    Welcome back Zoe… not like you really left anyway lol!

    An Alienware console… expensive concept… but probably well worth it.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I think the OS will be far more important than the hardware when it comes to the Steam Machines.

    • VampyricSquirrel Monk

      Very true… but it’ll be Linux based… and probably the most stable console around… other than the WiiU XD

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I’ve never had problems with stability on my PC, what’ll make or break it for me is whether or not all my games can run on it.

        • VampyricSquirrel Monk

          lol! My PC’s never remain stable for long… but then I think I’m a bit hard on my OS’.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            My PC is now 3 years old, never reloaded, it’s only blue screened twice – both times while playing Max Payne 3, so I blame a shitty port for that, not the PC heh.

    Is Origin PC related to the EA’s Origin?

    • Mark Treloar

      No, and they suck. They no longer use AMD.

    welcom back Zoe!

    Alienware and SteamOS? All I hear is “overly expensive open source gaming PC/laptops”

    • VampyricSquirrel Monk

      Pretty much

  • Unavengedavo(aka. MadeYouLook)

    The whole idea of Linux gaming finally being a reality isn’t all that it is cracked up to be, and I was one of the people that were excited about the prospect. There are some major companies on that list, but where are the game developers and publishers? We need to see them adopt it as well!

    • Rags

      Agree, for Steam OS to succeed, they need EPIC, DICE and Crytek onboard at the very least.

  • Galbedir

    I have faith in Valve when it comes to design and their products. They
    definitely know what their doing in this business. Most of their games
    are brilliant, and Steam in my opinion is one of the best things around
    if you have a good internet connection. Im not saying the Steambox is
    going to take away or convert any of the console fanboys, however it
    will definitely be an awesome gadget to have if you have the money for
    it.

    Uh oh.. Gigabyte is one of the partners? Steambox just became Failbox.

    • Gareth L (That Guy)

      So one of the 12 partners makes the entire idea a fail?

      • iAmWeasel

        When your Gigabyte motherboard or GPU dies within 18 months then you will agree with me. *sets timer*

        • Gareth L (That Guy)

          I’m now convinced that you don’t know what a partner is. They’re not making every Steambox with a Gigabyte board, if you don’t buy a Gigabyte-made Steambox then you’ll be fine.

    Underpowered and overpriced will be the theme of the Steam Machine.

  • Gr8_Balls_o_Fire

    What exactly is a Steam Machine? I’m new to this
