One of the (many) things Google announced during its opening keynote yesterday at its I/O developer event was Android TV, which is somewhat of an evolution of Google TV. This time around, however, there will be a much bigger focus on gaming, so it's no surprise that Razer already has something up its sleeve. That something is a micro console that Razer plans to release in the fall.
Razer's micro console will be built around Android TV and be able to stream movies, music, and other apps for large-screen entertainment. However, the emphasis will be on gaming. While details are super light at the moment, Razer says its experience in building high-performance gaming systems, peripherals, and software will benefit the micro console's development.
"This is a console of the future," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. "Built on Google’s incredible Android TV platform, the Razer micro-console incorporates not only hardcore and casual gaming, but music, movies and other entertainment and social applications, all on an affordable system."
Razer didn't say how much it intends to charge for its upcoming micro console.
