So what does this mean for all the hardcore PC gamers? Would you still rather sit at your computer desk and mouse/keyboard through your games, or relax on the couch like a normal person?
It's huge for people in the middle because steam games can be a lot cheaper. BL2 with the season pass was 20 bucks this summer, cheapest it has been for the 360 all together I think is 70. Plus the Steam box can advance/become a lot cheaper as time goes on since it's going to be largely a basic set of specs and anyone can make them VS Sony/Microsoft who still charge 200 dollars for systems based on mid 2000's hardware, and then another 100 bucks to add in a hard drive that is so tiny you can't even buy them that small anymore.
