Xi3 Corporation announced at the 2013 International CES trade show that they are developing a gaming PC system designed for televisions. The “uniquely shaped, grapefruit-size” Xi3 Modular Computer chassis is being designed with Steam and its Big Picture in mind, and is being developed with an investment from the Valve Corporation.
"Today marks the beginning of a new era for Xi3," said Jason A. Sullivan , founder, President and CEO of Xi3. "This new development stage product will allow users to take full-advantage of their large high-definition TV displays for an amazing computer game experience. As a result, this new system could provide access to thousands of gaming titles through an integrated system that exceeds the capabilities of leading game consoles, but can fit in the palm of your hand."
