Todd and Max discuss… The Xi3 Piston

StickSkills said, "You see, I think there’s a lot of potential in this small living room PC, but I think now isn’t the time for it. I’m glad it exists, though, mainly because it’s a proof of concept. In the future, these small form-factor PCs are going to take over. But now isn’t the time. I think a streaming option, similar to an AppleTV, that takes your Steam games and puts them on your HDTV is a better, more cost effective option. Plus, it’d allow Valve to take some market share away from Apple." (Tech, Xi3)

Im a fan of pc
With the cheap games, mod support, upgradeable hardware they just seem so limitless but yall can have that keyboard and Mouse setup.
A controller in your hand is what gaming is about.
Im anxious to see valve do this a console that can do everything a pc can do

The prototype has not even been revealed yet remember http://m.ign.com/articles/2...

"A controller in your hand is what gaming is about."

Console gaming. PC gaming is something different.

I'm not an avid pc gamer, but given the entry price of the piston I would rather just build my own rig which I'm planning to do. Also why game on pc with controller? To me it takes away from what you get from mouse/keyboard gameplay the way PC games were meant to be played.
