some ideas for my console:

- The controller should double as a TV remote with the following functions: Power on/off TV, switch between gaming and TV, and volume controls. (how modern consoles don't have this is beyond me)
- When you power on the console, it automatically changes the TV to that video signal. (and turns on the TV if it wasn't on yet) When you turn off the console, it changes back to TV.
- compatible with all PC gamepads
- remappable controls in the OS. It would be tied to that specific game and user, so wouldn't have to keep remapping the controls back to normal when you switch game.
- the system should ruin quietly
- (new idea I only just thought of) the game console can be played on a PC by connecting the game console to the PC (such as USB or such) and played on the PC monitor. Or hell, maybe make the game console an external add-on for the PC. So it would be sort of like gaming on PC but it doesn't matter what your specs are, since all the specs are inside the box. :D

other ideas but kind of random: Optional battery so the system can run without a power supply. (The idea was so you can easily take it to friend's houses.) The system should ideally be lightweight, portable, and not run hot. A cart-based or download-only system might be desirable, like Vita TV.

edit: Or make a WiiU, but without a power brick. Just one cable from the wall to the system like a PS3 slim. Also you should be able to charge the gamepad by simply putting the gamepad on top of the console. That would be awesome.

None of my ideas are remotely like a PC, except the gamepad support and remappable controls.

If the external box can't play PC games then its not a PC. but if it can play PC games then it could still potentially bring droves of people into PC gaming because they'd no longer need a high spec PC no would they have to take their PC apart. Its basically an external upgrade. Which when I put it that way has probably been thought of before but there are probably some strings attached. I'm talking about all the components packed into a box. The pc is only used for its monitor and internet connection. I guess its like onlive in a way, but instead of a server, its a box.
