It’s a console.

And yet it’s still a PC.

I heard It can play every Steam game on it

Actually it doesn’t.
It doesn’t even actually play games.
It’s just a box stuffed with pictures of Gaben.

You’re welcome.

At least those pictures would be 1080p.

Currently the company has two prototypes: Gordon and Freeman.

Well fuck. These are going to be popular. Especially if they have some special release of HL3 on them anything to do with HL3.

And now I’ve come to a dilema. PS3 or SteamBox?
Yes, there are a fuckton of games to play on Steam OS, plus discount; but I really want the Metal Gear Solid franchise, and that’s on Xbox or PS3. Plus Uncharted, which I’d like to try, and some PS1 games.
What do?

The Steam Box is just going to be a glorified gaming PC. I still don’t see the appeal.

Might be cheaper compared to a computers that would work at the same level. Might open up some new developers to households. Generally things are gonna become more revealed in a year, I’m sure Valve will change the entire console by then since the console appears to be made from parts from other companies like Nvidia and AMD, and I like AMD processors. Launch games will already be available by Steam. Why aren’t consoles PCs too? Why limit everything people do?

Personally, I’m hoping they will change their hard drives to SSD Samsung 840 evos, which would be freaking amazing. I’m thinking of buying one for my computer right now.

I think it’s supposed to be subsidized somewhat based on the fact that it will be running Steam OS and probably be locked into some kinda of steam mode. The more games you buy, the more they make, so the cheaper they can sell you the Steam Box.
