Why not compare it to the 360 XBL numbers

Because the question was about the 3 million Xbox Ones sold.

The question related to Xbox One AND to the STEAMBOX not Steam Service Subscribers...Your just like Gabe, just like a Xbox person, thats what a Xbox person would say....Your choice is clear young Kyle

Okay, didn't know it was a question that asked that. So I wont fault Gabe as much as I will fault the question. It was a poor question that should have been comparing the 360 to the Steam Machines vs the new X1.

I find it silly that he compared the X1 young numbers to Steams lifetiney numbers. Why not compare it to the 360 XBL numbers then it would be a more logical comparison, but the X1 comparison is just stupid. It would be like me comparing the Wii U sales to the Wii and saying its failure due to the gap. His comparison is idiotic and lol at the 13 different consoles.


^this

He knew exactly what he was doing, and sadly his worshippers will lap it up.


Just like angry fanboys will get mad over a joke.

you kids are so funny, getting so bottom flustered over something so small

the joke he is making isn't even a jab at microsoft, he is just using humour as a segue into the benefits of his product (you know, what he's there to promote). it wasn't a shot at xbox, you sensitive little powderpuffs, it had nothing to do with xbox.

Linux is the future. Finally, Windows sucks and I hate to use it just because it has the most games. But with that comes the most problems as well. Even MAC would be better if it wasn't for the lack of games support. Hopefully that will chance now, Steam Box will bring Linux to the masses and devs will start supporting it now.

lol, yes Gabe you have 65 million users who already have a PC that they run steam on. Who exactly are they trying to sell these steam machines to?


To those same people, console gamers are not going to fall for that crap.
