Steam Box
-SD-
Just wondering what you guys think of the Steam Box and its potential as a forth option for gaming on the living room telly?

Is anyone planning on getting the system specifically for use as a 'console' on their main TV? Are you getting the official Box or a third party system like the Alienware or Piston? Maybe even build you own. Has the Steam Box affected your purchase of a PS4/X1 in any way?

I'm not quite sure what to make of it all. The fact that there's different SKUs kills it for me as the whole point of a console is its fixed specification. The controller certainly looks.... interesting, I wonder how many users will resort to a 360 controller.

I hold a bad opinion of steam to much drm and buggery. The extra space need for there system is huge hate that bollocks found an alternative I use launch box it's sort of a cross between hyper spin and a pc launcher like steam only $20 dollars for a unlimited installer, alough I have free addition atm Its fully featured for 99.9% needs of gamers only thing that is a premium feature I can see is tv mode.

Not many games I want for pc I did the old driving rig thing for a few years , but sold it all due to space the setup was quite big. Emulation and a small selection of pc games and I am happy. Steam is I think is only useful if your more of a pc gamer.

I believe the appeal is using it* as a true dedicated gaming PC. The form also makes it living room friendly. It is also a Microsoft-free, artisan style computer, which to some people is also an appeal. On Neogaf, the 'experts' suggest to wait a few years until the micro console/streaming box/TV computer market settles for better deals/greater optimization. I am interested, but I'm going to wait 2-3 years before jumping in (although, it is speculated in that time we may also see a new console generation too lol).

*I use 'it' when I should really be using 'them' since there are so many. Although not a deal breaker, I do find the high variety of steam machines to be confusing and jarring, rather than unifying.
