With steam and big picture, HDMi, ITX cases and smaller PC hardware (plus the irony is win 8 makes a good htpc front end) and wireless controllers its getting much less absurd to build your own console
if valve released specs for the steam box a month after the prices settle as a pure gaming machine without endless app's then a lot of people who play on pc now would show a lot of their console friends a different path..
thats if its any good of course. but if their o/s is installable then theoretically you could build one faster than a PS4, Xbone and possibly cheaper
