Gabe: Windows 8 is bad cause it has a store built in!
I'm gonna go make my own OS that has MY store built in

Valvedrones: GENIUS! WE LOVE YOU GABEN-KUN KAWAII UGUU~~


This. Steambox and SteamOS is 100% about controlling game distribution. Valve makes its money by selling games through Steam. They want as much control over the process as possible, and they want everyone buying games only from them.

Except there is nothing stopping you from buying the game on Amazon or Greenman Gaming or Gamersgate or any other online store that has Steam games. Come back when they stop letting you buy them from anywhere but Steam and you have a point instead of just being a fool with no idea what he's talking about.

There's also the little problem with SteamOS being open, so anyone can put their distribution platform on it.
TBH, it wouldn't surprise me if Desura already worked on it.

Ahh, this one does not look into the future. Let me educate you. Let's say a game requires Steam to play. You can buy the game elsewhere, but what you are buying is a Steam key. So what happens when Steam charges other sites for the ability to sell their keys? Hmm?

Fanboys...so blind. Wake up, dude.
