By the end of this year, gamers will see the release of several Android-based consoles from Ouya, Nvidia, BlueStacks and even MadCatz. The question is - will they thrive alongside the Xboxes and PlayStations or will they crash and burn?
For them to crash and burn they would have to have taken off first.
Right. They're sitting on the runway with Xbox, slowly inching away from it so they don't get charged or spied on.
Really they should't have bothered with the device, As new Snapdragon 800 and Tegra 4 are out and newer chips will be released next year. The mobile market is good for gaming from a set perspective. but its not enough to take the market by storm. Really just for those select few who have a interest in it like myself.
A big draw to this console is that there a several great emulators to play all the last gen games (nes, snes, ps1, genesis, etc). Plus all the cheesy, short cell phone games that you can shake a stick at from the android market (if you don't already have a smart phone). I could see this having some appeal for some people, just not a lot.
