The only saving grace I can see for them is that they've promised an annual refresh with each new ARM architecture; if they can survive until they release their A15 model then they should be able to pull through and actually become a decent platform for console gaming. But hey, it's still somewhat of a competitive deal at $100 for a quad core A9 system with wifi and enclosure, the first included game controller is like a freebie. Still really excited for the $300 steam box model though! I used to love console gaming on the PS2, but with EQOA dying after WoW came out I just ended up completely transitioning to PC gaming without looking back even after the newer consoles came out. To just have a little complete linux PC connected to the living room tv with the option of playing games in Big Picture is just an ideal scenario for me. I'm still waiting to hear what the advised specs are to be able to determine if I could just assemble my own steambox at the same $300 price point as the "better" model or if buying the pre-built box would be more cost effective.
