"Black Friday" Availability For The Xi3 PISTON Console


Xi3's PISTON Console will be available for purchase beginning on Black Friday: November 29, 2013. But anyone who pre-ordered a PISTON Console during or before the SXSW 2013 Gaming Expo will receive their PISTON Consoles on or before November 15, 2013.

Jason A. Sullivan, Xi3's founder, president and CEO will provide the first public preview of production PISTON Consoles at the Interop New York trade show this week at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

Xi3 also revealed today additional information about its PISTON Consoles. Specifically, storage capacity for PISTON Consoles has been doubled; PISTON's Ethernet controller has been optimized for gameplay traffic, and PISTONs will ship with pre-loaded "Pack-in" titles.

Previously, Xi3 announced that PISTON utilizes internal solid-state SSD storage and that PISTON Consoles will ship standard with 128 GB of SSD storage. Xi3 further revealed today that it has been able to double the potential SSD storage capacity of the PISTON Console by adding a second SSD connector within its PISTON design, as well as a separate, internal microSD slot. This second SSD connector gives PISTONs the capability of more than 1 TB of super-fast (6Gbps) solid-state storage.

Xi3 also revealed today that it has designed the PISTON's Ethernet controller to recognize and prioritize computer gaming data to the top of PISTON's network queue. Such data traffic prioritization will further speed-up response times for PISTON gameplay.

In addition, by adding a second SSD to their PISTONs, users will be able to load a second operating system onto their machines, including the newly announced SteamOS, according to Sullivan.

Xi3 also revealed today that the company will ship PISTON Consoles with "pack-in" gaming titles pre-loaded onto its PISTONs. Details about publisher and developer partnerships, as well as a list of pack-in titles, will be released before Black Friday.

Built on the modular Xi3 Computer Architecture, the PISTON Console is housed in a grapefruit-sized, matte black aluminum chassis with chrome trim. The console comes equipped with a quad-core x86-based 64-bit processor integrated with 384 programmable discrete class graphics cores capable of running the most popular games. PISTON further supports up to 4K-resolution (4096x2160 pixels) and provides users with the ability to run three high-definition monitors or displays simultaneously.

PISTON Consoles are available for pre-order today at $999.00 at http://xi3.org/buy_now-piston.php.
