Alienware's "PC Gaming Console"

Alienware announces the Alpha, calling this "the World’s First PC Gaming Console." This runs their proprietary "Alpha UI" to combine with the included Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to provide mouse- and keyboard-free navigation, and will be able to run Windows 8.1 or Steam Big Picture mode for a living room gaming experience, which they say quot;truly combines the ease of a console with the freedom of a PC." Here's more on what this includes, which they say ushers in "a new era in gaming":

For a limited time, fans who order the Alienware Alpha will receive their consoles packed with free bonus content including the complete versions of Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Awesomenauts, Magicka, Metro: Last Light, PAYDAY 2 and Strike Suit Zero. Alienware Alpha will also include an exclusive Gauntlet in-game item, the Magicka: Dungeons and Daemons DLC, as well as Alienware exclusive demos of Defense Grid 2 and Super Splatters. Get gaming on day one with new and exciting bundled content, along with all of the existing titles gamers already have filling up their Steam libraries.

Nice. I instead bought 3 wooden boards from a hardware store for $5, put them together with a few nails. spray painted it in black and put my wireless keyboard and mouse on them. Voila. PC "console", useable very comfortably from the couch.
