I welcome this. PCs are eternal. If a game is on the PC it will never disappear. When a console is discontinued the only way to preserve the games would be through emulation, and well you can't do that when the consoles are super powerful.


Well for older PC games you do need emulation. MS DOS for example...

PC's may be eternal, but OS's are not.

Which is easy and free to work around.

I don't get it, i have had my pc hooked onto my tv for ages now and i run and play steam games on it... Why would they even have to release a 'console to run steam on'?

AMD = finished, have you not heard and Microsoft decided to go with Intel


Source? All of the recent rumors point to Microsoft using a 6-8 core AMD processor with a AMD GPU.

Rumors also point to Sony using a AMD A10 APU with a AMD GPU.

And of course the Wii U uses a AMD GPU as well.


Leaks show both Sony and M$ using the new quad core jaguar CPU from AMD.

New interface for Steam, I personally hate it. I tried it during beta and was not a great experience. Some may like it but I rather just have my boring list and click on the game I'm going to play

That wasn't my point, you can't get Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Pikmin, Luigis Mansion, etc anywhere else, ever. That's why Nintendo is a mainstay in the gaming console business.

It's not hard to get Nintendo franchises on PC, even if it's not entirely legal.

It's for the same dummy market that buys the 360.
