Firefly Link[edit]

Yeah, I was just wondering, under exclusive games, it has a game called Firefly listed. However, if you click on the name Firefly, it takes you to a wikipedia page about the insect. Should this link be removed until a page about the game is created?

poorly manufactured[edit]

I'm quite surprised that there's no info on how poorly made Zodiacs were, between me and my friend we went through five of them, all of them died to the wandering thumbstick problem, Zodiacs would usually only last a few months before the joystick on them would start registering movement when stationary, it would always be in a certain direction too (though which is a memory which eludes me presently). Tapwave were good with replacing them though, even towards the end. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:23, 4 August 2008 (UTC)[reply]

I think it was more hit-and-miss, rather than them being uniformly bad - not entirely surprising for a new company's first-generation product with a small production run. If they'd made and sold more, they probably would have improved the production process or sourced better parts. I must have lucked out or just been extra gentle with mine, because I never had joystick problems in years of use; I did have lots of problems with the shoulder buttons, though. Anyway, this is all a bit personal-research-y, so it probably shouldn't go in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:51, 25 July 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Overlinking in lede?[edit]

Can anyone see any problems with changing the three-link "mobile entertainment console" in the lede to just "Handheld game console"? I could be wrong, but I think it's more succinct without losing context. DennisIsMe (talk) 16:38, 21 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Reference removed[edit]

With fewer than 200,000 units sold, the Zodiac is the third worst selling handheld console, after the Gizmondo and the R-Zone

The above was referenced by this page ... but that doesn't mention the Zodiac at all, never mind sales figures. As such, I've removed the reference. Loganberry (Talk) 11:39, 13 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]
