    While this is a very good deal and the specs are quite impressive, I think it would be jumping the gun to say that Microsoft and Sony are in major trouble. They've been the big dogs for a long time and with good reason. While Google might become an innovative gaming competitor, it won't completely trounce the aforementioned companies as long as they continue to keep players in mind, offer compelling exclusives, and can continue offering a kind of all-in-one home system. On top of that, many younger consumers are becoming more suspicious of such huge companies like Google (which is not to say Microsoft or Sony are small - but Google has spread into what feels like every major industry) and not everyone has the ability to stream seamlessly. Streaming takes an awful lot of internet speed, which while more common is still not available to a large chunk of people. Until good internet finds its way into rural areas, overall speeds keep increasing, and it gets cheaper, I've got a feeling that physical disks are going to keep being an important feature.
