The L600 was a
Linux-based game console/ computerwhich was in the process of being developed by Indremauntil Indrema ceased operations in April 2001. Besides game play, it was also to be a CD player, DVD player, web browser, and TiVo-like video recorder. It also would have been an MP3storage device.
Had the console been released, it would have cost USD$299 and had 30 games available at launch. It would have had 64MB
RAMand 96MB total. Its storage medium would have been 10GB discs. It would have had HDTVsupport. Indrema would have let regular end-users develop their games via their development kit . Most companies charge more than $10,000 USD for their kits. It would have had a GPU slide bay (it allowed you to slide out the graphics processor when a better one was available), an x86-based microprocessor running at 600MHz, and it would have been able to process 120-180 million polygons per second.
There was little hope for the L600, however, for its speculated release date was during the peak of Microsoft's
Xbox, Sony's PlayStation 2, and Nintendo's GameCube, and it was just one of the many independently developed systems that would never rise out of obscurity and gain much popularity, as the three aforementioned systems had already more than monopolized the home console gaming industry.
