    Google would probably create a game console before Apple would.

    apple would fall from grace doing so...they're getting comfortable with pricing as if they're a monopoly now.

    their video games would be over priced and hard to crack or hack...making them undesirable and creating a domino

    effect with their other products.

    The people that are saying they did it 10 years ago and failed: that was before they became a big a success are they are now. It would be interesting to seewhat they would come up with to compete with Sony and Microsoft. I don't care for Nintendo.

    As posted, they tried it before they got Steve Jobs.
    Apple would be nothing without him, the ultimate hype man.

    IF they did try again and succeed, imagine a console war between M$ and Apple fanboys tho? [​IMG]

    This is stupid. Iono about whether or not they would be over-priced, but since when would making video games hard to crack and hack "undesirable"?

    None of the ones my friends owned crashed and burned. Ever. The 360 is one of the biggest disappointments ever in terms of reliability, imo.

    Apple would be smart to get into the gaming business a year or so before Microsoft and Sony come out with their next consoles to try to get a comfortable leadin sales and development. If they do everything right, they have a chance to compete. Especially with all these hype machines walking around praising Applelike the company was founded by Jesus and run by Obama.
