VIDEO GAMES: Is this the future of computer gaming?

I'm sure by now you've all probably heard about the gaming tablet that was revealed at CES this year. But due to the combination of me being out of town and under the weather I haven't gotten a chance to talk about it yet. So let's take a quick look at Project Fiona!

It's been no secret for sometime now that there is a market for those who want to play games on their iPhones, Androids, iPads, etc. Well how about a pad that is dedicated to gaming? We already know that the 3DS is now selling well but the Vita looks as though it may struggle with its own sales. Although this may be an indication that there is no longer a demand for a dedicated gaming handheld, Razer is still developing a pad dedicated to gaming.

Although it is still a concept at this point, Razer has emphasized that they want to bring the product to the market by the end of 2012. It will run on an Intel Core i7 processor and it features Windows 8, Wi-Fi networking, front and rear cameras and the capabilities to run "standard" PC titles. I'm not sure what they mean by standard so we'll have to see if it can run ALL PC titles. Anyways, the concept design looks intriguing and Razer has stated it will cost less than $1,000. But if people aren't willing to fork over $250 for a Vita will they really want to spend close to $1,000 on a tablet for gaming? Time will tell.
