Google is not just a search engine its on a quest to take over the technology world and gaming hardware could be its next move
Sony is expanding its online-music business by forging a partnership with Google Inc.
Dude, you don't have to bring Sony into everything.. you know
So Google is everything now?
And that has what to do with this article??
NOOOOOOO! Keep google far away from gaming. Just look at Youtube!
Yeah... 1080p video and live music recordings. Really bad this YouTube thing is. /sarcasm
Think of it this way. Almost EVERY video around the net has been uploaded to YouTube. The CIA has gone on record that they monitor YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. This may seem harmless but it can be a very bad thing. What's to stop the media or the government from censoring what they don't want us to know? I've seen it firsthand. A building blew up during the Fukushima incident. Videos were uploaded on YouTube and then immediately taken down. Again and again they were censored and then ultimately the censorship ended and the media finally released information about it when there were just too many videos of it floating around. That's just an example of how YouTube can be bad. We don't need the same kind of control, censorship, or privacy issues that Google's other services have on a gaming console.
@ GearsOfWar Thats acually a good thing. Youtube made the info come out it wouldnt have been seen otherwise. Governments monitoring youtube doesnt mean that youtube is bad it means the govts are. The more avenues to release information to people the better. Would you rather there be no wiki, youtube, twitter, facebook, and the like? We could go back to printed newspapers and local news broadcasts thats much harder to sensor/s
Well that's true too but I think that multiple sources would benefit us more. Monopolies are never a good thing, and YouTube is becoming one fast. Similar sites are there and offer the same thing but don't have near the traffic YouTube generates so there's no desire to go elsewhere. Then there's that little trap of a right bar of related videos that seems to entangle us even more. I'd feel much better knowing that there would be alternatives that would get just as much exposure as one site. When one guy holds all the cards, he's the only one winning.
Yeah, it probably would be a casual machine, but they might make it an open platform meaning anyone could publish games to it, a lot like Android. It would have lots of games and be a very attractive target for indie developers who just want to make a game, and want to avoid the hassles of publishing on Live or PSN.
Wasn't there a rumor with Google Chrome coming to the PS3? If anything thats what they should do
Lol did anybody read all of it, "microsoft is king of the hill" lmao
Sony should buy Google! Lol.
That would be pretty sweet
you do know google has a market value that is over 10x Sony's right? Google is a $200 billion corporation while sony is a $18 billion corporation. But I do like that Sony is partnering up with Google on many accounts and really wish Google would partner up with Sony to go up against xbox live.
Thats the craziest thing Ive heard in a long time. Google can buy Sony but Sony could never buy Google.
I was actually joking.
google search engine is the best thing about the internet but google console !! spy console or serious hd gaming console ?
That would be cool, they already have a awesome OS and games...google tv is kinda the beginning.
Yeah if they were to implement Android onto the console it would give gamers a mass variety of casual games and apps. But while still implementing hardcore games into the console.
Super Google Brothers Lol anyways, whatever happens, I just hope it's a console that has actual hardcore games, rather than shovel ware.
This should be an opinion piece. You can't just state your opinion as fact.
I myself would perfer for this not to happen, but if such a concept is delveloping . It is time the big 3 eat the proverbial bullet & put thier difference aside so as to work together to prevent this from evenning becoming a reality.
