It would definately be a system seller and an intelligent move from valve. I for one can live without a new Half Life though ...I'll buy the steam box nonetheless some day.

I don't think it would. It depends how good the system is or how good the value for money is. If it is steam box only it would piss of a very loyal PC fanbase (something Valve should avoid). Now if it doesn't come to the Xbox One or PS4 but does to the Steam Box and PC I don't see it making a lot of difference as weirdly the Steam Box is targeted at the PC gaming crowd and the previous factors I just mentioned would come into play (the money aspect is interesting as I think the steam box will not be cheap as Valve isn't making the consoles so the manufacturer needs to make some money off the hardware. Like how mobile phones are very expensive because the manufacturer cannot off set the cost with software sales like Sony and Microsoft does with their consoles)

Yeah, if it's not on normal steam, I'm gonna be pretty pissed off. I can't imagine that happening though because they are the majority share holder in pc games. They would take a loss doing so, because most of their customers own a pc.

It would be a huge gamble on Valve part. They would be better off adding exclusive features for SteamOS users rather than going down the exclusive for SteamOS road.

Even though all PC users would have to do is just dual-boot the OS on their machines or run the OS through a virtual environment, Valve would still receive some backlash over this.

I personally don't care. I think this series is overrated. I could never get into it.

XB1_PS41800d ago

Yikes. You must've played it years later, the games revolutionized physics in games.. I actually still don't see games that use physics in the creative manner that valve implemented them.

Th4Freak1800d ago

Not only physics, it revolutionized the whole FPS genre.

Dojan1231800d ago

I think that was my problem as well. I bought it the last steam sale for the Gary mod textures. I need to five it a shot again.

djplonker1800d ago

Same here I think left for dead is better!


half life 3

portal 3

lots of 3's to come!

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1800d ago

i could care less i like portal more. but that said everything from Valve is overrated

Belking1800d ago

Of course it's a good idea. It's no different than having exclusives on the consoles.

SnakeCQC1800d ago

Wouldnt Pc users be alienated too unless we install steam os?

Software_Lover1800d ago (Edited 1800d ago )

Yes, yes we would.

They would basically be doing the same thing they accuse Microsoft of doing. Trying to become a monopoly.

Stsonic1800d ago

No you would just dual boot into steam os

GhostPanther1800d ago

Half Life is not even a good series in my opinion. I'm good with my GTA 5 and soon will have my next gen console.

Deividas1800d ago

Spend over $700 to play one game?...I think I will pass.

ZodTheRipper1800d ago

Do you want a list of PS3 exclusives?

saber000051800d ago


Hey... Microsoft did it.
