Why Do We Need a Console Class?

I'm studying the Console class for the OCPJP 6 exam. K&B says that the Console class was added to the exam for Java 6.

I don't see why we need the console class. It seems to be a combination of System.in and System.out. Why not just use the System class. Why is the console class so important that it was added to the exam?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
