Well, to be honest I think while it is a nice idea in concept I also
think it is way too limiting. The reason is that I've been exposed to
the current gen consoles like the XBox, Play Station, etc and if I
were going to support any game console it would be something like
that. This idea you are proposing sounds a lot like going back to the
Atari/Original NES days and that isn't something I'd really have any
interest inpersonally. I'm looking forward to more accessible
first-person games, withrealistic sounds, music, and basically any
games on par with the mainstream games of today. Not necessarily going
back and playing arcade games like Pacman, Asteroids, Space Invaders,
I think the only way we might have a chance at a real console is to
retrofit one of the existing consoles, IE install our own operating
system on it, and then build games using that platforms APIs. For
example, take a PS2, remove the host operating system, install Linux
on it, and then use SDL, OPenAL, whatever to build high-performence
titles in C/C++. That's a more realistic approach in my opinion.
