+ - An Open Game Console Standard Proposed

Submitted by
Derick Eisenhardt
Derick Eisenhardt writes "Today I am proposing for game developers and hardware manufacturers to come together to work on an open standard for game consoles. The Open Game Console Consortium will be working together to define a standard and certification program so that multiple manufacturers can release their own consoles that all play the same exact games.

One of the primary goals of our project is to give game developers a console platform where they will have the freedom to create games on their own terms. The Big Three's oligopoly over the videogame industry and subsequent splintering of the market isn't helping our industry any more than the needless battle between BluRay and HD-DVD is helping the movie industry. Please come join us as we venture into a new era of console gaming."
