I'm a pc fanboi so i'm on Steams side here... but i think it's hilarious they're combating the console market by producing a small computer, used solely for gaming, left in the living room, connected to you TV.

oh the ironing.

I don't see it as "combating", rather trying to attract console gamers to the steam service, the same way the attempt was made with Playstation, to make more money off digital sales.
Australian culture is about two things, football and racism.

I do like the streaming capabilities of SteamOS, where you can stream games from your desktop computer to the Steam Machine in the living room.
For that you'd probably only need a very low-spec box, or build one yourself from old parts.
