Sorry, I fixed it.

Imagine having an app store where we don't have to wait for Sony to add simple features. Imagine using your android phone as a Wii U style tablet. This is the future.

From article
"Microsoft is already offering built-in Windows Phone OS with Xbox console and the company offers an Xbox SmartGlass companion app for Android devices"

So you just want to copy?

Android isn't capable as a console OS that needs high performance. Heck the OS itself isn't high performance.

I don't think any console manufacturer would be dumb enough to use Android. It's just plain and simple, not fit to the job.

"So you just want to copy?"

Just incorporating another technology like all consoles have done already dozens of times over. Heck if you really wanna go down the line of thinking of every detail being original, Sony didn't invent the controller. Or what about the vga, s-video, hdmi connections to the tv. USB and wifi technologies also. More copying if you wanna go down that line.

If I wanted a glorified tablet, I'd buy an Ouya, not a PS4.

All that could be offered through PS Mobile. It is capable of apps as well. On the plus side for Sony they can take their cut on sales, instead of letting Google do it.

If it ran a real android that'd be pretty awesome.
