    Consoles work as well as they do because of a common platform; unless all TVs standardised on one or two platforms, it wouldn't be terribly efficient.

    What if they used all types of different hardware with a standardised software that supports them all?

    LG and Philips have set up the Smart TV Alliance to do just that and for me that works better than 2 or 3 different pieces of hardware all using different software.

    For you maybe, but not for developers/programmers. Different platforms means more cost/time/effort in the development stage if they hope to optimise for the platform, and if they're hoping for decent quality games it could be a problem.
