Lenovo subsidiary Eedoo has announced it will release its long-in-development, motion-controlled iSec console in selected Chinese markets in December, ahead of a wider launch in early 2012. The system, which sports a depth-sensing camera from Belgium's SoftKinetic, will be available in red, white and black cases for a price of 3,000 yuan ($470), according to a spokesman quoted by PC World. Details were not available on software availability and pricing for the system's launch, though previous demonstrations have shown games involving sports, platforming, exercise, martial arts, monster slaying and skateboarding. The iSec was first announced last August as the eBox, and originally targeted for an early 2011 launch, before multiple delays attributed to the need for technical refinements. Dedicated video game systems are technically illegal in China under a Ministry of Culture edict, but Lenovo is reportedly trying to get around that restriction by marketing the unit as a "Home Entertainment System." While there are no announced plans to release the iSec in other markets, Eedoo has previously said it would consider wider release if the unit reaches one million sales in China.
