Thanks, but I don't know anything about Androids or what should go into a platform or anything like that. Nice to know they're listening to people (for now, though! If they get big, all this might go downhill in a few years!) at least.
That's ok. They are also taking ideas for games. I don't think they've placed a limit there. The Tegra 3 chip can certainly handle 3D graphics and sophisticated visuals.
I'm not sure it'll be quite the same kind of crash, though. I think this time around it is more of the industry committing suicide with how they are treating the consumer. The fact that an open source machine is getting so much interest speaks to that, I believe. People are looking for alternatives and there is something that gives them that (even if it isn't real just yet).

No, of course not: there isn't literally over a dozen different consoles/computer rigs to choose from nowadays unlike back then, plus not as many tons and tons of games for all of those platforms either. There's still quite a bit to choose from nowadays, but it's nothing like back then, as there wasn't only a few dominant computer choices nowadays that we have, unlike back then (Apple vs. PC vs. one of many Atari computers back then, or Commodore, or the Coco, or the TI-994a, or Sprectrums, or Apple IIs, etc., etc.), and not as much "gaming only" consoles either (especially since the Wii has taken a huge sales slump).

Yep. Electronic Arts was one of my favorite publishers back during the Sega Genesis days. I haven't been able to say that about them since the early 2000s, due to the way they treat their employees and all. And I don't even want to THINK of what Activision is like today, unlike how they started out, what with actually recognizing their programmers and what they did/how they contributed to the industry (which took Atari a lot longer to figure out). Occasionally just reading a forum post about how people say things like "the old Activision is long dead" is enough for me.
