Remember how Origin PC was quick to hop aboard the Steam Machine bandwagon with plans for SteamOS-powered living room versions of its Chronos desktops? Well, it's back with another teaser for these rigs -- but, like other gaming PC makers, it's downplaying the Steam angle this time around. While the company's newly rechristened Omega line can still boot multiple operating systems, they're more PCs that happen to sit in your living room than they are launchpads for Valve's console-like software. Origin isn't divulging specs or pricing. However, it's promising support for the "highest-end" NVIDIA video cards, liquid cooling and optional peripherals like Xbox controllers and a possible all-in-one keyboard and trackpad hybrid. Just be prepared to wait -- the Omega series is only due to show up sometime in 2015.
