Zeebo Ships in Brazil

Zeebo today said its unique game console has started shipping to its first market of Brazil. The game system will cost $247 but, as promised, is rare in having free 3G access; users can download games over the local cellular network without having to pay for a separate Internet connection. The launch edition also comes with three full 3D games -- Brain Training, FIFA 09 and Need For Speed: Carbon -- as well as permission to download ports of the first two Quake games as well as Prey.

The console maker hasn't said when the next batch of games will arrive but estimates that games cost between $5 and $15 depending on the title. Buyers use virtual points through the Zeebo online store rather than paying for games directly. Zeebo hasn't detailed if or when it plans to move to other countries but does hope to eventually drop the price to as little as $150 within a year. [via UOL Tecnologia]
