You don't necessarily need a big $500 box the size of an old VCR to play games on your TV. Instead, we've seen several attempts at the idea of a microconsole, a smaller, lower-cost device that doesn't try and include the kitchen sink. Ouya is an Android-based console that sells for as little as $50. Nvidia Shield plays Android games, and can also stream PC games, plus it includes it's own portable display. No one has quite nailed this form yet, but the potential is there, especially as we move toward a download-only future for gaming.
