Do We Need A Steam Box?

Gioteck asks do we need a Steam Box and what impact will it have on the market in general? Plus we end our article with a cheesy pun. What more could you want? (Dev, Industry, Next-Gen, PS4, Steam, Tech, Wii U, Xbox One)

Yes.

More competition is always good.

Disagree the steambox like pc will need constant upgrades and at the prices they want? It won't be competition for consoles. They just want to industrialize pcs and its not gonna work.

Is the Steam Box really reaching to the console crowd though? Is it upgradeable? In which case is it just a funky little machine for the sole purpose of playing Steam games? Will it support the entire Steam library?

Those are some of the concerns I have for it at least.

I'm not very interested, but if Valve can leverage their top notch IP's well, giving them a sweet looking new coat of paint and some new gameplay elements. Portal, Left 4 Dead, Half-Life, then any serious gamer will have to at least think about taking the plunge. I've already got my Wii U. Plan to get a PS4 - not sure when yet, waiting on price. After that MS has my ear since I enjoy my 360 'enough'. Valve can do it, possibly, but they are going to have a challenge.

Honestly no.. I get tired of repeating myself about this damn box so I will just keep it short and let it speak for itself when it digs it's own grave. I see no reason for PC enthusiast to want to even pay attention to this and the casual are playing consoles and handhelds or are on their smart phones and tablets.

The time to release this thing was years ago but now?.. They are just asking for it.. Mark my words.

I lost total respect for Valve also when they just dropped Half Life.. I know many PC users did. If they made a new Half Life exclusive or some crap like that to the Steam Box I will stab a bitch. If they did that it would be a huge insult to all the PC enthusiast that even built them up to be able to make this box in the first place.

Erm really? You are aware games on steam are at the most $40 right? PC games are $20/£15 cheaper than console versions minimum. Resident Evil 6 PC is out this month and its $25/£16.. Yet console version was $70/£40 at launch.
