Android Consoles- Will they Challenge the Big 3?

Last year one of the smash hits on Kickstarter was the OUYA console, an Android based system that is being developed as a home console. Since then there have been rumors of Valve releasing their own console to move into the home console market, as well as the GameStick, another Android based console being developed and receiving funding. With the sudden influx of new consoles, should Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo be worried? (Dev, GameStick, Industry, Microsoft, Next-Gen, Nintendo, Ouya, Sony, Tech, Valve)

One simple word "NO!"

Not so much challenge as "erode" the market ever so slightly. They will definitely contribute to the decay of the tradition console market, especially when Android TV's start finding their way out of Asia and into living rooms around the world.

But will they compete with the likes of PS4 and Wii U? Not hardly. Again, the key word is erosion.

I see them as 2 totally separate markets. Console gaming is thriving and this niche Android is unproven that it can successful transition from cell phones.
