personally i just want a videogame player whose sole purpose is to play games. i don't need facebook, i don't need netflix, i don't need 3D and blu-ray players, i already have most of that with other devices.

the industry needs a return to simplicity: games, games, games and nothing else. stop trying to be low-end pcs and media centers. jack of all trades, master of none.
