You Can Probably Drive A Truck Over That Valve-Backed Gaming PC

The Wii U can’t survive a microwave. The PlayStation Vita can survive a 1.2m drop. And I guess technically the Xbox 360 can run Crysis.

But forget all those old stress tests.

The new “development stage system optimised for computer gameplay on large high-definition television monitors” — which we just learned last night will be backed by Valve and may as well be thought of as Valve’s first foray into living room gaming hardware — can most likely survive this:

That’s right, the makers of Xi3 chassis, which houses the new Valve-backed device, say you can drive a truck over their modular PCs. They showed that last fall.

Go three minutes or so into this video to see it happen.

That video is from October, when Xi3Corporation was showing off the device and some of the models of their Xi3 computer. ($US500 for the entry one, no price given for their gaming one, which may have nothing to do with this new Valve-backed one, which is codenamed Piston).

Plenty may have changed since this October video was made, but hopefully the new Valve-backed Xi3 device is still truck-proof!
