Break it down for me then. Also, don't forget to add $30 for the controller, and another $20 per box for advertising.

I could see a Android based Google box doing well, not so much for DX11 FPS type games, but that would come slowly. maybe a mix of Android and Chrome OS. Google has the $$$ to pull some thing off... hell it could even be a phone dock that uses your 4g and quad core power.

I know this is a little off topic but interesting none the less. people would buy games through Play... Including indi titles. Devs make money, Google makes money... Win Win!

That's a great example.

I have a similar low power rig and even BF3 on all low settings is better than my PS3 version.
