VIA-Apex game console details leaked


— 11:03 PM on January 5, 2004

Apparently, VIA and Apex wil be entering the game console market with a PC-based, do-it-all living room device to be announced at CES this week. The cold, HardOCP has the the scoop on VIA's plans. Most interesting, perhaps, is the fact this box sounds relatively "open," with the ability to run standard PC games or custom-developed titles:

Obviously, you can play DVD movies, audio and video CDs, and PC games on the box. We were also told that versions of games are being developed that you do not have to "load". Simply put the CD in and play, much like is used on other consoles.
I dunno whether this thing can succeed in the commerical market, but I want one to play with myself, regardless.
