EA pushing for open-platform gaming console.
Hey they arent entirely evil | Posted by brent on Oct 21st 07 03:19 AM
EA is pushing all of the major console developers to work on a single open-platform console that may even stream games to the console rather than have them on a disk (with a next gen internet).

"We want an open, standard platform which is much easier than having five which are not compatible"

The guess is that set-top PCs will replace consoles as they are computers, you can upgrade the components, and with the controllers like Xbox 360's you can even pretend it's a console.

The real challenge will be the split-screen gaming experience from a PC. It will definately need an X-cored CPU to handle the power and a graphics card with several cores as well. Both of which are around the corner, so who knows maybe EA is right.
