"Piston is smaller, lighter, and will last longer, provide more gaming options and be more powerful than any other gaming console on the planet," Sullivan added. "The reason I feel confident in saying this is because we started with a clean slate, unlike competing manufacturers. And that Tabula Rasa approach is what sets Piston apart from other gaming systems today and what will set us apart tomorrow."
On debut, the Piston will feature a $999 price tag. Though Sullivan didn't explain the console's hardware specs, he does note that Xi3 has unexpectedly increased the system's memory. Alongside the previously revealed 128GB solid state hard drive, the Piston will also feature an additional solid state hard drive slot, as well as an internal MicroSD card slot. These additions allow the Piston to utilize up to 1TB of storage.
Prospective Piston owners who pre-ordered the console at or before this year's SXSW will receive their machines early. According to Sullivan, these Pistons should be reaching their owners "on or before November 15, 2013."
So, no exact specs. Although, there does seem to be inclusion a SSD, and room for a 1TB HDD. Price is $1,000. Just about as the price of an OG PS3 and PS4 combined. Athough certainly cheaper than a $1,500 PC. And still certainly cheaper than the $2,000 gaming PC my friend is still building.
Anyway, do you think the $1,000 price point is from a lower tier, or middle or even high tier? SSD
and that nifty robot controller might just make this a worthy purchase for some, rather than a downright tower PC. Thoughts?
