I was thrilled when I heard about a new handheld gaming console exclusively for MMOs being developed by Panasonic. I found out about this news from watching an episode of Rob's Fantasy Factory on MTV yesterday night. Rob Dyrdek was selected to make a jingle for the jungle.



I thought it was fake at first until I remember that lots of great things come out of Rob's Fantasy Factory. After doing a little research, I found out that one of the games being developed for the device is actually coming from a game developer that specializes in free-to-play online games. Yep! Bigpoint is working on BattleStar Galactica Online for the jungle handheld. Does this mean the game will be free? As of right now, there isn't a lot of information about the handheld yet and whether the games will follow the free-to-play model. It is still underdevelopment and we can only speculate at this moment.



I am definitely getting my hands on one of these when it comes out! I will keep you guys updated.
