What ready to use the hardware we have now can be used as a base for home gaming platform runs on native Linux?
I think about some box in formfactor of old console computers like ZX Spectrum with embedded keyboard, mixes gaming and utility capabilities.
Maybe some hardware kits already available for a very few prices, with hardware has full support for Linux including hardware graphics?
I'm not targeting on concurrency with top-level game consoles, but especially focus on low-end side compares with old-style 16- and 8-bit games and pure native Linux development.
As a sample, it should be like Sony PS Classic with keyboard and Open Hardware sells lower than $50 as a ready to use hardware kit.
There are a number of reference boards available with Mali GPU support, although most of them are only shipped with Mali drivers for Android rather than Linux if you want GPU hardware acceleration.
If you want something less expensive (also less powerful), then perhaps the Raspberry Pi3 is also an option.
Kind regards, Pete
