Are you going to buy a Steambox?

So will the streambox have exclusive games coming to it like an actual console or just watered down versions of pc games.


Launching with HL3, L4D3, and Portal 3 exclusives. I've seen the future.

No. I still don't actually understand its purpose. If the steambox ended up with any exclusives, I'd boycott Valve.

Steambox isn't for people that use the PC boards. They can access Steam, and they can already connect their PCs to their HDTVs if they want to.

Steambox is 99% for console-only gamers who don't know how to build a PC to eliminate some of the hurdles that have prevented these types of gamers from gaming on the PC up to this point. Try asking the various console boards if they are interested in it.


So Gaben eliminates the hurdles of building your own PC, then puts in MOAR GINORMOUS HURDLES that come with running Linux on anything? Not helping!

I have one already i put together myself.

If you have a small PC connected to your TV that runs Steam Big Picture, then you have a Steam Box

that would be so awesome if it were true... maybe not those games but at least something like valve taking leaps to secure exclusivitiy with a bunch of titles.

it's basically giving the finger to MS for pretty much stealing a huge bunch of prior PC-only devs.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/
