So from what I understand this is gonna be a STEAM based system that lets you plug up a controller / keyboard + mouse or whatever you prefer to play your games with and allow you to purchase and play games off the Steam store and onto your TV right? Sweet, that appeals to pc gamers and console gamers who want the PC gaming experience but don't want to deal with the actual PC building. But is this thing gonna give us the option to download and purchase ANY game from the steam store? Including free to play ones like those MMOs? If so I guess this box is expected to beable to run all the high end games on Steam coming out in 2013+2014 with ease?

And those are fantastic deals. But like someone said before, how long will steam keep offering these types of sales? This is all pre console steam box.

With them entering the console market, Sony/MS/Nin will throw a sh*t fit that one of their competitors is selling games cheaper.

Is it realistic once steam box drops?
I can't see Valve alienating their core audience like that. Besides, there's deals on PS3 and Xbox, just not as many and most aren't that deep of a discount. Maybe Sony and M$ will offer better deals for their digital content. That's an easy way to counter. If Sony or Microsoft had those kind of deals (or at least something better than what they have) on digital content I would have never started pc gaming.

I agree, you can stream HDMI wirelessly to your TV now with a simple USB stick. And its 100 dollars for the whole set up. You can basically use your HDTV with your computer. So if your rig is downstairs and your living room is up stairs, you can turn the desktop stream on, navigate to your steam game and play wit your xbox controller.

I actually like how valve is allowing other companies to make their own steambox that are different sizes and specs
allows us to choose which system fits our needs

other prototypes from CES
