Alienware's Concept UFO: See The Switch-Style Console That Plays PC Games

Switch up how you play your PC games.

34 Comments

Alienware is known to show off new hardware at the CES every year, and CES 2020 was no different. This year it revealed a prototype called the Concept UFO--a portable PC system with a built-in screen and controllers on either end that slide off. So it's more or less like a Switch that plays PC games!

CNET has gone hands-on with the Concept UFO, and said that, compared to many other prototypes shown at CES 2020, it "looks and feels finished, with a high degree of polish." The prototype consists of a small Windows 10 tablet with two attached controllers on either side, and like the Switch it can output to a bigger screen as well.

There's no news of a release date, or even definite confirmation that Alienware will release this as a consumer product, according to CNET, but they report that World War Z was "surprisingly playable" on the Concept UFO. We'll report back with any additional details Alienware shares during its January 7 event referenced in the tweet above.

The Nintendo Switch, which serves as the clear inspiration for Concept UFO, is currently discounted on eBay. Here's our list of the best games on the system.
