So the year has come. A new generation of gaming.
The Wii-U is out. Soon to be released the Playstation 4, Xbox 720 and my MOST anticipated the Steambox. All will be released this year FALL 2013. Honestly, I am getting bored of playing COD BO2 every single day and I am interested in preparing myself to broadened my horizon with fellow U&V members.

-The Wii-U userbase as of right now isn't that big enough to play a mix of KIll confirm, TDM, and hardpoint.

-Just a little bit of info: Playstation 4, Xbox 720, Steambox will most likely sell for $399 minimum.

*Most of you know about PS4, Xbox 720, BUT NOT Steambox.

What is Steambox?

Well Valve corporation (makers of Half life, Portal, Left 4 Dead) is working on a console-style PC designed to work through a television rather than a computer monitor. Just like xbox has "xbox live," Playstation has "playstation network," and "Nintendo network," well Steambox has "STEAM."

As of December 2012, there are over 1860 games available through Steam, and 54 million active user accounts. As of January 2013, Steam has seen over 6.6 million concurrent players. Steam has an estimated 50–70% share of the digital distribution market for video games.

***You can buy games on Steam at a DISCOUNTED price. Majority of third party games will be released for STEAMBOX. There are games for $5,$10,$20, $50, $60.

**What makes Steam so special?
First of all ITS FREE online service like Nintendo network. One of the reasons why many CONSOLE players do not know about Steam its because PC is their main platform, BUT Valve will release their own console this year. It would be dedicated to running Steam to allow players to launch games, media, and other functions that the client already provides.

*****Which now leads to the main question...What will you guys be getting? What are some of your plans? Just stick with ONE console only? or maybe two consoles?

For me Wii-U & Steambox combo is celebrate

The clan and I have been on this road many times before. But the family has decided to keep this for the wii/wiiu.

I also have Steam on my PC & have a few games there I've bought. It is a pretty cool service & I had no idea they were bringing out their own console! I'll hafta check that out.

Meantime, we indeed will be staying with the Wii & Wii-u only. If we did branch out (& we might someday), it would be the xbox &/or PS3 route. I know pretty much every member in U&V & the PC isn't the "chosen" platform by 95% of our members. It's just the way it is.

I appreciate your contributing ideas Kepto. I really do. I'm sorry if my answer isn't necessarily what you wanted to hear or agree with, but it is what it is.

Well I did say Wii-U / Steambox. Its not like "i am leaving." Just stretching.

**It would be even better if COD had "match making system" like clan vs clan. But they dont.

Just beating noobs all day is teabag =(
..and so many people already hit Max prestige.

Though initially developed for use on Microsoft Windows, the client has expanded to include OS X and Linux versions.

Steambox will have Linux installed. It WONT be a closed console either. Which means you can install windows if you want to.

*Their Anti cheat system is phenomenal.

I would get this. But at this point even with all the consoles coming out. My Wii U will be my primary console hands down. Very Happy

Wii U is definitely going to be my primary. PS4 will probably be my secondary depending on what exclusives they have.

Sony definitely has exclusives.....but their AAA has been somewhat of a lackluster with lower than expected ratings.

God of War
Battle Royal
Killzone (low sales)
Resistance (discontinued)
Crash bandicoot (multiplatform now)
Twisted Metal

*Grand Turismo will release on PS3.

*Most importantly NO POINT of getting Killzone when you have DESTINY coming........the "makers" of HALO.
