    I have no clue what you're trying to say, but the x86 (and inherently also the x86-64) isa is perhaps the most common in higher-end systems, so why not?

    But the main advantage is probably the fact that you can easily get a 'PC' in your living room now.
    Essentially you get to replace a useless console of a certain tier (be it current gen ~$300 tier or older/lower-tier ~$100 gen) with a decent PC, preconfigured with Linux and Steam (and yes, Valve is working on porting Source games to Linux, currently they're getting amazing results - e.g. L4D2 runs better than on Windows). Without restrictions and with Valve's recent focus on making usable crap (just look at how much Steam improved over the years - and then look at how much MS "improved" Windows and the Xbox platform) I'm pretty sure this could very well be a big thing. Not to mention that them offering a "build-it-yourself" option would literally bring the custom PC .. ehm ... "console" ... market right to every newbie's doorstep.

    Correct if I'm wrong (which I may be), but doesn't x86 mean 32-bit? And doesn't 32-bit have a memory cap of 4gb? If that's the case, that's what I meant.

    How much ram do you think current generation consoles run with? Definitely less than 4gb.

    Well yeah, the generation is what, 7 years old now? But modern day computers run with a lot more, if this "console" is going to be outputting DirectX 11 (or even 13 in the near future) on a big screen TV, it should have some more. (Especially if it's going to be running an entire OS with other things to do on it as well). I don't know, not saying it's BAD, just saying, hope they change it to x64.

    x86-64 is just an extension of the 32 bit x86 isa Though many people do use "x86" and "x64" to refer to 32 or 64 bit software/hardware.
