Ad-Supported Game Console To Hit US

There's this portable game console, which is not Nintendo DS or Sony PlayStation Portable, and it is called Gizmondo, and it is coming to the US some time soon. The launch price of the regular console is set at $400, but for $229 the company will sell units that will display three 30-second ads per day, streamed over GPRS connection. The program is called "Smart Adds" and the company already partners with Reebok, Levi's, Sprite and Adidas. "Barcode or coupon will sometimes appear after ads, along with mapping directions on how to get to a retailer's nearest location. Barcodes can be scanned directly from Gizmondo screens." Nifty.
