Interesting. Looking forward to seeing what they've got.

Wonder if the Gather Round slogan's telling of their plans- multiplayer-focused streaming box, maybe?

So... say Google becomes a legitimate contender:

1. Can the market support more than 3 mass market console manufacturers?

2. Who has the most to fear from them?

As with so many things, Google may not be the first out of the gate on any given opportunity, but given time, they will eat your damned lunch if you aren't named Apple or Amazon.

Gamers are a fickle audience though; much more so than most. So they will have to make something truly compelling for enthusiasts to give a fuck.

They're really going full steam ahead with this. Has the market ever had four major players at the same time? Sega didn't last long at all last time that happened. Or did the Dreamcast die before the Xbox came out?

Yup, that is definitely the "idea" of video games, lol.

At this point I'm quite interested to see what this ultimately turns out to be. My money's still on an AAA streaming device though.

Those don't look like mobile games...
Hyped for this event, I welcome more competition into the console space with open arms (as a Playstation fan especially, keeps Sony from being complacent next gen)

Expectation that they won't have a significant impact on the current home console environment. But this is apparently what people thought when Microsoft and even Sony entered the ring, so we'll see.
