Steam Hardware

Polygon has what details PC maker Xi3 is revealing about "Piston," a Steam-optimized mini computer that seems to be the first blow in Valve's much discussed foray into gaming hardware. This is be a powerful little PC in a cool form factor, said to be based on its "performance level" X7A PC, a version of a modular PC that failed to achieve its Kickstarter goals last year. This seems clearly aimed at the living room and Valve's "Big Picture" initiative.

$499 for the base or $999 for a more powerful version?? Seems way more expensive then either the XBox 720 or PS4. Valve doesn't play to loose, so there is something else going on here. Gabe isn't stupid, and selling one of these would be stupid. Limited usefulness as a PC (Linux is dystopian), and with a limited selection (at the moment) of Big Screen games, this would be a console looser - so I'm saying there is more here then meets the eye.
