Zeebo, the Wii-Era Latin American Console, Receives Emulator Support
An ambitious developer, known as Tuxality on YouTube, is working on an emulator to revive the lost gaming history of the Zeebo gaming console. The Zeebo was an obscure rival to major gaming consoles like the Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3, but it only launched in two countries.
Back in 2009, the Qualcomm-backed Zeebo was introduced with a grand plan to target markets like Brazil and Mexico, where the prices of popular gaming consoles were too high for most people. Priced around $170 in US dollar conversions, the Zeebo featured built-in cellular 3G functionality and had support for approximately 40 games. Prominent game developers like Activision, Capcom, EA, Disney Interactive Studios, and id Software were onboard to create software for the console.
