There's been some confusion over the Xi3 "Piston" modular PC. It's smaller than most home consoles, powerful enough to run most of today's games at good settings, Xi3 received an investment from Valve, and the two companies seemed pretty friendly at CES 2012. The Piston is not the fabled Steam Box everyone's been whispering about, but could it be an unofficial glimpse at what's to come?
