Yeah, almost 100% sure Google is going to enter the market the 'easy way'.
My biggest concern is they're going to fuck up the market in some way and affect Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo's (and indies!) output. Google entering a market is NEVER a good thing for the existing market competitors.
b/c everyone assumed streaming, no one bothered to see if google is doing a traditional console. if they are, hope its not andriod though. andriod is more blooted than windows.If Google is indeed making a legitimate console comparable to Xbox or PlayStation, why are there not any leaks on it yet? We've seen far more leaks from MS and Sony in the past regarding their console endeavors. Shouldn't there have been a leak already that help us gauge the how powerful it could be? Even just from one, even unreliable, source.
On the other hand why Google would ever invest on exclusives first and third party, or even manufacturing physical versions of their games only for a streaming box?
It's gonna be a streaming box + streaming service announcement, probably. That's a pretty big deal, if you ask me.I really don't see why they would hype an event up so much just to put out a streaming box.
Obviously I could be wrong, but they must know that a streaming box is going to receive a pretty luke warm reception as most people just don't have the internet connection good enough for them to get excited about. Google must have people on staff that read forums like this and hardly anyone is up for streaming yet.
On the other hand they must see that gaming is getting massive and now want a slice of that.
If they're going to release a traditional console now it needs to be better than anything else or there no one will buy it.
