Oh look, another Vita killer, the Smach Zero hoves into view

Since the undead Vita can't be killed, despite Sony's best efforts, you'd have thought that other companies would not bother with handhelds any more. Snail were talking about bringing its W3D west recently and now we have the Smach Zero. Out in 2016, this is an indie effort that will be formally unveiled at Gamescom. Good luck guys!

The Smach Zero, a portable Steam machine that can link to your Steam library (presumably both local or streaming off the PC) can play over 1,000 PC games. Its got pretty low resolution for a modern era device, otherwise seems pretty meaty.

It boasts:

  • AMD embedded G-Series SoC "Steppe Eagle
  • (Jaguar-based CPU and GCN-based Radeon graphics.)
  • 4 GB RAM memory
  • 32GB internal memory and SD Card Slot (Hear that Sony - Memory!)
  • 5-inch touch screen with 720p resolution
  • Configurable tactile gamepads
  • HDMI video output connection
  • Wi-Fi conectivity
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • 4G mobile network connectivity (PRO model only)
