@Logicfest -- Some console manufacturers have realized the potential for mobile games and have harnessed it. You can get a console that doesn't cost much, utilizes that big television screen and has controllers that feel great.
Oh, and a lot of those run mobile games. That's kind of the missing link between what consoles offer and what mobile platforms offer, huh? Of course, those will not replace consoles. They are just gaming consoles that are made in line with a somewhat unconventional philosophy.
