My OWN GAMING CONSOLE!!!!!!!!

Me, and my ‘team’ are building a Game console, called Z-Qube, to see if we can do it. Give us feedback!

Team:

We will need:
Os creators,

multimedia (music, sprites, etc) creators.

The OS will be a basic OS, like just a Player Data screen, a signup/signin screen, and a game screen.

Don't know yet. Probably a TB ssd, a 8 GB Dual channel mem., and a intel 1150 mother board, and CPU. Maybe, I will make the os, because, I think it will be good for me.

Will you use a generic controller and make your own games for it?

If you're going to be making it based on PC hardware, I'd highly recommend making a full screen program that overlays on Windows or Linux instead of creating a completely new OS. It would give it compatibility with TF2, Minecraft, and some other games (even on Linux), would have better built-in APIs and would probably be more stable.

Back from hiatus?

That'll be really expensive. The SSD alone will cost around $1000 if one that big even exists.

Edit: It does exist, and I undershot. And that's the cheapest 1TB+.

I made my profile picture in 2011 when I was 12 and it is by far my greatest artistic achievement.

What language for the games?

I've been listening to…
Ogre Battle // Queen // Queen II // Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, Progressive Metal
Orion // Metallica // Master of Puppets // Heavy Metal, Thrash Metal, Instrumental
Damage Inc. // Metallica// Master of Puppets // Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal
Snow (Hey Oh) // Red Hot Chilli Peppers // Snow (Hey Oh) // Soft Rock, Acoustic
Who Wants To Live Forever // Queen // A Kind of Magic // Power Ballad, Soft Rock
I suggest you listen to…
For a influential playlist: Damage Inc and Orion. Both of these songs are part of the album that revolutionized heavy and thrash metal forever.

You could also emulate old games and make an ultimate classic console.

This really just sounds like a custom PC build with controllers.

Lol. By then lots of new parts will be out. I can't help you right now unless you give me your current budget.
