Beijing-based game console manufacturer 17Vee, a subsidiary of mobile phone solutions provider and mobile and online game developer China TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology (Nasdaq: CNTF), has announced its new 17Fly motion gaming system. Tony Kong, CEO of TechFaith's gaming business, 798 Entertainment, said the product will officially go on sale after the Chinese New Year holiday (January 23), both as a standalone motion sensor device and embedded in TV sets. 17Vee will reveal its TV set manufacturing partners after the holiday.
Editor's Note: According to a 17Vee representative, 17Vee is responsible for its eponymous motion gaming console, while another TechFaith subsidiary, 798 Entertainment, develops games for the console. To use 17Fly, users need to install a mobile application on their Android or iOS device allowing it to function as a controller. 17Vee has yet to release the mobile apps, and plans to announce further details on December 16.
