74. Re: Valve Living Room PCs Next Year? Dec 11, 2012, 00:54 Krizzen
 
The real question is will the hardware even be viable one, two, or even three years into the future? If it's really powerful and affordable because of the sheer volume they'll sell, I can see this being a good thing. Gaming PCs aren't cheap, and consoles up till this point have been highly bastardized PCs.

So, if I can get a deal of the century on a high end gaming rig that will be viable for years, it may be worth dropping a few hundred bucks on it versus building a new $1000+ PC.

A few more points:
- Is "sideloading" permitted? (thanks Win8 for new unthinkable vocabulary) If not, crash and burn.
- Is it upgradeable? If not, crash and burn.
- Is it a standard form factor, i.e. truly customizable? If not, crash and burn.
- Will it have 16+ cores and like 64+ GB ram? If not, crash and burn.
