Valve Software dropped three bombshell announcements last week with the announcement of SteamOS, the Steam Controller and the promise of living-room centered PCs called Steam Machines to be on sale in 2014. We heard about the so-called openness of these platforms, and how other manufacturers would have their own version of the same.
It now seems that Xi3 has thrown its hat into the ring. After teasing the so-called Steam Box or the Xi3 Piston at CES 2013 in March, Piston has announced that it will be revealing some more information for its upcoming iteration of the living room PC. It will be revealing some new information tomorrow, with its main page stating that “The wait is over” with a countdown timer in place.
What could Xi3 possibly have in store with its Piston Consoles and how game-changing will they be? How will they compete with Valve’s own Steam Machines? We’ll find out tomorrow. Stay tuned for more information.
