AlienWare Steam Machine is upgradeable, mods arduous

AlienWare managed to upset gamers when they said its Steam Machine would not be able to be upgraded, which seemed like a stupid move for PC gaming. However, they have since backtracked, or as they have called it made it clearer what they actually meant.

They have said that its interpretation of the Steam Machine will be upgradeable in a recent Eurogamer report, although mods will be arduous. So why did they not just come out and say from the start that modding would be possible, but doing so would be very hard to do, it would have saved all that anger and confusion?

Not being able to update AlienWare’s Steam Machine would have been such a stupid move so we just cannot understand Frank Azor’s thinking when he made the claim that there would be no customization options.

He also added that if you wanted a modified Steam Machine, then you would be better off choosing one of their other AlienWare systems — not exactly the best way to promote a new device is it?

We can understand that some of the other devices are easier to upgrade, but if a gamer wants to customize a Steam Machine, then they have the right to do so.

Steam Machine looks set to be a huge deal in 2014 because a number of companies have already announced their support for the project, and we especially like this Steam Machine gameplay with what is said to be cheap controller.
