Post reads: "The Big O is a PC loaded with an Xbox 360 to eliminate the consumer from having to choose between either a PC and an Xbox 360. It combines them both to give you the ultimate gaming machine."
nice way to market that thing using halo..
Thats a big Ohhh you got here!
So thats for the three or four games worth playing on the xbox that aren't on the pc? I'd rather have a pc with a playsation in it. You know for all the exclusives.
And the entry level configuration of this thing is over $7,600.00 USD! Now, the components are impressive - liquid cooled everything including the 360, overclocked i7 930, 12X Blu-ray burner, SLI Nvidia GTX 480, and plenty of other bells and whistles - but SWEET HOLY MOTHER! $7669.00? How many people are out there with that kind of money and willing to part with it for games? Oh well, it's still cool.
8.000 bucks and can't play Uncharted. Go figure.
It makes you wonder for people who want to play Halo, why not just spend the $200-$300 on a 360 and skip the $7300 PC. O_O
As much as this monstrosity cost it should be able to upgrade the xbox 360 games that aren't available on the pc to PC level graphics!!!
how much does it cost? article doesnt say
http://www.gamespot.com/new... Fucking the price of a car!!!
higher res smaller screen
OH LOARD!! thanks for the info
The anime series was great check it out.
Wow, somebody actually got it. Kudos.
That's the first thing I thought of, the anime.
So sad, its the first thing I thought of too. haha
Sounds cool, I will not be getting one. Xbox fans can rejoice about not having to worry about RROD or RDOD!
Or buying a ps3, lol.
The perfect 360 emulator lol.
In my opinion, this thing is a waste of money. You would spend far less and be just as happy - if not more- by owning a gaming PC and an Xbox separately. My god this thing costs like $7,000 for the base model and $14,000 with all the 'upgrades'. This is absurd. Go and build your own for about $1000.00 (including the price of an Xbox)
I think most of that is spent on the cooling system, and having everything organized in it properly. You just stick them together half assed like and the xbox would burn out. Well if you had the pc on at the same time.
gaming PC- $900 Xbox 360 slim - $300 You spend $1200. Why spend $5800 more for the same thing? and that $14000...who in the hell would buy that? i mean...you can get a REALLY amazing motorcycle with that price. Hell even a nice used sports car.
That is fair point but that 900 pc is nowhere near as powerful as this thing. Did you guys read the specs? You won't need a new computer for like 10 years!!!
This is obviously targeted at an extremely Niche market. But extremely, I'm talkin' about the one guy who's probably going to be labeled as the only guy who bought one. Yeah, THAT guy.
$7 big ones i could buy 3 ps3's (like the guy on youtube) 3 xbox 360 3 wii's 3 decent gaming pc's and 3 big macs.
and 3 apples!
Don't forget the annoying orange. "Hey apples"
unless it uses the PC Power to make those sub hd games with zero anti aliasing look good....PASS!!! I have a 360 i bought for reach...after i am bored with reach in a month or two it is going back for a full refund!!!! This thing is like taping a ps1 to a ps3....it is insulting to the PC!!
xbox has more anti aliasing than ps3 and games like reach are HD go play killzone ps3 noob
They're not true hd because the 360 wasnt originally made with that in mind
Uncharted 2 nuff said !
when he says " Tape a PS1 to A PS3 hes refering to the diff in tech level not that he loves PS3 or some shit... god PS3 and Xbox will never be able to compete with PC why would u think we would want them... lmao epic fail Troll Xbot...
"BIG" WASTE "O" MONEY
ooh, want one, sounds expensive though.
I got a 360, PS3 and a PC sharing a large LCD monitor all within arms reach. I just change video mode on the monitor to which one I want to use. No need for something like this at all.

I always wondered why the xbox couldnt play pc games....legit question, is it an issue with ram or the processor of the xbox that prohibits this from happening or is it simply another platform to collect revenue from? Backwards compatiblity like a mofo, that would have opened up their library by a shit ton. im sure that there are some games that wouldnt be ideal to play on a console but it would have been a big selling point for a lot of people who use pcs for gaming with a large collection of pc games.
Problem with this is that I already have a powerful pc that I don't have to pay to play non-mmo games on
Zero as in Zero Sales. 0
I'd be more interested if it had a built in Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
Its an interesting concept to centralise it all, but that price is CRAIZehhhhh!!
'entry model costs just $7,669. ' Fuck off.
for that price you could build a better or close pc and buy a 360, ps3, and a wii. Im not really sure how much a comparable PC would cost, but it wouldnt be anywhere close to 7000$. A 360 costs 200 or 300$.
Yeah, that or buy a Car. Or pay 3-4 months worth of mortgage. Or live in a $600 apartment for an entire year. Yeah... that...
