Would a Steam Box "PC console" be more appealing to you than PS4/Xbox 3?

Because right now, my feeling is... maybe yes....


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 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. :/


The Steambox will encourage developers to add controller support though.

For their old games? Because that's what I was referring to. Kupo don't get my hopes up for something I am pretty sure will not happen. lol

And also, dont most "good" PC's already have HDMI (or equivilent, take your pick) out on their video cards? Hook it up to your TV in your living room and enable your PS3 controller to be used with it and...... you have your "Steam Box" !!!

exactly, or just hook your Ps3 to your LCD monitor and you have both your PC and PS3 at your fingertips.

Yeah that's what I thought, games for Windows require controller support for new games. So like I said earlier unless they somehow managed to get controller support for all games with the exclusive feature for the steam box then its completely pointless for someone with a half decent gaming PC.
