What if Google did video games?

Analyst opinion from Rob Enderle, Principal Analyst of Enderle Group:

"The gaming market is in a real mess right now. We have 4 active game systems the Nintendo Wii, the Xbox 360, the PS3, and, not to forget, the PS2, which outsold all of the others last year. On the PC side, we have Windows XP games, Windows Vista Games, Flash-based games, and some folks are still porting to the Mac...

Someone like Google who can come at the segment with a fresh perspective to make this work both technically and financially."

The story is too old to be commented.

This is the best time to be a gamer ever. whether you love 360, ps3 or wii you have some of the best games ever coming out to play. The only thing wrong is that these companies and analysts want a unified system so they can reduce their risk. Who cares I don't want to buy a piece of crap for a game. They want us to buy what they sell and don't really care if it is good or not. I say let the competition continue, until the decision making power is out of the hands of publishers and in the hands of developers.

you speak of be focused on the games, instead or the console. The least powerful console is still got a couple of the highest rated games SMG, Smash Bro. Brawl, and the most powerful is just coming into its own at the end of 2007, and 2008 is looking good. If there was only one format, there would be lower developing costs and no dispute over which one to buy. Also the hardware would be reliable because there would be no "rush to bring it out before the other guy syndrome". As long as there is a schedule to release a new system every few years (5-6) so that we see advancement.

I think it could be great for the industry. Cause realistically, the Manufacturers rarely make money on the console for the first few years anyway. The money is in the games.
