GS News - Steam Machine images appear, Half-Life 3 would not be exclusive

Valve state that they won’t make exclusive games for Steam OS while also releasing images for their Steam Machine prototypes, and Infinity Ward attempts to ease concerns over CoD: Ghosts being only 720p on Xbox One.

If the Steam Machine controller really does play that well, it might actually be successful.

Valve isn't dumb enough to do exclusives. We aren't talking about Nintendo here...

Call of Duty: Dogs makes a lot of sense actually. I mean, it's the one with the dog, right? They've made that a selling point, so why not. Perfect informal name anyhow. Playing CoD: Dogs on Xbone. :)

Not getting Call Of POOPIE but yeah you have to be nuts not to get it on PS4 if you are getting both consoles.

I am all for CoD DOG getting his own game.


Btw the sound volume was slightly off in the video. Music was too loud and Jess was too quiet. Could barely hear what she said.

ha ha ha 720p on the most expensive next gen console. Steam seems to get it right a costumizable console is what the market needs, if steam abolishes the monthly subscription nonsense i will be purchasing it.

Loved the bit at the end Jess

If I do play COD Ghosts it will be on PC when it's released. 

Anything valve does seems to be a winner. I think the steam box will be great

Valve doesn't care about exclusives on there system they just want everyone to play the great games being made no matter what system you own.

CoD Ghost XBOX 1 all the way. Its all about the network, and live is hands down a better network.

Jess McDonald in my opinion used to be a 6/10, nowadays I think she's an 8. Either she got cuter, or I've just been watching this show too much.

WHO on earth told Microsoft, Sony and Valve that consoles have to look ugly?? I just don't get it!! Why are consoles getting uglier with every generation? >.>


Consoles used to be made of wood, metal and had the most awesome shapes. Now they look like freaking VCRs. I want something for the living room, not something I would rather hide in the back.

@McGuirex3 It depends on screen size for me. On my titchy 20 inch in my bedroom standard def looks fine e.g. DVDs or something. HD look flawless but when you are just watching a TV program or something it makes next to no difference.

HD on my 32 inch TV in the living room looks flawless also but standard starts to look pretty shabby in comparison. Because of the size.

But unless you put two games right next to one another on two identical screens you aren't going to notice a difference. Unless you play with your nose against the display that is. Or have some way of flicking between the two really quickly which most normal people don't.

@McGuirex3 But it is, at least when it comes to video games...unless your screen is made of shit.

@diabolik_023 ALL exclusives are anti-consumer nonsense to help push consoles onto people that wouldn't otherwise buy them.  Assuming you don't represent a console manufacturer and are a consumer like the rest of us, why on earth would you suggest such a thing?

I blame the schools........

@diabolik_023 i agree.

half life 3 steambox exclusive = 35 million counterstrike players who will finally upgrade from a 9800gt = win for steam and pc gamers in general

@mystic_knight WTF?! Mystic_Knight I remember you as a mod in the 72hr stream but Jesus Christ!! Are you a Professional Model?? (I would not be surprised). Someone get this woman in FRONT of the camera

@maddog724 I agree right now live is better, but with next gen and sony making people pay for online they should be able to put that money towards getting the PSN network up to par with Xbox Live. I don't think we will be able to tell the difference between the networks soon.

@buccomatic @diabolik_023 I disagree. Like many, I have been patiently awaiting the release of Episode 3 / HL3, however I won't buy a console for a single game or any exclusivity.

To make it exclusive, is to go against every intention Valve has demonstrated about the Steam Machine being open to mod/hack etc.
