Just a run-of-the-mill press release from Apex. Note PVR functionality. Why was Apex the first to do this? Maybe they are not hampered by The Innovator's Dilemma.
The ApeXtreme is the first device of its kind. It functions as a full-featured, high-end home DVD player, a hard-disk-based Personal Video Recorder and a home game console designed to play any PC game -- all in one attractive device. The device moves PC versions of electronic games out of the computer room and into the TV room, giving gamers the ability to play their favorite "PC-only" games on a console machine, with a bigger game image -- on their standard TV.I wonder if customers of this device have to pay for the Windows OS as well? MSRP is $499?!?!
Introduced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the ApeXtreme was honored as the "Best of CES" in the "Home Audio & Video" category, as well as being a CES Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase Honoree.
