    No, but the price for PS4 and XB1 should also cover the investments MS and Sony make on their OSes, whereas Steam is picking up a free OS. Also, the use of commodity hardware should help reduce the price.
    MS and Sony sell their boxes at a massive loss. There's no way a Steam Machine is going to compete on price.

      It's amazing to see that many Linux users now think that Valve actually owes them something that they didn't know existed 3 days ago...

        Based on the icons I would think Friday's announcement would be software-related. SteamOS + integration w/ another OS (Android?)? SteamOS + Source 2? SteamOS + a game?

        If it's a controller announcement I'll hang myself. A controller doesn't even garner a press release.

          Didn't they mention that this gen they won't be making a loss on the consoles?

              I see what they are doing...they married a gamepad with a trackball that will do the the work of a mouse as a precision aiming device !


              Not only that but it's modular making it possible to modify if you play mainly racing cars games for example, well done Valve !

                Right now AMD is showing the nextgen Radeon GPUs live at their event.

                Word is going around that they will announce drastically improved AMD Linux drivers later during the event. That would be within the next hour or so.

                    If valve go with any INTEL gpu they will be the laughing stock of the gaming world.
