Cool story bro.

Right un brah, nice, nice.

Valve is only good for Steam sales, they don't make games anymore.

HL2 won game of the decade. Not from GS, obviously, but it did. Just saying

It went multi plat a year later? NEXT.

Then TLOU isn't exclusive either . According to SW guide , there is no such thing as Sony exclusive . One platform = Exclusive , otherwise it isn't .

Don't know how it is related to topic though . Don't have anything to say about it .? If you wanna discuss GOTYs , make thread about it .

TLoU and TLoU:R are not the same game so they're both exclusives.

Yeah , it's like saying ; Witcher 2 is still PC exclusive because Xbox 360 got Enhanced Edition , and PC have both Enhanced Edition as well as original game . So , Enhanced Edition is multiplatorm , and Witcher 2 is PC exclusive .

Exactamundo! You can add Crysis to that list as well, consoles got a version that uses a different engine, has less levels, different sound effects, different suit powers/options and barely any vegetation, thus it's not the same game.

Except TLOU:R uses same engine and game assets , just few minor tweaks here and there (Crysis & Witcher case is whole different story but still not exclusives)

Hard to accept , I know . But the game looks that bad compared to PC .

This was mentioned a while back. Seems like a perfectly logical extension.

The idea of crowd funded/greenlight moves on steam is very exciting.

I thought it was a lie, until I experienced it for myself and now can honestly CONFIRM it. Plus even the devs say it has lighting not found on any other platform including PC.

LOL, go find the video that compares the 360 to pc maxed. There's even missing NPC's on screen. But nobody calls TW2 exclusives, enhanced or not, it's multiplat.

The witcher 1 is pc exclusive.

Their final struggle is indeed tough. Not like there is any other way around it. And the Big three competitors of Steam OS is actually Microsoft, Apple, and Google. Steam is destined to be doomed. But, I respect their effort to stay alive. Sadly with my limited imagination, I cannot picture a way out for them.

Movies and music (something that all phones, tablets, and even computers can already do) will kill consoles? lol, okay.

What's the point in making new consoles if you can't add any features? Eventually they're gonna have to add music and movies to them and they'll just be half-assed PC's that make you pay for online with subscriptions. Might as well go backwards and use the Gamecube or a PS2 if we want to keep consoles.

Please Valve just make more great games again. That's all we really want from you.

#85 Posted by AmazonAngry (945 posts) -

So steam is finally going to be able to do what consoles have done for years?

Oh valve...always playing catchup.

Well, maybe pc can nab a movie of the year out of this. Lord knows they cant with games.

Plus, with the record breaking preorder numbers Destiny has been pulling, pc is about to become a distant memory.

..on a PC.

..and herms are getting excited.

#88 Posted by GlassdoorGamer (17 posts) -

All Valve is doing is making a customizable console OS with their digital game store. Are they trying to break into the console segment? If so, they have the wrong philosophy.

Console gamers don't like mass hardware choice. They want something that standard and ready out of the box. The only customizing that flies in this world is expanded hard-drives/expansion memory, different colours of consoles, and additional peripherals.

#89 Posted by Gaming-Planet (14022 posts) -

Well, technically pc can already do this with the need of steam.

There was a leak by Steam DB that Steam may be planning to offer new services to Steam such as movies, tv shows, videos and music, the latter is already confirmed as we all know.

So....... The killing blow to consoles is what the Xbox One tried to do before it was shut down because Gamers told MS to F-Off with that idea? You're a fake boy aren't you.....

Yep this will kill consoles as much as that steam box killed consoles.

#92 Posted by handssss (1836 posts) -

Valve was only ever relevant to console gamers when Turtle Rock made them a great co-op zombie game. That ship has sailed and nobody gives a shit about them anymore except for the same old PC gamers that would worship Gaben's turds and hype ANYTHING affiliated to Valve.

No, but it will have better games, which for some of us is a plus.

So consoles ARE worth owning as I have stated.

No, having worse games does not make consoles worth owning.

Consoles are at the bottom of the barrel, PC is all around the barrel. :P

@parkurtommo: I've never once thought of the peripheral offering on any of my gaming platforms from atari to ps4 to my gaming pc as the main draw and innovation of this hobby. This gen, like every other will once again be remembered and talked about among people in the know for it games...

boasting about adding netflix is like throwing a party because the Sunday paper had a classified section.

Not really. The threads console fans make are just copy and paste articles. Thread turns into a shit slinging storm and gets locked. Atleast here the OP TYPED something to go along with his link.

That's why PC shouldn't be only platform, good point.
