What hardware do you have in mind? To me the software of this
actually seems like the easy part. There are loads of ways to make a
small customized linux image.
Just to get started....
Not quite so small but has loads of stuff you would need..
Horsepower wise though you are really going to have some beef to
compete with the graphics power of the Xbox or ps2 line of products.
That means the later nvidia or ATI cards.
A gaming console is also going to need some sort of low noise, smaller
type case setup.
Neither of the above is cheap. $300 is a would be a pretty good deal
for what you get if it wern't for the stupid DRM they use. Although I
think ps2 has linux dev kit for it dosen't it?
