A Gaming PC meant for the TV

We grew up bleary eyed in front of the TV playing console games and today's consoles just have not matured the way we have. A cross between the power and customization of PC gaming with the simplicity of a console struck us as something that everyone might want. So we rigged up a prototype and have been enjoying it as an HTPC and gaming PC. Initially, Windows will be installed on the machine until SteamOS is possible and has enough of a game library. At that point, we can then drop the price since Windows will not have to be paid for.

Hardware

We'll have two versions of the Brood Cube: one base model and one with extras. Both are phenomenal at 1080p gaming with a Nvidia GTX 650 Ti BOOST. The extras include double the CPU cores, double the memory, and Wifi and Bluetooth are included. The base model suffices for those that just want to game and have a wired connection near their TV. The model with extras has the extra grunt and flexibility for those that need it.

Price

Initially we'll launch with a $700 and $800 price for the two models described above, both with Windows. Once the Steam OS is ready for use and sales have picked up, we can drop the price as the cost of the product drops. We want to lower the price as much as possible to make living room PC gaming available to the masses but need support to get there.

Big Picture Gaming

Games on a big 1080p screen with a full sound system are the way they're meant to be enjoyed. The Brood Cube gives you a gaming PC optimized for 1080p but also can function as a full fledged Windows computer. It's a gaming console without the limitations of a gaming console. It's a PC without the cost of spending $1000 to game.

Low Cost

Other gaming companies have high costs from offering too many options and they even force you to spend more than you need to. We offer you one option that works. No guess work.  It's just the power you need to game on your big screen and without having to pay a lot to get it.

Small Form Factor

The Brood Cube is not technically a cube but it's boxy dimensions make it close to 9 inches on each side. It resembles a subwoofer in your home entertainment center environment and won't get in the way.
