  1. Super neat how they basically use it as a dock set up. I wish Wii U would have done this. I would love to see a PS4 targeted tablet too. When this one is put together ig reminds me a little of the Sega Game Gear I had as a kid. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/16/Sega-Game-Gear-WB.jpg
