You mean the SteamOS and SteamMachines that have basically been left to wither on the vine? In the end, the SteamMachine was a platform that was trying to woo PC gamers to a console format, which is a very hard sell. I'd bet MS was watching very closely to all the points where SteamMachine failed. Personally, I'd love a console that I can throw a new "video module" into every few years. I have a Core2 Duo, w/ 16GB RAM and a GTX970 in it that will play every game I throw at it. Can I crank it all to the max? Not always, but the settings I DO play at surpass consoles every time. Point being, give it a decent CPU and enough memory and the only part that needs to be upgraded over time for *most* people is the video card.
