The First Unofficial 'Steam Box' Will Launch This Holiday SeasonStarting At $1K

Xi3 Corporation's "Piston", an unofficial version of Valve's Steambox, will be launching this holiday season for $1000. That's not a typo. This all in one entertainment device made to stream PC play will retail for a cool grand.

"Xi3's Piston—the first unofficial Steam Box console—will launch this holiday at a starting price of $1,000, the hardware manufacturer announced today.
If you preorder it before March 18, you'll get a $100 discount.
The Piston is the first PC designed specifically to play games in your living room using Steam's Big Picture mode. Valve is helping finance the machine, although the Steam makers are developing their own Steam Box that will also be released this year, according to Valve boss Gabe Newell."
The price tag is steep but these powerful little machines have a following and a choice selection of investors. Will you be picking one up?
