That sounds good in theory but it just can't be that simple.
For one, a Google-powered machine today has almost NO appeal to a hardcore gamer.
Right now Google-powered gaming is essentially Angry Birds. Browser and flash-based games. One has to wonder of the top-flight publishers will find a way to monetize blockbuster games on a Google platform - my guess is that it just won't be lucrative.
It will be interesting for sure.
