So with your economics degree you came up with an established business with a solid consumer base should be "sweating bullets" over a companies first foray into a "console". I'm sure they're aware but did you take in to consideration MS not allowing steam to sell their PC games or the other companies that are trying to start their own digital store fronts?
I don't know maybe Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo should be worried. I've a feeling that the Steam Box is going to be for a niche group of games. I do hope I'm wrong but I don't see it being as main stream as the consoles. PC people aren't going to bite because they have PCs, console gamers I think are going to be more interested in the traditional consoles ( i base this off nothing more than a feeling).
I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own.
