Hey, if the only thing holding them back is a marketing campaign... sounds like an easy fix doesn't it You are the second or third person here that has for some reason assumed that they won't advertise their new product. Why? What other way are they going to win this battle against mega-corporations MS and Sony? Not only will Valve directly market SteamOS, but every company making SteamBox's will be marketing their own hardware as well.

No I think they will advertise it but I don't think that's a magical bandaid that will undo decades of branding from other companies. The controller is going to be a major adjustment for people too and there's also the issue with platform fragmentation when you have this many vendors involved. I really like this idea but where we disagree is that I think their implementation is more niche than it is mass market.

But hey if its a massive success then that's great for me either way
