Is Huawei working on its own MateStation game console?
This page has been translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket Ribbon) – Huawei is reportedly in the process of developing its own game console to compete with the power of Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo.
In a post on Weibo, tipster @TomatoPrince claimed that the Chinese manufacturer is eager to enter the gaming space – first by releasing its own gaming laptop and then with a game console he boldly called "MateStation".
After the sale of Honor – which released its own gaming laptop in 2020 – Huawei's gaming portfolio is largely empty. It is certainly not surprising that it wants to respond to a fast-growing sector.
However, it is somewhat of a surprise to learn that it wants to tackle the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S and Switch.

We've put together a list of games worth adding to your library, with plenty of bargains.
According to Pocketnow, comparisons are made between the "MateStation" plans and the established console ranges we already have.
The site also says it could strike deals with the likes of Tencent – who is also from China.
When a console is in development, we just see it competing with such lofty peers, at least globally. But a release only for China seems likely. A machine that focuses on the games that prove to be popular there – we see that rising.
After all, Microsoft and Sony historically haven't had the same impact with their consoles in the country as elsewhere. And the games themselves have faced tougher restrictions.
Perhaps a Huawei MateStation would be more widely received in the company's home country.
We'll let you know when we tell you more about this.
