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
