In a reveal that most likely had someone playing Guns N Roses somewhere, Panasonic has introduced the world to a new handheld gaming device, currently dubbed The Jungle. A machine specifically designed for MMO play, the current launch lineup consists solely of Battlestar Galactica Online. Resembling a netbook more than a DS, the system features a full QWERTY keyboard and two thumb pads. No further details are known about the device, but more is expected from Panasonic (whose last foray into gaming was the ill-fated 3DO) in the coming months.
From the Official Jungle website:
All we can say for now is that this mean little machine features a kick ass display, touch pad, keyboard, and other gaming controls that we’ll be saying more about soon.
Stay very closely tuned unless you’re tone deaf. And then you should keep your eyes open.
