  1. Lol Google no one wants to stream games. Not till you get google fiber out everywhere and start offering cheaper plans instead of just 1gb or 5mbs. Work on finishing that then start talking about streaming games. If the console cant run games via blu ray or downloaded then itll flop for sure no question. Theyd have to burst into the e3 scene and all that to build hype around it too. But like I said before unless you have a stable fast internet connection thatll never make the games lag itll flop. Most Americans dont have good internet as is. And most don't want to stream their games. So itll be a niche market.

  2. Interesting. If they make all games downloadable, all you'll need is additional hard drives as attachments instead of buying the physical games. Probably have all your games backed up on the cloud.

  3. The big 3(Microsoft,Sony and Nintendo) have made it virtually impossible for a new console to exist now. Google would need to do something truly innovative and have full support from the top devs/publishers. Remember the Sega dreamcast
