Amazon console could be released by Black Friday

As if there weren't enough new consoles coming out this year, Amazon is rumored to be throwing its hat into the ring as well. There are rumors swirling around (via ExtremeTech ) that the mammoth marketplace could be launching an Android-based game console by the end of the year.

Earlier this week details were revealed to Game Informer by unknown sources that Amazon plans to roll out its own Android console just in time for Black Friday. There isn't any information just yet about the internals of the potential new console, however.

If Amazon truly is stealthily primed to enter the console arena, could that mean this is also their version of a set-top box? Would you be interested in picking one up or do you think Amazon should stick to what it does best?
