This could be very attractive to Sony, Nintendo, MS and maybe others by the time the next generation of consoles come out, around 2020-2022, as by then the tech will have settled and prices might not be too high. That's possibly wishful thinking, though.
In fact, it might provide a very clear differentiator for a new player to enter the market, such as Apple or Amazon, with a console that will have a noticable advantage over the PS4 and XBone. ie. Much better loading times.
