OTON also promises to make it easy to create custom games-perhaps itíll be a starting point for up-and-coming developers? Stick with us for further coverage of the console- if it works, it could turn the world of gaming on its head.


    Here also iS a link below to the full Q&A and full stats if the console from the official site

    This won't work. You're telling me this can generate new game on the fly? By what established parameters? Can it learn from player input? Can we adjust variables? Even under best circumstances this sort of technology really isn't viable. Can this function otherwise on the Ubuntu side? Maybe some, but its special premise doesn't see practical to me.

    No matter what race you are or what you look like or your sexuality or where you come from, We are all the same people and we are all bothers & sisters so love each other & don't let anyone tell you any different.

    Remember you can't choose what you are from birth but you can choose what you want to become.

    Just because you haven't seen them doesn't mean they are not there we all got to have something to believe in.

    Sounds like one of those apps that says 1000 games in 1 ( and all 1000 suck)

    What type of games are they talking about? console quality or mobile quality...

    We already have this on the PS3 though. It's called LittleBigPlanet.

    But yeah, this sounds crazy. I wonder how they'd pull it off.

    Supports Android. So you get to play crappy phone games on the wall? Ok whatever I won't waste my money here.

    I agree with Rapture I don't know how this would be possible. I can imagine the amount of bugs and glitches.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.
