Slightly Mad Studios Makes the Mad Box
Did you hear that Slightly Mad Studios are making their own gaming console?
Oh, wait... You guys probably have no idea what I'm talking about, do you?

OK, I'll spell the story out for you:

Slightly Mad Studios are the creators of sim racing franchise Project CARS. I haven't played the games, but I hear that they are pretty good racing simulators.
A recent Tweet from CEO Ian Bell has teased the existence of a console platform that they plan to release in a few years - rough estimates at about 2022.

Little else is know at this point, but this is as much as we know.
I got this information from GTPlanet, but there is an exclusive article on Variety on this subject.

I don't know, guys...
The idea of a game developer studio making their own console sounds like a major risk. And one that could potentially backfire.
We've seen this kind of thing happen before in the past, to disastrous effects. 3DO, anyone?
Plus, a lot of these projects just end up getting cancelled, anyway.

What do you guys, think?
