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, which makes a bit pricey for an Android TV box, but pretty inexpensive for a video game console.

The Warchief game console was developed by Qihoo 360 and Xiacong and comes with a wireless gamepad, a Wiimote-style controller with a gyroscrope for motion controls, and a webcam which can detect gestures so you can interact with some games using your body.

The system has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, four USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and HDMI output with support for 4K video playback.

Games for the Warchief are available through an included app store and game developer Gameloft announced last month that three of its titles would be available for the console: Modern Combat 5: Blackout, Asphalt 8:Airborne, and Wild Blood.

  1. i just realized, this console is theoretically way more powerful than the xb360 and ps3. Remember the TFlops of Tegra X1, Well other factors is also needed to be considered.

  2. This whole “Android TV” usage things is a problem. I can see why Google picked the name to use but the market is clearly confused with so many “Android TV boxes” or the like out there – even if they aren’t generally sold in top retail shops in the West.
    Personally I’m hoping the big Nvidia announcement next week is an actual “Android TV’ console running an x1 chip. Though I’m 50/50 that it is some kind of virtual or augmented reality headset instead.
    We’ll see.

  3. I’ll stick to my big clunky Core i7 PC rig for all it’s bulk and expense.
    For me as soon as we start talking Android and gaming it’s all about retro console emulation, and the stuff I’m into is still handled beautifully by my dumb ol Ouya console.

    While they are closer than ever I don’t think they’ve sufficiently broken down the controller barrier on Android yet.

  4. They are using horde logo from World of Warcraft on their product like nothing, Blizzard probably wouldn’t be that happy to see that.

    1. Lok’tar Ogar, my friend!

      If it wasn’t for the fact that its in china, this company would probably already be in a lawsuit.
