[Update] Alienware's Frank Azor has clarified to Eurogamer the upgradability of its forthcoming line of Steam Machines. According to the Alienware boss, gamers will be able to upgrade the box, it just won't be as easy as working with a standard PC.
[Original] The recently announced Steam Machine from Alienware will receive yearly iterations, the popular PC manufacturer has announced.
In addition to annual releases, the SteamOS-powered box will be locked in terms of specs, not allowing gamers to upgrade their machines like they would a PC. General manager Frank Azor shared the news with Trusted Reviews, saying:
Does this have you rethinking your Alienware Steam Machine purchase? Were you even considering picking one up in the first place? It's going to be really interesting to see how well Steam Machines do when they launch later this year.
