Google Developing Android-Based Game Console

First Android-based game console was funded through Kickstarter


As if Google didn't already have enough on its plate, the Web giant is reportedly looking to get into the video game hardware market with a new Ouya-like console running its Android mobile operating system, according to a new report.

The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed people "familiar with the matter," reported on Friday that Google is aiming to spread Android beyond smartphones and tablets to compete against rivals like Apple. In addition to the game console, Google is reportedly developing an Android smartwatch, as well as a second version of its Android-poweredNexus Q streaming device.
