Panasonic's Jungle

Recommended Posts

So, Panasonic is going release a new handheld system called the Jungle. If you haven't heard of it, you can check out some stuff here:

 

http://www.engadget....-gets-shown-of/

 

As well as their official site:

http://welcometo.thejungle.com

 

And here are some features:

  • Full QWERTY keyboard
  • Touchpad
  • High Resolution LCD screen (possibly around 5"-6")
  • D-Pad controls
  • Mini HDMI port to connect to a TV
  • Micro USB Port

Apparently, this handheld's main focus is MMORPG's. They keep touting that you can play Battlestar Galactica on it. But what else? On the picture, it seems like Runescape concept art is pictured:

Does this mean that Jagex is partnering with Panasonic and will bring "Runescape mobile" out on it? What do you think of this? Would you buy it if true?

 

EDIT: On their main page, under About Us, it mentions both the Kalphite Queen and TzTok-Jad. Runescape confirmed.

It looks small in the picture by the keyboard. No good if the thing's too small to be usuable. Could be just the angle of the picture :???:

Hmm. PcWorld is saying that it's a 5-6" LCD screen they think. I'm not sure how it would work to play, but who knows. That's just an estimate.

Hmmm...I don't see people playing on portable devices as much these days like they used to, like the DSI's. Maybe its just a fad thing. I'd rather play on a big screen in front of me, wheter its a laptop or the desktop but people went nuts for the IPAD so maybe this will follow suit (*whispers* not sure if thats a fad thing too but only time will tell).

If it's good enough to run High Detail smoothly, which it should considering they say it can run Battlestar Galactica, I'm sold. Runescape would be a fine game on a portable... console? Netbook? Whatever.

 

On the other hand, it would be hilarious if Jagex had no idea Panasonic was using their art.

Well, the last Panasonic console, the 3DO, was 699 dollars. So, better start saving now.

I've been playing some RPG's on my iPod Touch, and my main issue was it was a mega PITA to move, my fingers got tired using a virtual d-pad, and control wasn't as smooth. This looks promising.

I don't like handhelds at all. Going to get a new phone later that can run RS.

I remember clicking on an ad on the rs homepage that led to a survey for a product like this.... Maby this is the fruition of it? One of the questions on the survey was what MMO's do you play, and RS was listed.

I'd love to play Runescape on this thing. Certain skills would be a piece of cake. I could cut ivy while I take notes in class. :P

Yeah I did a similar survey too, Tbh it is the only way Jagex get anything is by making us push it.

 

I hope, as it says they are working with developers that Jagex design a new UI for mobile gaming the standard client sucks on tiny screens.

An interesting development. I'll be keeping my eye on this in the future, even though I have no chance of being able to afford it.
