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

If it's priced well, then yes.

no, dont really feel like, going through the trouble of getting another gaming pc, or turning the one i have now into the main gaming station. im not big on graphics like that, and the only games i prefer on pc are ones that benefit from having a mouse and keyboard, i hate using a mouse and keyboard on the couch/recliner/bed, and playing those games with a controller takes away the main advantage it has for me, so no this wouldnt really benefit me enough to ditch sony or whoever makes more of the games i like next gen.

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.

Nothing will ever be exclusive to the Steambox.

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.

thats is what i do, just run an hdmi cable over from stereo to pc and play.

DLC only budget PC, I say no thank you. I got my own custom build gaming ready PC.
I will not even bother with PS4/720 if they are DLC only.

It's $900, you can build much better for FAR less and still be vastly more powerful than PS4.
