Seems there is rumors going around that Valve is bring out a PC-Based Gaming Console.
The Verge speculates that Valve’s console would feature upgradable hardware that used biometrics in some way along with a proprietary controller that let you swap out components depending on game type. Valve filed a patent for just such a controller last year./discuss.The basic specs of this Steam Box were a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GPU, the report said.
Few random articles.
I remember arguing with a friend over PC vs. Consoles, and then he asked "What if a PC was a console?" and I was at a loss for words for at least 15 seconds.
As long as they don't end up tweaking things to a point where they make "console"-specific games.
The John Smith who will shake the world.
i hope it actually goes through and doesn't fizzle out.
Change Alternate Avatar in game (Only once!) or set a "default" skin to be used (be it current "default" or an alternate avatar!)
Sounds pretty awesome, me want.

I think I'd rather my PC.
Seems like it's meant to be a console with Pc specs, but what'st the point if you're still using a crappy console controller. Kb/M ftw and if it doesn't have upgradeable hardwhere it's going to be pretty annoying. Though I heard it might.
Am I the only person that doesnt have trouble aiming with thumbsticks?
And typically consoles are the most powerful computers around when they are released, especially for the price. The 360 was a tricore way back in 2006 or whatnot. Dual Cores were just getting popular back then
what computer that you could build in 2005 had a tricore processor for 400 dollars?
people were still buying single core pentium 4's at this time.
the PS3 had a blu-ray player for 500 bucks when a blu-ray player at the time was over 1 grand.
I'd rather spend the money on upgrading my existing PC, rather than some sort of mini-pc that can only run steam.
