    It looks like the gaming console market (especially in the Android space) will soon get a bit crowded. According to the latest "rumint," Amazon is already working on an Android gaming console that it plans to launch later on in 2013. Here's a quote with some of the details,

    As you can see from the intel, the device isn't really designed to take on the Xbox One and PS4 juggernauts, but is more likely aimed at the OUYA. Despite the fact that the OUYA hasn't been selling that well, it is still a potentially lucrative market. If Amazon can design and market something that is inexpensive like the OUYA, it may help further legitimize the Android gaming market. Perhaps we are seeing the emergence of a new gaming console platform that will one day rival the big boys of Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft. Share your perspective.

    One of these days I just need to turn an old laptop into a media center. That's all I really need (horribly disappointed with PS3 features in that regard).
