3) minimum of 1TB, but prefer 2TB
4) Better push for PS VR game development (had a PSVR but returned it after 3 days because the only game I liked was AC7 and that was it).
5) integrated IR sensor so I can use a single remote for everything
6) included verticle stand so I don't have to buy a $20 one from Best Buy
7) sold in a portable carrying case (not hard to sell it in durable, plastic case that I can stow it in for trips) instead of the cheap cardboard based packaging.

#2 isn't all that relevant. In all my gaming stuff, a SATA SSD is more than sufficient. Maybe they can make use of it, but generally speaking, it's not worth the cost. And 2k Mbps is only 2Gbps or 250MBps. A pci-e SSD will run around 2GBps, but for sequential tests. I don't know how sequential gaming is in this context, but I don't think it's a good measure.

#3, they're going to need 2TB at the absolute minimum. Games are only getting bigger, and next gen games will just amplify that.

The rest of it is irrelevant.

I still like the idea of a more modular system. Have them sell platform specific upgrades as opposed to whole new systems. Their dev costs would drop significantly and they'll still make a killing selling parts.

Which is why I still prefer a PC.
