"PC-first", not PC-exclusive and "MMO-ish"... see I knew there was a catch if Romero had "plans". Obviously the plan is to fuck up again. OK. Have at it, Johnnyboy. Your money, not mine .

They forgot the following PC version feature:

  • Turned the game from a retarded 3rd person GoW clone into a true first person Ghost Recon game


  • As long as the above feature is not implemented I'm not touching this shit.

    This is bullshit and so is bethesda. Middlefinger

    Yeah them arseholes!!11 How dare they outsource FNV to Obsidian instead of an Eastern European RPG sweatshop where they could have had FNV made for a fraction and still raked in the millions just off of brand recognition?

    Obsidian had less than half the resources and time bethesda took on Fallout 3. Fallout New Vegas was a better game by all accounts for the limited time and money they had budgeted.

    Yes and have you heard? The fuckers from Bethesda forced every dev at Obsidian to tie one of their arms to the chair and put tape over one of their eyes! The working conditions must have been true horror! HORRORORORORORORORAAAWRRRR!!!!

    So they have gone F2P?

    Hope that works out for them.
    If I remember right, they made more money off their sales on GoG than they did off of steam.

    You remember so wrong it's not even funny.

    - 200K Steam sales
    - 40K GOG sales
    - 10K everyone else sales

    * Referring to the storyline

    Wow!! Really now?!? You mean a story-driven on-rails RPG has a stronger story than an open world non-linear RPG? Holy cow! Did you figure that out all by yourself or did you have help from mommy?

    With those proposed specs I doubt they could build a capable rig for less than $400, and highly doubt they could sell it for less than $500. The next generation of consoles is going to catch up in terms of graphics (at least DX11.1 standard) anyway. The rumor claims that it is going to use mobile graphics, I think the biggest move Valve could make is use an MXM based GPU (if I recall there is an MXM GTX 580m board), allowing users to buy cheap upgrades through Steam so that their system can stay current to PC specs.
    The consoles are cheaper because they are crappier.

    The margins are far less than $100 on most computers in that price range and if valve was smart, they would sell it at cost (they'd more than make up the difference selling steam games through it). IMHO It would be silly to build a mobile based one, the parts are more expensive and less capable (similar mobile model names are usually a mere 50% of the speed of desktop). They'd be better off just building a smaller desktop form factor.

    As for cost, its less than one might think.

    $200 for i7 CPU (yes, they can be found for this price)
    $50 for a name brand micro ATX 1155 mobo (only need one x16 slot, and its small physically)
    $35 for 8 gb ram
    $80 for 2tb hdd (prices are finally getting down near what they used to be for hdds)
    $130 for a radeon 6870, which is MORE than fast enough to game at 1080p

    Huh, would you look at that. We are only up to $495 for all the core components. And those are the prices I as an end buyer can achieve, presumably valve could get them for less in quantity.

    Interesting. So we don't need a case and a power supply? Oops.
    And good luck finding decent low cost parts that will allow to supply this kind of setup with the necessary reliable power and cooling. We're easily at $600+ now for anything that isn't going to guarantee Xbox levels of RROD failure rates.
    Besides no one in their right mind is going to plop down a rig with an ATI 6870 into their living room. That thing is a screamer unless you go with one of the substantially more expensive models with alternative high end cooling.

    ...but it is so hard to understand that people who like a company's products or services generally want said company to make lots of money so that they can continue to make the stuff they like for the foreseeable future?

    Yes, it is hard to understand in this context. Because anyone who seriously believes that Valve will "continue to make the stuff they like for the foreseeable future" if the SteamBox rumor turns out to be true is bound to have a very rude awakening. A SteamBox with a proprietary controller would mean a very drastic change of who and what Valve is.
    You'll see what I mean when we get there. When Valve will start making and funding exclusive games to push their proprietary platform and controller. When Valve will effectively turn into Microsoft and take a dump on their former business (PC gaming or distribution respectively) to promote their new business (Xbox/SteamBox).
    Just wait, see, and suffer. For us "core" PC gamers it will suck. A lot. Mark my words.

    If done right, the SteamBox will sell well and increase Valve's profits substantially. I'd be surprised if they didn't do this right.

    If Valve's profits are your only worry and concern then I don't know what to say except: Nice to meet you, Gabe .

    I actually think this is brilliant, in a way: for practically ZERO investment, you can drop a huge library of *PC* games on the TV.

    For what an xBox costs right now, you could have a more than compitent mid-grade PC hooked up to a TV.

    Honestly? Done right, this could be the second salvo in the battle to keep the PC relevant.

    Not a bad thing at all.

    ^D^

    I knew somewhere in all these posts would be one "positive" post that made sense. +1, totally agree. Not that it couldn't go wrong...of course it could, but I don't see what is wrong with Valve testing the waters. Done wrong, its forgotten like the Nintendo Power Glove and Atari Jaguar, done right....it could be pretty damn cool.


    Are you crazy? Where did that make any sense? Are people going to start playing PC games on the couch with keyboard and mouse? Yeah? Really?
    Of course not. This is not a question of "done right". It's a question of no matter how they do it, it will still end up being just another console. Which means that it might be the last "salvo" in the battle to render the PC completely irrelevant.

    Though I have no idea in general where y'all are getting the crazy idea from that Valve are the keepers and saviors of the PC. Starting with HL2 Orange Box their own games have become ever more consolized and Steam is PC-exclusive only because it has to be. I bet Valve would offer console games or services on Steam in a heartbeat if MS and Sony wanted to cooperate with Valve on that level.
    Anyway, if they really enter the console market with a SteamBox the PC will suffer more greatly than you can possibly imagine. Bwwwahahahahaaaa

    If they really cancelled it I'd shrug and move on. The last must have id game was Q3A and that was about a decade ago. id has become obsolete. Cancel Doom 4 all you want. Who gives a fuck?
