A new video game console launched in China recently, featuring an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, Extreme Reality’s motion controls, and Google Android-based software.
The game console is called the Warchief, and it sells for about $160 (Warchief can be purchased in China only on sites like Taobao and JD.com for 999 CNY), which makes a bit pricey for an Android TV box, but pretty inexpensive for a video game console.
