Could a games console ever be an essential household item?


"Could a games console ever be an essential household item? It's a simple enough question, and one you've probably already answered in your head with a big fat no. But don't be so hasty. It could happen, it just needs the different factions of the games industry to work together to create something beautiful instead of bitching at and competing with each other.

It's highly likely, unless you're a tramp or vagrant, that you have all of the following items in your house: an oven, a fridge, a telephone, a television, and a vacuum cleaner. I'd guess you also have a computer or you're otherwise reading this article using the power of your mind and nothing else. Clever you."

mmm let me check mmm.... yup it was a PS3 fanboy... anyway in my opinion we need to understand the meaning of essential 1st before we post a Yes on this.


1. absolutely necessary; indispensable: Discipline is essential in an army.

1. fundamental, basic, inherent, intrinsic, vital. See necessary. 2. Essential, inherent, intrinsic refer to that which is in the natural composition of a thing. Essential suggests that which is in the very essence or constitution of a thing: Oxygen and hydrogen are essential in water. Inherent means inborn or fixed from the beginning as a permanent quality or constituent of a thing: properties inherent in iron. Intrinsic implies belonging to the nature of a thing itself, and comprised within it, without regard to external considerations or accidentally added properties: the intrinsic value of diamonds.

Well Love its essential in a Family, Relation or Friendship to really function but that its dying this days and if a STUPID game console end up been an essential household item in your house you better be worried.
