I dont care for another gaming console like steambox, ps4, wiiu and xboxone is where its at, steam box is just like another pc in a tiny box so therefor i already got one na na na. Can you play killzone sf, infamous ss, gran turismo7, deep down, knack, uncharted 4, the last of us 2, little big planet3, forza 5, halo, quantum break, etc on steam box? nope!

Wasn't the steam box supposed to be like an easy upgradable console. The whole point of a console is knowing all the games will work on it. Most people that want something like that already have gaming PC's. Doesn't make much sense in my opinion.

would be cool if they made this an upgradeable know instead of a brand new console just sell licensed upgrades every few years

This is how I see it.

Console lovers are going to stick with the established console brands, Xbox and PS. Most have never even used Steam before - they've had no reason to, as Xbox and PS have fulfilled their gaming needs. Steam's customers are PC gamers, who have stuck with their PCs, instead of making the leap to console gaming. Why would they now?

From my perspective, the 'Steam Box' has FLOP written all over it.

I am interested in adding a gaming rig along side my consoles, and if it's Valve even better. I love supporting companies that look out for us, and Valve does that in spades.

Id buy one if its cheaper than building your own pc.

"It could be more powerful then ps4, but the price point would be higher"

But you'd get a 600$ box with game that are 2-3 times cheaper compare to the 400$ console that make you buy game at higher price, without any great discount AND making you pay 350$ in it's lifetime just to access online.

Steambox could be a hit, You'd keep the awesome things that make pc gaming way better then consoles AND you'll get the couch experience on top of that.

Out powering the PS4 is easy.
Doing it for $400 is a different story...

This is a flop idea for the most part.. maybe a niche customer base. In the end its about the games and Sony, MS, Nintendo have them. Its more than just about multiplat and shooters.

Not this again.

You guys are right about the PC being more powerful. My pc runs circles around the ps4 but most games I want to play are not on the PC.

I've never had experiences like The Last Of Us or Journey on any of PC games I played in the past.

The only thing PC users brag about is the graphics, resolution, and framerate.

ok, but why should I get a Steam box? Will Half Life 3 and Left 4 Dead 3 only be on it and Valve ignore PC/xbone/PS4? I think not, so until they have something else for it that only Steam box has I have no reason to get one.

Instead, I just went and bought a gaming PC.

Why are there so many comments? Did anyone read the article, it was so terrible. Maybe the discussion here is great, I duno. I want my 2 minutes back.

The Ps4 is a very clever device if you want to get games running as good on Pc be prepared to pay a lot of money .
Mister_G  +   873d ago
How much will it cost though? If it's similar price bracket to PS4/X1 then the war will really hot up! :D

PS4/XBOXONE are custom parts.

As for the PS4 having a low end processor, that's bull.

It does more flops then an I5 2500K processor, and that processor is decent enough for gaming, i know i have

The GPU inside the PS4 is custom built, it's not a plain 7870.

PS4 does faster GPU compute then a 680GTX.

People doesn't realize key in this is software not hardware... SteamOS sucess is what Gabe wants, SteamBox is only a needed mid step.
SlapHappyJesus  +   873d ago
If so, I doubt it would be in-line, in terms of price, with even the Xbox One. Though you can then factor in the money saved with games over time.
That said, I do like the idea of these "Steam Boxes", bringing console-like experiences to the PC space at, hopefully, a decent price point.
Might bring more people to PC gaming, which is something I would like to see.

These constant posts, bickering about which system will provide the greatest detail because its more powerful, is fucking pissing me right off. I'm hitting the wrong end of 30 and perhaps I've just mellowed in recent years, or maybe I'm part of the majority that has their heads out of the clouds. Either way, they are fucking consoles. CONSOLES!! Get a fucking grip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
