It would be nice if the gaming industry(or nvidia since they are not invited to the next gen party) came together with the open source community and develop a linux or bsd (single, just one that's it not hundreds) console distro, turning any pc into a console system with a xbox 360 or ps3 type UI to make things simple and friendly, no full linux OS desktop. Fuck directx. ps4 will be using a modified opengl anyway.
It's ridiculous that you still have to purchase a console dev kit(stiff requirements) these days especially when the hardware is not unique but off the shelf pc parts.
With the 24 hour activation requirement for the xbox one, I doubt it will sell well. Not sure about the ps4, they might also take this route.
