Origin PC has finally unleashed the successor to its original "Big O" gaming machine that debuted way back in 2010. While the original Big O combined a high-end gaming PC with the internals of an Xbox 360 gaming console, the new 2019 edition of the Big O is a much more ambitious design and was built to celebrate Origin PC’s 10th anniversary.
The new Big O combines a badass gaming PC with the internals from an Xbox One X and a PlayStation 4 Pro. In addition, there's also a slot incorporated into the chassis to slide in a Nintendo Switch to complete the console gaming trifecta. The donor Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro are removed from their plastic enclosures and mounted vertically within the enclosure.
The Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro components are liquid cooled using, of course, green liquid for the former and blue for the latter. The Nintendo Switch integration takes a more straightforward approach with a simple dock interface in the front panel of the chassis for the portable console.
Mounted opposite of the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro are the components for the PC gaming rig. There you'll find an MSI MEG Z390 GODLIKE motherboard complete with an Intel Core i9-9900K processor and an NVIDIA RTX Titan Turing-based GPU. Since this is an over-the-top gaming system, you won't be surprised to find 64GB of Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4-3200 memory along with dual 2TB Samsung 970 EVO NVMe SSDs. If that wasn't enough, there's also a 14GB Seagate Barracuda 14TB HDD thrown in for good measure to handle all of your extended storage needs.
Accessing all of gaming systems is a relatively simple affair, as there is an HDMI switch built into the chassis that allows you to quickly move from playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider on the PC to Spider-Man on the PS4 Pro to Super Mario Maker 2 on the Nintendo Switch.
“The amazing games and the incredibly beautiful, ridiculously powerful, and totally custom machines like the Big O keep me just as excited and passionate about gaming PCs today than I was 20 years ago when I started in this industry,” said Kevin Wasielewski, ORIGIN PC CEO and co-founder. “We are very proud to celebrate our 10-year anniversary with the launch of the Big O and to share our passion and creativity with the world.”
Unfortunately, the Big O isn’t available for sale, and there are no plans to make it available to the public. But even if that was an option, it would set you back around $17,000.
