For those of you who already have a nextgen console (xbone or ps4 doesn't matter i guess wii u too for those who think that it should be considered) will you be getting a second nextgen console or a steambox? It's out now that they will be starting at $500 for performance and hardware superior to that of the nextgen consoles. They will be small form factors. Come with a controller. And fit nicely under your tv or wherever you want to put it.
I assume consolites who do not have nextgen consoles yet will go ahead and get the console of their choice as they should. So if you already have a next gen console and are the manticore (read true gamer imo) type what do you go for. A PSBone or a shiny new steambox to dive into the refreshing waters the Master Race has been bathing in all this time?
You have access to mod support. You don't have to purchase yet another online subscription. You have access to steam sales. You have access to even more peripherals (occulus rift anyone?). All your games will be 1080 at 60fps. You will be able to play multiplats in their true form. Would all these things and many more be more appealing to you than a second console
As a side note if you already have a gaming rig and nextgen console obviously this isn't directed at you. For instance I probably wont get a steambox since I have a rig so I'm in the market for a PSBone. But for those console only manticores who were planning on buying two systems anyway, I'm wondering if the steambox will appeal to you because it seems like you are one of the targeted demographics.
