Submission + - Is Amazon Making A Sub-$300 Console To Play Mobile Games? (itworld.com)

itwbennett writes: Yesterday, VG24/7 posted a story (and several news outlets followed suit) suggesting that Amazon was planning to launch a sub-$300 Android game console. A $300 box to play mobile games on your TV? ITworld's Peter Smith doesn't buy it. 'If Amazon is working on some kind of set-top box, it's going to be about streaming,' says Smith. 'Music, video, and games. Remember back in November when Amazon announced G2, a new AWS instance type designed for streaming GPU intensive tasks like games? Combine Amazon's G2 cloud servers and an Amazon set top box for console-like game streaming, plus supporting Android and/or iOS games (possibly the latter would also be streamed), and of course support for Amazon Video and MP3, and we're getting closer to something that may be worth $300.'
