Some games are fun on the computer, others are fun in the living room or socially. I think you're vastly under estimating how much variety there is in a user base the size of Steam, you're only thinking of your own usage scenarios. It's apparently going to support user expansion and won't have a locked bootloader so people will be able to tinker away too.
