Is Amazon entering the video game console market with a low-cost Android console this Holiday season?
New rumor says that Amazon is getting into the video game console market. Game Informer reports that a source told them that Amazon will release a low-cost Android video game console by Black Friday 2013.
The new Amazon gaming console would be part of the Kindle Fire platform and use the Amazon app store. This rumor sounds reasonable, but so does the Amazon smartphone rumor that still did not turn out to be true.
I consider though an Amazon gaming console more likely than a Amazon smartphone.
If the rumor is true than Amazon will compete against the new console launches of Sony and Microsoft this Holiday season.
