    iGame?

    It wouldn't sell. Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo destroy that market. Sony for it's blue ray support, Microsoft for it's Live, and Nintendo for it's simulation like gaming.

    What would Apple bring the the table on it? What type of disk's would it run on? Blu-Ray? Nope, already done. DVD? Done.

    What can it bring? Nothing. Include what, iPod Support? Already done. AppleTV support? Microsoft Live already has HD TV shows and Movies on it. Internet Browser? Sony AND Wii have that. Simulation? Wii.

    What will it bring?

    the only thing none of them have: 3rd Party Games which can be coded from your home computer.

    Say they make a console and then have the AppStore built in, then you can use a new SDK to make games for it.

    all apple would bring would be their nice touch hand gestures. ex. pinch in and out to make game bigger/ smaller. 3 fingers to go to next menu. the only cool part would be that ti would be like 8 mm thin. i call it eh igame nano

    Apple made the Pippin but that was very unpopular.

    Only ~42,000 units sold in 2 years. I don't see Apple making a gaming console very soon.
