This pach guy is a disgrace to the sport of gaming, I don't understand why some people would even consider listening to what he has to say.

They probably think he must be smart because he's wearing glasses and a tie.

Then you already lost. He got his views. Maybe you just stop watching and commenting.

Once again Pachter tells us the way it is. Preach.

Sometimes he's right, sometimes he isn't. I could probably have the same results if I were to answer the questions he gets asked.

As for his Steambox answer I disagree. He thinks most people want to play with a keyboard and mouse. That is only partially true. What Steam has done is educate the consumer that it's not just an isolated experience where you have a PC in a dedicated room with a monitor and a keyboard. That's why they brought out Big Picture mode and advertise more what games can be played with a controller. Lots of games support controllers now.

free, awesome deals, easier messaging system, not cluttered with endless menus to flip through.You can buy games that came out a year ago for $5 on Steam, and Xbox Live tries to sell last gen games for $20. Both services have an online storefront, but Steam's storefront is easier to navigate. In addition, they are more upfront about game details than Xbox Live. Also, Steam offers better gaming previews with footage of almost all of the games whereas Xbox Live only does this for select titles.

-Cheap games

-Custom community groups for anything

I know, but I don't really care online and Cloud.
No physical format it is a shit.
I'm a old and conservative gamer.
Yes, Valve games cool, but i not buy SteamBox. 100%.
