$550 for dual core, 4 gb of ancient DDR3,and no Blu Ray. I can only imagine the lol's trying to run Uncharted 4 on that thing.It would probably implode.

Nice try Valve .Stick to peddling 2-D early access 16-bit pre alphas and turning other peoples mods into games.

/JTRtopic aside, i found this interesting:

"We've got 3,000 titles that are going to be instantly available to you. The Steam library that you might already have, that'll be instantly available to you."

seems pretty hyperbolic unless they're including windows for free.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

That hardware just isn't going to cut it if they're competing with consoles.

It isn't going to cut it for even basic gaming.
Why start with an i3???? Even a baseline i5 would do better. You need at least quad these days.

It will be just fine if the GPU is anywhere close to a 750 Ti. If they're smart, they're marketing these things to play console ports, F2P, and older games primarily, not ARMA 4, BF 6, and Star Citizen.
