Just about everyone in the gaming industry has to accept the fact that Apple's iPhone 4, iPod and iPad devices are, currently, among the best-known mobile gaming platforms, more popular than the Sony PSP and rapidly reaching Nintendo's DS portable gaming console, and for this reason, any device capable of leveraging this popularity provides quite a high level of interest.
And this is also the case with the i-Vision Game (or IPSPG100A, if you prefer) from Chinese company Sansonic, that seems to offer a very interesting set of features, including the possibility to play games on a TV set using a Wii-like control system.
Unfortunately, the product page is not exactly very clear, so we're not sure whether the games are played on the iPhone 4
/ iPod itself or from an SD card inserted in the console, but the second variant seems to be, sadly, the correct one.
So, while you won't probably be able to play your favorite iPhone 4 titles using a Wiimote-like accessory, you will be able to play videos stored within the smartphone's memory onto a TV set, given the fact that the i-Vision Game comes packed with a CVBS output.
The console itself is not exactly extraordinary, hardware-wise, as it sports a SPG293 MCU running at 162MHZ, 32 MB of SDRAM memory and 8MB of NOR Flash memory.
However, it's interesting to mention that the Wiimote-like controller system employs Bluetooth for control and has a 10-meter radius, while also featuring a 3-axis accelerometer.
Unfortunately, that's about all of the info Sansonic has provided on their gaming-console/iPhone/iPod dock, so it's not exactly quite clear what this thing can do, nor when or if it will become available on the market, not to mention the fact that pricing is still not yet known.
Still, it's interesting enough, so we really hope that it will actually make it into stores, at some point.
