Valve has already said there won't be any exclusives, even if they did try to do HL3 as an exclusive people would play HL3 and then ditch the OS and go back to Windows.

I don't see this as a reason to ditch Windows as a desktop OS and have no interest in PC gaming in the living room.

I'd disagree. wasn't it the case when HL2 required Steam that everybody chose Steam to eventually be the dominant/leading platform for digital distribution? if HL3 was exclusive to SteamOS it could be adopted as a main platform for gamers, and I wouldn't be surprised if Valve made HL3/L4D3 exclusive to Steam Machine/SteamOS. history can repeat itself. they may say there won't be exclusives but things can always change. the only way for mass adoption is for exclusivity rights, and that's what Microsoft is trying to do with Xbox One for digital TV shows and movies.

That's what I've read on the old internet, Valve said no SteamOS exclusives. It's not a replacement desktop OS and I question the number of PC gamers just dieing to play their games in the living room. I'm not.

I see the future more being something like the Rift attached to either a high performance PC or perhaps wirelessly tethered to a high performance android tablet.

At any rate it's going to take much more than a handful of indie developers making games for this Steam console to put a dent in even the adoption rate of the Nintendo WiiU let alone the xbox and playstation market share.

Tablets are nice for consuming content, I would hate to try to be productive on one. I would probably go with a Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 if I had to attempt productivity on one. There's also a rumor of a Galaxy note Pro model with a 12.2" display which might show up in march.

There's been a lot of developers who have left DICE over the past couple of years, perhaps this is the result of a brain drain effect going on. It really doesn't help matters when you have completely brain dead idiots like Daniel Matros, aka zh1nt0 going on twitter and posting "Haven't had time to play bf since november. What's it like?"

What a tool.

BF fans are willing to look past the warts because the core game is fun, when it works. DICE doesn't really have any direct competition, Arma series takes itself too seriously and COD is at the opposite end, Planetside is proof that bigger isn't better or more fun.

As for XP not getting patches for vulnerabilities, why not just use this for protection?

I think keyboard & mouse get in the way of the touchscreen-awesome interface. Just think of the whole screen as one big start button that tucks you in at night.

They should pre-install StartIsBack Plus on their boxes, I think that would be more rebellious of them. I know some do have a "Start Menu" replacement but the ones I've seen are borderline spamware.

Of course China is going to ban this. Anyone who has played through the campaign would expect this. I'm surprised it took this long. You play as US military killing hundreds if not thousands of stupid Chinese soldiers. You help some magically charismatic Chinese pacifist civilian who the Chinese soldiers instantly change sides for without question, with a revolution highly suggested. It's propaganda at its best. If only they'd managed to work in the pollution angle somehow.

Between all the glitches and bugs you can hardly even tell there's a story to the game, and in many levels you're killing Russian soldiers... in China.

At least in multiplayer you can be a Chinese soldier killing stupid American soldiers.

Remember when games came with this stuff without trying to milk more money out of you?

I still have a really cool art book Dynamix put in the Starsiege box, and how about that original binder manual that came with Falcon.

Those were the good ol days

Can't console game developers just put in movement limiters to defeat the use of fast mouse aim?

The PS4 does support mouse and keyboard, you can play Warthunder that way from what I understand. So it's more the developers not supporting it.

Fils-Aime defended his company's policy, stressing that Nintendo will not be bringing Super Mario to Apple's iOS platform anytime soon.

I can bring Super Mario to my Android tablet in a number of ways through emulation.

Nintendo needs to re-think their broken strategy.

I wish the asteroids had movement, colliding with each other and breaking into two or three.

It could be a meta game in itself, clear all the asteroids!
