I think thats the point. I've always felt that a PC Console would make sense. Imagine if you have joe shmoe that needs no intervention to play his games? No drivers, no setup, and he is guarenteed to be able to play a game that he buys, because his system guarentees the minimum requirement, even if he doesn't know what that means.

I don't know how well it would go over, but its a good idea.
