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?
