Son of X?

UK site PC Format has broken the news of a new top secret PC/Xbox hybrid in development called the Homestation. Following in the footsteps of the PC-influenced Xbox, the device is likely to be a non-upgradeable sealed unit, with a system board based on nVIDIA’s nForce, boasting GeForce graphics and Dolby Digital sound. HomeStation will come equipped for an array of online and offline activities: a sizeable hard drive, broadband connection and compression technology based on Windows Media Player 8 - included with Windows XP - all point to a video-on-demand role.


Games-wise, it’s anticipated HomeStation will play both PC and Xbox titles. Indeed, Microsoft’s Xbox will pave the way by establishing Microsoft as a home entertainment brand. But with the Xbox launch gearing up for a showdown with the PS2, Microsoft is keeping HomeStation under wraps. One source close to Redmond was shocked when PCFormat asked about the HomeStation: "I can’t say a thing. Listen, the thing is, Microsoft is sidestepping this so as not to distract from the Xbox. It’s really hush hush hush - I don’t know where you heard this!" [note: all Microsoft employees are trained to say that to every question...] Well, heard it they have. Be sure to head on over to PC Format and get the dibs on this amazing new piece of hardware.(shhhhhh!!!!)
