Shut up. Here is some money. You may have it. All.
It’s the long-awaited “Steam Box,” but they’re pitching it squarely as a console:
"Today marks the beginning of a new era for Xi3," said Jason A. Sullivan, founder, president and CEO of Xi3. "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."
Sadly and frustratingly, the announcement also fits the perfect profile for CES: no actual product name, no specs, no release date. The only reason I felt it worth linking is that it’s from Valve which, unlike many companies that showcase at CES, has a history of not letting us down.
