I like Google and I think they'd make a fantastic console that would have some weird and innovative way of paying for itself. Blizzard would create an awesome console too I think. It'd be great if they could create one that was geared towards MMO's. I think that'd be a really cool idea.

But back on topic, I think a google console would be great. It's be as powerful like the PS3 (their search engine is proof), and it'd be actually innovative (they invented the new way of searching the web that killed Yahoo), and it'd be simple like an apple (they have a simple little search page unlike Yahoo and MSN and such).

But I think Google could use your console when you're not and have it pay for itself that way. So you would Pay a hefty price up front, but then you could hook it up to the net and it would use your console as a distributed computing network (google certainly has a lot of traffic ot handle) to slowly pay itself off. I'm actually just totally making this up, because I have no clue as to how Google operates and if this would even be possible much less plausible.

And last Google has a large positive, but no negative. That's to say that people love or hate Sony or people love or hate Microsoft, but everyone loves Google. I don't know one person who doesn't love google (actually that's a lie, I know one completely crazy person who hates Google because they censor their Chinese search results in accordance with the government so that they can continue to operate in China). But for the vast vast vast majority of people, no one hates Google.

To be honest I dont think any other company can just enter the market and make it unless they somehow hit lightening in a bottle with something radically different. If Microsoft couldn't come in and make money then who else could? No other company could afford those kinds of losses.

Only something cheap and different could just enter now ala the Wii but it would have to actually diliver on games, unlike the Wii. Lets face it, next gen has to make X360 and PS3 look primitive so cheap it wont be.

When I think of IBM I think of innovation and quality. They certainly have the money to do it.

I wish a company would come out with a system that is upgradeable like a PC but without all the headaches. Make the innards detachable like the 360s hard drive, then just plug the newest version in.

I would kill IBM if they made one that you had to upgrade. When you start doing upgrades, you suddenly have to buy each component separately to get stats that are strong enough to play the most current games. I don't want to have to do that. You'd eventually have to upgrade the RAM and GPU for starters, and then upgrade the HDD and the Disc Drive and the fan, then you'd be upgrading the CPU and the MOBO to support all this crap you're upgrading. You'd have to spend $2000 to fully upgrade the console. It'd be just like a PC. And cost as much too.

But then worst of all, it would be out of date in 2 years.

I would have never thought Google! Thats a great idea, I've always wished a game would come out with thousands of people in a single game.
I don't think apple could do it though I think they would have a good portable gaming system but not a standalone. And finally IBM would probably have the strongest and most graphically powered console on the market, but it would'nt have any games.

Best PCs Ever. Fastest. Safer. More easy to use. Secuire. Never crashes. No viruses. Original Ideas (Not like Vista steals ideas from Linux Red Hat and MAC OSX 10 and include Zune stolen idea from iPod)

archpsyker4037d ago (Edited 4037d ago )

safer yes, faster no. Apple is running the same processors that PCs are running now. And yes OSX does crash. (Kernel Panic = Blue Screen of Death)

Besides Apple has already attempted to make a console.
