you should make a special game emulator version as in already with pretested working nes, gba, gbc, n64, ps2, etc... also you should make an interface for controllers maybe even as a low cost mobile world of warcraft computer id love it
it would be a hit with alot of gamers
other than that i would say you guys should just make it into a mobile computer kinda like a DSI with a full keyboard and a trackpad (like the motorola backfilp has where your finger would be either on the left or right side,
Thats a great Idea, but i think your missing the point: the whole purpose of the Raspberry Pi is to learn, or teach yourself how to do this type of things. Thats the real beauty of this: Its the ability to build small systems that do big things that you've always dreamed about, but never had the knowledge or funds to fufill. The greatest part though, is that they are graciously doing this as non-profit, for $25 or $35. To me, this is the opportunity I've waited for since i first used a computer at the age of 5.
And to that, i dearly wish there was a donation fund, as these will be worth a lot more to me then $25 or $35, and I'd love to give back to them. Perhapse a donation fund @ checkout when there is a release in November? Even if it wasn't for the Raspberry Pi team, you could set up like a sponsorship for people who need some for group projects? Like they pledge to make something useful to the community, and then they are donated on good faith, sortof like Kickstarter. Hell, I should listen to what I'm saying: If you guys dont want to do this, I'll try to, even pay into it myself.
