The Medius was an entertainment device and multimedia console created by Dillon M. as a product owned by T-Games as part of their official products lineup, and was the first T-Games console to not be developed mainly by CEO Billy Anderson. It was originally going to be succeeded by the Skyton, but plans were scrapped as T-Games discontinued the Transfield line.
Two games were officially released for the Medius; Demonstrational Pong, which had shown the main features and capabilities of Medius, and Better Pong, by GemWay, which would be deemed the successor.

The Etymology of the word 'Medius' was originally coined as an amalgamation of Multimedia Nucleus, meaning the center of all media. However, in Latin, Medius alternatively means 'Middle' or 'Intermediate'. This meaning is on par with development considering the Medius' amount of system logic is not as large as the T-Chip in the NeXT.
The Medius was initially designed as a small-form factor music player that could become T-Game's unique music device. In fact, the first prototype had no screen, and was described as "a[n American] football made out of metal." However, once interest grew for features gaming consoles in LittleBigPlanet 2 never had, work began on expanding the system into a complete gaming device.
