Amazon: The Next Big Gaming Powerhouse

Amazon are now making their presence felt in another market – gaming. Though still a work-in-progress, Amazon descended on this path a few years ago with the acquisition of Reflexive Entertainment back in 2008. Then three years ago, the e-commerce giant launched their ‘App Store’ as a marketplace for mobile games and applications. They have even integrated a digital store to purchase and download games into their existing CMS. (Amazon, Industry, Tech)

Well, they definitely can't make phones. So they might as well try their hand at consoles.
