A) It's Valve, so don't expect it for another 2 or 3 years
B) Isn't the Ouya kind of the same thing?

A PC running Steam that you may or may not be able to upgrade is suddenly a console?
Can't we already do that?

Huh, neat. Wonder how they are going to handle upgrades as PC games do get more demanding as time goes on.

Knowing Valve? They'll make and release a second model some time later... and then never actually get around to delivering a third.

Good for Valve. Might pick that up and replace my xbox for that. I wonder how far they'll drive for first party console-exclusives.

Not in the least bit interesting. If I wanted to use my TV as a monitor I'd hook up my current PC to it. Secondly, I never have and never will buy anything from steam. I buy all my games at gog, Soon as I download it, it's mine. Don't need a disc, don't need to be online, just click on my little growing collection of game icons to play whatever whenever.

And anyway, the 360 is the best console for multiplats and unless something drastically changes 720 will be also. Atleast with 720 you'll get halo and forza as exclusives. Watch them try to make halflife 3 exclusive to their system until it utterly fails and then release it multiplat.
