The Valve Console will Severely cut Microsoft’s Next Generation Console and game Sales
 

 
Furious Francis over at*Player Essence*has written an interesting article on how Valve’s Steam box could possibly affect Microsoft and Sony next gen consoles. Here’s a snippet:” Gabe Newell has announced that Valve will be jumping into the console wars next year, with console built for living rooms. This machine is to directly challenge Microsoft and Sony’s next generation consoles. With Valve creating a console, there will be major repercussions throughout the industry. Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo will all be affected one way or another. We think that Microsoft will ultimately lose the most sales for a variety of reasons”

Really wouldn't change much for Nintendo or Sony too be honest. They have a well established first party lineup that would make people still buy their consoles. On top of that Nintendo is the only one offering a different way of playing that will have people buying their consoles. Microsoft better hope and pray that this Steam box is fake though.

If M$ is the only one with a paid online service by then, i can see it. Live had its great run, but they should think about making Live free considering how many ads are on the service. Their user base will also be more likely to stay.

By next gen, if ps4 has party chat & valve puts out the kind of quality they are known for w/free steam online, M$ takes the biggest hit.

Now get off your a.ss and start making 1st party titles again.

If Valve has a console marketplace like they do on Steam, it's game over. Nobody will be able to compete with them.

Steam has a model similar to Xbox Live in the consumer's eyes. All the real advantages are for developers and small publishers. I'm not sure how Valve can effectively market this to the masses.

Microsoft filled a gaming void that wasn't left by anyone in particular. The whole social gaming idea was the next step in console evolution. Maybe Steam believes cheap development for high quality titles is the next step for home gaming. I do want a platform for games like Minecraft, Shadow Complex, and Sonic CD, but would it be that much better than what we have already?

Except you pay for Xbox Live. I'm not saying which is better because that is all opinion, but if both are equal as far as quality, the consumer is always going to pick the cheaper of the 2. The reason Live is widely accepted over PSN is because Live is better. That is why people are willing to pay for it. Now, if Valve can equal what Live is doing, and do it cheaper, look out.

I'm not sure what I'd like better to see, the look on the faces of the kids seeing real gaming or the look on my face when the celebratory Steam sale Valve will hold when it launches...

The only threat Sony has to the sales of its next console is Sony itself.

Valve is going to give MS and Sony the kick in the a.ss they need.

MS needs to go free with live and develop more exclusives. Something other then Halo, Forza and Gears.

Sony needs to get their online sh*t together. They'll still have exclusives to help their console but they better stop some new franchises with the PS4 like they did the PS3.

If Valve launches with an exclusive like Half Life 3.... that'll be a good start to move consoles.
