    They could just release a beefed up Apple TV.

    I welcome the idea of another company getting in on the action nothing bad can come from it and it just means more competition.

    Samsung make pretty cool hardware, wouldn't be surprising if they, or any electronic company, said "**** it" and took the gamble and joined in next generation. Would be very interesting only draw back is that it would be a fifth breed of Fanboy to deal with

    Yeah I would like to see Samsung get in the mix for sure. They make quality products. I could definitely get behind that. Them or the giant elephant in the room, Google.

    Oh snap. If anyone has the money right now google could do it.

    I think the idea of a new contender is very exciting. Just wish someone took the risk

    Reminds me of that line on Fight Club. Where he talks about the universe well be named after major corporations. Like the Microsoft Stellarsphere and Starbucks Galaxy. Lol.

    Honestly it blows my mind that either them or Apple haven't entered the business. Both have tons of money too do so and the image and name to be successful. I could see Google more so than Apple. Simply because it seems more on their nature. I would love to see it. Like you said, it would be exciting and would likely push innovation that much further.

    Man I'm getting giddy just thinking about the possibilities.

    But neither are they in gaming consoles. We'll still have Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony.

    I wouldn't but my wife and daughter love their iphones, ipods, and ipads..

    I think they are nice but expensive, the real reason I don't like them is they have no USB for mem cards.

    Me neither. The mrs has all apple stuff, but I am laughing hard when itunes ****s up her playlist, or she has to start deleting apps etc cos internal storage is full...plus, it won't work as a streaming media server to my ps3/ps4. And lastly, the 5s looks so ****in old next to my s4/nexus5/nexus 7.

    What if apple enters the console market....?

    Here's my thought on it:

    If they do enter the console gaming market, then that just means there will be an EXTREMELY overpriced, already well-established technology that Apple comes out advertising as something it came up with, and they'll slap a bunch of patents on such, then try to litigate instead of innovate.

    Some may not remember the Samsung v Apple lawsuits, where Apple tried to sue Samsung for everything under the sun..but I do. Instead of coming up with fresh new ideas, they want to drag companies into court. If someone threatens your breadbasket, don't sue them, come up with something even better. Why try to squash innovation that the consumer benefits from...come up with fresh ideas that people are wanting and they'll buy your product....instead of trying to put a gag order on innovation and stopping people who want to be visionaries. And after Apple proclaims how great their wonderful deceased leader was, and how much of a visionary he was...we all know how apple got their start, and what he did in his garage with that computer.
    But that was back in the IBM days..back when social media wouldn't explode and cream their pants because you blatantly ripped off someone's idea and patented it, then created your company around it.
    That would never fly this day and time...but it did back then.

    So, if they entered the console gaming arena...we would all see a flurry of lawsuits from Apple against Sony/MS claiming that Apple created a PS1 back in 1983...but they just didn't want to use the idea and now Sony should pay them and stop making consoles all together.

    That's just my opinion....Im sure there's some hardcore apple fanboys who will come in and give me all the reasons why Steve Jobs deserved his fame because he did it in a garage and proved that even the "little man" can steal **** that ain't yours and run with it...
    But we all know the story...the REAL story.

    Apple will innovate when Samsung or rival competitors come up with some technology and they can find a patent loophole to crawl through. I used to be halfway in the Apple fanbase myself, until I started seeing what they wanted to do in the smartphone market -- creating patent trolls just so they would have thousands of patents sitting...and once someone uses something they've got a patent on, they drag the company into the courts an litigate for 2-3 years...thus squishing the end product that us, the consumers, get our hands on. The smartphone world should be filled with new and exciting features...not have companies as large as Samsung and LG..even Sony...that fear using a creative mind because they might infringe on something.

    We're lucky that Apple's patent on "touching an icon on the screen to launch applications" was thrown out...or who knows what we would have to do with smartphones that aren't Apple in order to launch an application.
    Among other stupid patents that never should've been issued...part of the blame lies in our corrupt patent system...it's a crying shame that it's abused the way it is.
