Itīs about the games for me and Sony/Microsoft have too many exclusive games that interest me so Iīll take a ps4/xbox 720 over a steam box anyday.

though I like Steam's concept, they won't be around forever considering it's all digital.

Dude, if Steam ever came out with a console that lets you play all PC games with controller support then I would sell all my consoles. lol I know that cannot happen as they would have to rework so many games, but its a good fantasy none the less. lol

I have a very capable PC so I would have no reason to get the Steam Box unless it did something like I mentioned earlier with all games having controller support.

I am curious as to how they are going to handle it as only games released after a specific time are required to have controller support, and only a handful of old games work with the controller. Playing KOTOR2 on PC with a controller would be epic, wish someone would make a mod for it. :/

no.

I'll always prefer building my own PC.
