Indrema Entertainment System

Console Information

The Indrema L600 Entertainment System was planned for release in mid-2001, however, the project was cancelled when Indrema went bankrupt that same year. The console was to be built around common computer hardware and based on the open source operating system, Linux. It would have been the first modern console to allow free software to be developed for it and made widely available via "GameXchange".

It would have also come equipped with a web browser (based on "Gecko"), MP3/Audio CD/DVD movie playback, HDTV support, TV features (record and playback live TV) and a built-in ethernet port for broadband connectivity (DSL, cable modem, LAN) and was planned to have 30 games available upon release (no titles were announced), one of which would have come bundled with the system.

Partnerships had been made with MetroLink, MetroWerks and CollabNet to provide open source applications, tools and a forum to promote game design and attract developer support. Had the system been released, it would have provided some tough competition for the other consoles on the market due to its huge range of media support options and the planned release price of only US$299.
