Yes, but who wants to spend $2k* on a device for a board game that will never match up with the imagination** of the player***?

* that could buy you alot of board games and expansions...

** at least ones that still have an imagination, that hasn't yet had it burned out of them by having everything spoon fed so they don't have to waste time dreaming.

*** or creator since some get a massive kick out of creating they're own custom models and not those using a small, pre-defined list of authorised tweaks. Though I suppose it will allow different players to game with each other without the need to actually go to one of the players houses, clubs etc.
