Nothing stops anybody from approaching me with this idea to build their own business.

I'm not a hardcore gamer myself but I think that the gaming haldheld could be awesome success (with proper 3D acceleration of course) since it would be first-of-its-kind.
There are so many good open-source games available which could be ported, and really IMHO rival proprietary platforms where every game costs about 50€/70$.
If it had WLAN for online games and even more a possibility to connect a mouse (USB host or bluetooth) for FPS and Strategy games it would be even better.
