I don't have an answer for you here, sorry man. I'd like to touch on this though because it's interesting to me.
There's been a lot of talk the past few years about how consoles are being phased out by mobile gaming. I just don't see it. Sure, more people, medium for medium, probably own a cell phone game over a PS3 game, but to me, that only speaks to the convenience of everyone owning cell phones these days. I guess they're at least sort of starting to get caught up, with ports of GTA games and stuff like LIMBO being brought over. At the end of the day though, I see stuff like the OUYA or whatever belonging to a small market of kids who don't understand what they're buying, and only see the "$100 FOR access to OVER 100,000 GAMES - a portion of them FOR FREE!" or for the people who like playing iOs games so much they'd wanna do it on a TV (not a lot I assume).
The idea of playing a game on a phone is cool because you carry it everywhere, and people end up bored through out the day a lot, so it's neat to have something there. But, if you want a true gaming experience, I find that you can really only get that with a console or PC (I don't play PC games so I'm clueless there).
It'll be interesting to see what this rumored Google console is - whether it's a true mainstream console, or something like the OYUA or Steambox. Frankly I'd like to see more competition in the console market. I'd give anything to see what Sega would be doing right now, or Atari or whatever.
