Right now the gaming community is dominated by three companies – Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. It’s been that way since Microsoft came out with the Xbox more than a decade ago; however, a new player may come onto the scene to challenge the three for gaming’s top spot. Google is apparently working on a gaming system of its own.
The system will operate via an Android operating system while supporting all of the newest cross title games too. Reportedly, this is in response to rumors that Apple is trying to develop a gaming console of their own.
This information comes out shortly after the OUYA, a Kickstarter funded open-platform console device that runs a Google-based operating system, released on Wednesday. The console sold out on Amazon quickly, but it’s still too soon to see if it’ll have any lasting impact in the gaming industry. New consoles come out all the time, but few make it big like the Playstation and Xbox.
I think this is a great idea simply because I can see Google making a really cheap, top notch system. They’d give us all the same processing power and whatnot as the PS4 for half the price! But then again I could be wrong.
Would you buy an Android-based gaming system?
