So because I prefer XBox, I'm a lunatic? I just think it's better. And if $35 /yr is an insanely high cost you shouldn't own a gaming system to begin with.
can you elaborate on how xbox360 is directly competing with steam.
I believe he is referencing the "Steam Box" which is rumored to be coming out this year?
that's great and all, but we're talking about xbox360 and ps3, which are out right now and have been out the past 6+ years.
I understand that, but he must somehow find any angle to rant about the INSANELY HIGH COST! D:
heh, that's funny too if those prices on the links are indicative at all of the initial cost of the steambox, if that is what he was referring to.
If that's the price, it won't sell. Can build faster PC for less money and just plug it into the TV and you can even use Windows and not be limited to Linux ports over Steam.
Let's wait until the Steam 'console' actually appears before trying to compare it to anything.
We can compare the upcoming Sony and MS systems because we have plenty of existing things to judge it on.
Outstanding forumming there.
Try again, but this time don't ignore this bit:
Wow, buble gum, really?
Just out of curiosity, are you a time traveller
Can you tell us what the monthly price of Steam on the "Steam Box" and the price of XBLG on the "Nex Gen Xbox" will be? I'm assuming that you believe that there will be "no charge" on Steam? Those Valve guys just give things away becuase they are so good hearted
Steam was released in 2003 and Xbox Live was released in 2002.
Once again, Steam Box hasn't existed anywhere yet. Sony and MS's iterations have been around for over a decade.
I may have bought Arkham City for £5 in the Steam sale, but I still need a system to play it on.
Something that Valve don't provide.
They are different services.
comparing xbl to ps+ is comparing apples to orangse, and now xbl is being compared to steam?
thats like comparing apples to toyotas.
but that's what the net is for, call people names that don't like what you do, feel no matter what argument they have that your right.. if we had to think logically, talk like the guy on the other side of the screen is in the same room.. bah what fun would that be?
Has there been any real announcements as to what the Steam Box will be and what services it will offer? If not, there is no comparison. XBL is real and Steam Box is vaporware as of right now. I'm sure it will come boxed with a copy of HL3.
Sounds like Gamespot should stop being read.
From Microsoft. Xbox Live has never been free.
The Veyron and the Vette are both luxury cars.
Xbox Live and Steam are not the same thing.
that is where you are wrong.
you don't need ps+ to play games online on the ps3. you need xbox live gold to play online on xbox360.
you don't buy ps+ because you want to play games online. you do buy xbox live gold because you want to play games online.
and yeah, xbox live has been around way before the xbox 360 was even a concept.
next time when you talk about things for the first time, you should do a little bit of research.
I told a few friends last night I didn't renew my xbox live gold and they simply couldn't wrap their brains around it.
I asked them the last time we played a game online with each other. The answer was "well never I usually come over and we system link, but it's only 50 bucks..."
mine expired the 13th of this month. i haven't renewed it yet. i'm sure next time i want to play a game online though i'll grab a year card and go to town. just been busy with other stuff but am almost done with that, and will be back online whooping up on some ssf4ae on the 10' screen!
