Razer has officially gone nuts, and all in a good way. At CES 2012 today, the hardware gurus unveiled Project Fiona, a tablet-console-PC hybrid of a device that is designed to play PC games right out-of-the-box. Yup, you read that correct: PC games. This is all Windows 8 goodness, baby.

The 10.1″ tablet is fitted with two nunchuk-like controllers, bringing the best of both console and PC gaming together. It looks a bit chunky, but it’s still a concept and will hopefully be improved to be more carry-friendly.

Speaking to Engadget, Razer Chief Gamer Min-Lian Tan said that although PC games can be played on the device straight-off, developers can add support for Fiona if they so wish. So yes, Fiona specific control schemes will be allowed.

Here are it’s specs:
- Intel Core i7
- 10.1″ 1280×800 display
- Full-screen user interface supporting multi-touch
- 3-axis gyro, magnetometer, accelerometer
- Force feedback
- Dolby 7.1 surround sound
- WiFi 802.11b/g/n
- Bluetooth 3.0

Could this be the answer for PC gamers wanting their fix on the go? Time will tell, especially when that time tells us the price of this beast. For now, drool on the images and video below.
