What a cock tease. An announcement about practically nothing. No details on what the box actually is, price, specs, or even a ballpark.
I don't see why you wouldn't want a PC instead of this. If it's sole purpose is a streaming box, that's fine I guess, but it's pretty obvious they want it to do more. Also creating an open platform "games console", when the hardware is flexible, the OS is flexible, at what point to we come back to just having a Windows machine, because that plays all my games.
