43. Re: Full Steam Machines Ahead at CES Jan 7, 2014, 13:57 descender
 
I don't think that's a magical bandaid that will undo decades of branding

I'm sure somewhere, someone at Nintendo said the same thing when MS stepped into the ring.

I think the biggest draw for current PC gamers, which are a very different core group than mainstream "gamers"... is the game streaming, and the controller. This is of course assuming the controller natively supports XInput and I don't have to use x360CE on every lazily ported game anymore.

How did Sony get access to utilize DirectX on a closed, directly competing platform? Valve will need to take a similar step to make their machines truly viable and reduce fragmentation among developers.
