  • Valve's Steam Machine

    What's people's opinions on these? Good idea? Bad idea?
    Is it possible to just build your own and run Steam's OS?
    I like the idea of having access to my Steam catalogue to use on my TV but not at the prices they seem to be launching at.

    It's a good idea for people with a large library on steam. Would it offer the same flexibility of a PC though? How are they to upgrade etc?

      I've no idea. I read a bit more after I posted and they seem to be controller only, which is a massive put off for me because I much prefer mouse and keyboard, plus most of my games require a mouse and keyboard. Think it may be tempting to build a mini pc for the living room.

          Just look like generic media PC's that have the Steam OS installed

            That's pretty much what they'll be...

              More info on alienware's plan..

              Alienware Steam Machine not upgradeable, will be an annual release - play.tm

              Can't see this gaining much traction.

                Paying a big lump sum yearly every time your system seems a little slow. Sounds like a poor business plan to me.

                  Can we install the Steam OS onto our own custom builds?

                    I don't think the steam OS will offer much (if anything more) over the steam client for Windows just now. Maybe just makes better use of the resources for gaming.

                        Steam has that "Big Screen" feature now anyway doesnt it? They're really not offereing anything over having a badass gaming HTPC with windows installed and just rinning Steam on it in Big Screen mode. In fact there offering a lot less and charging people for it :/

                        Un;ess I'm missing something, it's ****, lol

                          That's what i was thinking. It's like PC gaming for ignorant people who have lots of money.

                          360 wireless pad + big picture mode is going to be the same i'm thinking
