Product Description

A Portable Gaming System for Families - Kids Will Love, Parents Will Appreciate! The MG is an ultra-sleek, mobile gaming platform with a big 4" inch touch-screen that will connect you to the massive world of free Android games via Wi-Fi. MG is a great gift for kids who love video games. MG comes pre-loaded with great games from EA and Com2Us, including Need for Speed, NBA Jam, Tiny Farm and Slice It. The MG is light and features ergonomically designed rounded ends, perfect for two thumb, touch-screen gaming. MG is for those who want their own portable, pocketable device to play games on; but without the big expense of packaged video games or the monthly data plans that come with smartphones. The MG includes a proprietary notification function called "Remote Trust". The feature allows parents to view their kid's activity (downloads, what apps are used, and even time spent on the MG device) from a distance. Add your email to the system at set-up and then you can receive updates on your computer or smartphone about your child's MG activity. MG has partnered with SpendSmart(TM) Prepaid MasterCard(R) - to provide a way for parents to control spending. This feature will allow parents to set up a reloadable debit account for their teens and then create "game allowances" that the teen can use for micro-transactions. No more putting your credit card at risk. No more being bothered for every $.99 purchase. (SpendSmart is only available in the US market).

Just got this in the mail a couple of days ago and wanted to try it out before I put it under the tree for my son.

First, the packaging was awesome and the experience of opening it will be great on Christmas morning.

Second, the start up was easy. I wanted to make sure it was totally set up for my son because he's going to be anxious to get going on the games. It was only a few steps and I set it up with a Google account.

Third, I'm really impressed with the spending card. My son is 9 and while he's been good about asking before using my credit card for games on my iPhone, I like that he'll have his own card that I can pre-load and have him learn how to think before buying his games. I have a feeling he'll be choosier about now that he's spending his own money :)

The only downside is that since this is run on wifi, some games won't work unless without a connection. Other than that, the MG feels sturdy without being hulking or heavy. The screen says it is made of gorilla glass so I'm hoping it withstands the abuse my son will give it. It feels stronger than my iPhone though and he's put that thing through tough times!

I bought five of these for my kids for Christmas and originally it did not work well (see first review below). I sent them back for a refund. I will say that one of the best things about MG is the customer service team. I was contacted almost immediately and informed there was a fix in place that solved the freezing issues. I was offered a chance to try the MG again and sent a complimentary MG. My kids played on it non-stop for hours and NO FREEZING at all! The fix worked great... this is definitely a wonderful game for kids. Thank you MG team for the update and the chance to test it out.

I bought five of these for my kids for Christmas. I was excited when I opened them to set them up prior to Christmas - even downloaded a couple of Android games. Set up Google accounts, etc. and repackaged. Kids thought I was the best - youngest even called it her "phone". Shortly thereafter, the units started to freeze and shutoff randomly. You'd touch the screen and a totally different app would open. I did the pinch multiple times, but who wants to wait between playing over and over again to restart the unit! Very disappointing - shipping them back and now need to figure out what to get them as a replacement. smh

Moms and Dads it's time to get our freedom back! That is the freedom of having your smartphone back in your own hands where it belongs!

The MG Game System is a totally awesome NEW portable game system that runs off of the Google Play via Wi-Fi, which means your child has access to thousands of FREE apps and allows your children the freedom to download the apps they want with a prepaid allowance that their parents set.

It's super slim so your child will have no problem toting it around in their pocket just like a smart phone. It has a sleek design so your child will want to pull it out in front of their friends and show it off. But best of all? Us parents get our devices back! Woohoo!

With the $149.99 price tag it's totally affordable considering how much I paid for my iPhone. I am purchasing a second unit because my children and I loved the first one so much!

This portable game system is definitely a MUST BUY for older children, tweens and teens!

I bought 2 of these for my children for Christmas, but I had to play with one (secretly) when they arrived. It is a good size for their little hands and I think they will have a lot of fun with them.

If you're looking for a really cheap way to get into Android gaming this is a great product, just remember...you get what you pay for.

They claim that since this is built specifically for gaming that it's a faster gaming experience than playing on a phone but that has proven false for me. I have a 2 year old Droid phone and all the games on it run much faster and smoother than on the PlayMG. The PlayMG loads games slower and features way more stutter than I've ever seen on the phone.

The touch screen is pretty poor. One side is very unresponsive. Games where you need to "pop" things to earn points very quickly end up being harder than they need to be or impossible because when things pop on the unresponsive side you have to tap them 5 or 6 times or push really hard and you still miss them most of the time. Other games end up being hard or impossible because they have things you need to touch around the edges of the screen and on the PlayMG it's very difficult to touch anything along the edges. Even Angry Birds is difficult because as you try to pull your slingshot thingie back, the PlayMG will stop recognizing your touch and fire before you want to, leading your bird to just dribble forward 2 feet.

Battery life is terrible. Once again the 2 year old Droid phone I have will play games for hours without needing a charge. The PlayMG lasts an hour to 90 minutes at most. My unit spends more time on the charger or laying dead on the table than it does playing games.

The built in Wifi is by far the most annoying thing. It loses connection every 5-10 minutes. Every single time it goes to sleep, the connection goes off. Play a game, exit the game, you no longer have connection.
