M2: Multi-games Multi Media

In the same pavilion where Microsoft, SEGA, Ubi or Electronic Arts showed their latest news at the last E3, but there was something hidden and infinitely smaller, the small booth of a Chinese company that didn't. offered a new game, but a new console called M2. This time it's not a way, or a POP station, or any of the low quality pirate products that allow us to quickly exclude the concepts of China and video games. gold farmers from WoW. everything Conny offered in this booth was a portable gaming platform which, although not remotely competing with DS or PSP, deserves more attention than the scarce, and does not say the coverage made in the specialized media .

In all likelihood, this curious console gets its name M2 from the slogan it offers: Multi games Multi media. After a first glance, it is more than clear the clear legacy of memories (not to say that it shoots directly) that we can appreciate both in its design and its functionality. Touch screen, two cameras, dogs raising games … Hummm, it sounds to you, right? And that's not a novelty that China has cloned all kinds of electronic devices for years, but in a recently talked-about company is Meizu, whose products are clearly Apple's example, but it does not matter that they should be happy with the quality. It's similar to what happens to these consoles developed by Conny Technology from its offices in the Tsinghua Science Park, located midway between Macao and Hong Kong.

During our visit to the state of this company at E3, we had the opportunity to try what M2 offers us for a long time. To begin with, the size of the notebook is very similar to that of the Nintendo DSi without counting the top screen, or the same, 145mm wide by 72mm high and 15mm thick. It has a 3.5 "LCD screen and a 320x240xx resolution (slightly larger than that of DSi) and we can use it with both the built-in style and the fingers. In addition, within a motion detection system of 3 action, it allows the console to identify how we like it or if we move it and that it is used in certain games such as driving or jigsaw puzzles. Unfortunately we cannot give you the technical specifications of the console because we do not have it (we doubt that this information was made public), but we can say without fear that its power will be between A Game Boy Advance and a Nintendo DS.

What we can say is that when the console in our hands is very sturdy and with a good outer shell finish. Both the weight and touch seem quite adequate and the buttons have the return expected in a first division machine. In terms of ergonomics, its oblong shape makes it easy for a wide spectrum of players to play comfortably (my big hands stamp his Seal of Approval). In any case, you should use your answer for a long time to assess these issues.

Following the philosophy of the multi-media device, the M2 also features the functionality of a MP4, which allows us to listen to music, watch videos and images; and in turn has two cameras (one for photo's and one for video), which also has some applications in their games. There are also the classic options of Calendar, Notes, Calendar, Drawing, etc.

The most surprising feature of the console, however, is that it comes with a kind of controls that are very similar to those of Wii with which we can play some titles if we connect it to the TV. This modality includes a range of sports games (fishing, golf, snowboarding) that are clearly inspired by the popular Wii Sport.

They said that the console would be sold in one hundred titles in memory, but that they planned to do more to be distributed over the internet. It is important to highlight this aspect, as the console does not have a pattern, disc or similar slot, but we are talking about a machine focused on digital content distribution as Sony PSP Go. A digital distribution of content more secure as opposed to the so easy to copy patterns, and a decision by CONNY that will definitely be aimed at fighting the great pirate present in China before its facilities providing the presence of patterns. However, we also need to remember that the console will have an SD card slot to expand its storage capacity, an element that can be perfect for replacing the pattern slot when we talk about fraudulent practices.

As with the hardware, all the software is completely developed in China, so forget to see any of the best known franchises in these consoles. Although this does not mean that you don't have a permanent dj fan if you have the opportunity to play with it, because many of its games are clear imitations of well-known mechanics, but with graphs of the 16-year-old. Without going further, we can try a game that was a kind of guitar hero where the mechanics were the same, except that the main character was a horse that was dressed as "# ~" tumbler (you can make images of everyone in the gallery of photo's that accompanies this article). Similarly, we can also play a NBA Jam style basketball game with big-character characters, a Rayman platform, a Pokmon with robots, a vertical shooter of 1942, and so on. . Many of them include multiplayer features between multiple consoles.

In many of the games you can see the didactic seal of a company specializing in educational games for children such as CONNY, which has been working since 1994 on video games. And like the stand girl says Is the technical demonstration of the console, M2, not a professional console, it's for casual players. This is something we have no doubt about, but is also always grateful that the companies are putting their cards on the table and not trying to sneak a hurry. At the level of games, history does not go down, but surely those who have the audacity to investigate will play a good game (perhaps if your community program emulators get more interest in the most demanding sectors) . So, although M2 has not confirmed a release period or price, CONNY assures us that it plans to launch in Europe and that the price of the console can be between $ 130 – $ 200. Let's see if it's true and we see it here, since the GP32 doesn't have a solid alternative to the Nintendo and Sony monopoly.

*** UPDATE: CONNY has confirmed that the M2 console will reach the European market by the end of the year.
