It isn't just the dated hardware of Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii (U)...
Android is popular, ever growing, and an open platform to boot. Anyone can develop games for it without having to beg for an expensive DevKit and the like.
And Android hardware is so small/cheap that things like the 79 Dollar GameStick and the 99 Dollar Ouya become possible!
For a lot of casual gamers, that's a deal to good to ignore. You can buy a lot of Android games for the money you save on the console.
My Spider-sense tells me that MS, Sony and Nintendo are in potentially BIG F%&%ING TROUBLE.
They may have to rethink their "Closed Ecosystem" and "Walled Garden" type approaches to gaming.
I also wouldn't be surprised if Xbox 720, PS4 and Wii U suddenly get an "Android Emulation"
upgrade, so as not to loose the Android market completely to cheaper consoles...
