They released the details on the first prototypes.

man they are beefy!

Some have a 3 GB Titan, and 16 gigs of ram!

On the crappy side they are also shiping some units with only 8 gigs of SSD space?
So on day 1 games like GTA 4, Dirt 3, and Storm Rising, will not even fit on some of the SSD.

Well, they matched the specs of my current computer pretty good.

If they can keep the units under $600 I think they might have a fighting chance against PC's and future consoles.

Lets hope it does not end up like Neo-Geo, where the hardware was AWESOME, but the units cost 20x as much as any console. They where wonderful systems, but only sold a few units.

For a PC to meet those specs would cost around $2000 custom built (+ $100-300 for the microsoft tax). I hope that mass production will keep the prices low.

Sounds like the Steam controller will have motion sensing now.Thndr2013-11-05 23:51:01
