Spawn shipping HD-720 gaming console hub

Spawn Labs has made good on promises to ship its HD-720 gaming hub. The device allows users to play their Xbox 360, Xbox, PS3, PS2 or GameCube games even while away from home. It connects to the consoles via A/V and a USB cable, as well as a broadband network via an Ethernet cable. The device is similar to how Slingbox works, but has two-way communication and allows for playing games in real-time. It should also let friends play a two-player game using the same console from their house that could be in another state or country.

Thus far, only Windows systems are supported, while HD gameplay requires a dual-core CPU. Playing in standard definition requires a 500Kbps speed for every remote player connected through the system, while gaming in HD calls for a minimum download speed of 2Mbps. Speeds of 1Mbps (for SD) and 3-5Mbps (for HD) are recommended.

The HD-720 is shipping now, priced at $200, with an adapter for each specific game console priced at $40. [via Engadget]
