    You're kidding me, right? You do know that new games are actually coming to SteamOS/Linux, right?


    :facepalm: Developers need stable ABIs and APIs to develop against, that "quick development pace" is the problem.
    Oh, you're one of those guys. :/

    Honestly not looking forward to this, sure, I'm excited to see far more games ported and made for linux (because as we all know, its a far more superior OS) but as for having steam be a console, no thanks. I have steam specifically to play on a computer and not off my big flat screen with a controler. I can just sense the number of 10 y/o's rushing to the store with their parents to get a steambox..

    Steam's market is hardcore PC gamers (age group of 15 to, let's say, 45).

    So testers will be given a free machine? Unbelievable, hence I should buy some controller... What means play in big picture? Play on a TV?

    But the beauty of it is that it can be a console OR a computer. Either way, it outperforms the competition.
