Amazon prepping its own video game console?

X-bit Labs picked up a rumor that Amazon is working on an Android-based video game console. The device is reportedly powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon and may be launched later this year.
While Amazon’s video game system is expected to be based on Google Android platform, it will feature a number of proprietary features, just like Amazon Kindle Fire tablets do. Amazon’s console is projected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chip, which should provide sufficient performance for video games originally designed for Apple iOS and Google Android platforms as well as exclusive titles developed specifically for Amazon’s console. Like other game consoles, it should be future-proof, so it is logical to expect support for ultra-high-definition video, high graphics processing performance and rich multimedia capabilities.

At present, Amazon is trying to lure game developers to its console, reports VG247 web-site. The retailer is demonstrating the unit to game developers and publishers in a bid to encourage them to create exclusive titles for it. The prototype console, which is demonstrated to software makers, is an oblong device with sharp edges about the size of the PSone system. The final product will almost certainly feature a different design.
