Scientific-Atlanta chief executive James McDonald has suggested that the company is planning to develop television set-top boxes with high-performance video game capabilities. According to him developers are already building games for the company’s Explorer series of set-top boxes, although no timetable was given for when such a device might be available. Referring to competition from the likes of Sony and Nintendo McDonald has commented that, "I can give [game players] the same performance you get out of those game boxes. There is no question that games is one ... market we will be in." Speaking at the Morgan Stanley Semiconductor & Systems conference McDonald also claimed that, “We have a partner we are working with who has 250 engineers in Europe writing software for the Explorer platform for games.” Unfortunately the developer in question was not named and company representatives have not commented further on these remarks.
