DXG dishes out 5Mp camcorder with games

Computer games on your camcorder? That's just crazy

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

California-based DXG has launched a new ultra-compact digital camera/camcorder that doubles as a portable entertainment centre. The DXG-589V features a 3in LCD Screen that rotates to a Gameboy-style shape for playing 20 built-in video games.

DXG-589V camcorder

The DXG-589V features a digital camera (up to 10 megapixels) and VGA camcorder (MPEG-4 video at 640 x 480 and 30 frames per second) plus said video game player, but it also sports a digital music player, and can record direct video from TVs or DVD players: video files can be saved onto SD cards.

Shipping at $200/£100, information was not yet available on dimensions, formats supported by the music player or whether it would be available in the UK. In fact, the news was so...er, new, that the product wasn't even up on the manufacturer's website yet.
