No surprise, Dell picked up Alienware-- but what will this mean for the industry?

Regardless of the situation, this is pretty big news with industry wide implications. This will send shockwaves in the gaming industry judging by the two hundred or so incoming phone calls that were fielded this afternoon at Voodoo.

I have received a number of emails, comments, and phone calls over the month about this particular topic.  To be perfectly honest I had no official knowledge that Dell was to acquire anyone, but I do know that they were doing some heavy research into the space.  I initially thought that Dell would continue to push their XPS brand because they have never made any acquisitions of this sort throughout their history.  Dell is a brand proud company, but perhaps they realized that it was time for a change.

Whatever the implications are I truly believe this is great news for the industry, and it validates the gaming space once again.  I took a few minutes to go over some of the possibilities.
