This modular PC system is developed by Xi3 Corporation and funded by Valve. It was being show off at the CES trade show in Las Vegas.
The set-top box will allow users to access thousands of gaming titles through an integrated system, a statement said.
“Today marks the beginning of a new era for Xi3,” said Jason Sullivan, founder and chief executive of Xi3, in a statement.
“This new development stage product will allow users to take full-advantage of their large high-definition TV displays for an amazing computer game experience,” he added.
“As a result, this new system could provide access to thousands of gaming titles through an integrated system that exceeds the capabilities of leading game consoles, but can fit in the palm of your hand.”
Currently though no news of the internal hardware has been given even though currently showing this off. Other system supplied by Xi3 are based around dual core Intel CPU’s and SSD.
I’m a big fan of Valve type software as it removes the need for physical media. but I am a bit unsure about a console myself as I like using keyboard and mouse. What do you think?
