This strange looking box by company "Envizions Computer Entertainment Corporation" caught my attention a short while ago over at Nordic Hardware. They've announced details of a unique offering set to enter the gaming console market later this year which they call the EVO: PHASE 1. It's essentially a disguised PC running a Radeon HDMI X1600 Pro graphics card, Athlon64 3200+ processor, and customized liquid cooling.
It'll be interesting to see how well this thing sells....
