Quote from: DankPanties on May 02, 2012, 09:44:08 AMDon't be surprised to see a "Steam Box" from Valve. Basically a computer in a console package, with Linux as the OS, that runs games streamed from Steam. Just remember who told you first.
QuoteSpeaking to Kotaku at the 2012 Video Game Awards this weekend, Gabe Newell confirmed that Valve is working on a living room-friendly PC that runs Steam. Newell says that reception for Steam's new, TV-oriented Big Picture mode has been "stronger than expected," and the company will now work to get Steam for Linux out of beta. Beyond that, Gaben only gave us one other tidbit about the Steam Box, stating that "our hardware will be a very controlled environment." In other words, the Steam Box will be a console, rather than some kind of PC that you can upgrade.

Quote from: Zoinkity on December 10, 2012, 04:59:46 PMFor as many problems as Nintendo has, it did do a few things right:1) if you have an internet connection you don't pay an extra charge for multiplayer2) no plans to do online disk checksAs someone who usually doesn't have internet at home, both are somewhat important. It's the biggest reason I don't use Steam; I don't want to be locked out of my own games.Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I like to stick in a game and be able to play it.
Quote from: Dankpanties on December 10, 2012, 03:29:29 PMI just don't like the idea of being unable to play a downloaded game offline without having to log onto Steam first.

Quote from: Jorpho on December 11, 2012, 12:18:04 AMI can't quite see this as making much of a dent.
Quote from: Jorpho on December 11, 2012, 12:18:04 AMOn the other hand, I think it would easily steal whatever remaining thunder the OUYA might have, and that in itself might make good business sense.
