Apple and the Mac Mini console revisited

It seems that my post on the Mac mini as a game plataform attracted a lot of interest from Apple fans and video game fans. Most of them, however, said that the idea of the Mac mini as a game machine is hard to believe. While I am not claiming to be true about this (only Jobs knows what is going on in Apple), I believe this would be a strong selling point for the Mac mini.

The guys at cathodetan put together a nice argumentation for the Mac console. It goes like this:

1. I spent all this money and it won't even play games
2. Living rooms are multi-function areas
3. OS X attracts a younger demographic

Thus, not having games is just a disadvantage for Apple, which they need to address in their products. Hence, it is very reasonable that Apple looks for this new area, not as a main feature, but as a value added proposition.
