Poll Results: Will Amazon Come Out With a Game Console This Year?

Last week we asked our readers, "Will Amazon Come Out With a Game Console This Year?" Many of you seemed not to care all that much about the topic as evidenced in the number of votes. That aside, a majority of those who did vote indicated that they thought that Amazon's set-top box capable of playing Android-based games on a big-screen TV and delivering content from the company's Amazon Prime service would not happen this year.

Around 55 percent of you said that Amazon will not release a console or set-top box in 2014. Just three percent said that the big three console makers should "watch their backs," and 42 percent of you said that, while Amazon would release a new console, it would probably not catch on.

Thanks to everyone who voted in last week's poll. For a more in-depth discussion on Amazon's possible entry into the set-top box/home console space, check out the latest episode of Super Podcast Action Committee.

Look for a new poll later this week.
