It's going to of course operate through Steam, which is kind of exciting for me because I have friends who are interested in PC gaming but aren't comfortable with the quirks of PC gaming (for example, trying to get a Rockstar port to even run). I think Valve could really have an edge on the competition if they allow their Steambox to be upgradable some way, at least the GPU. By mid-cycle, the Steambox would leave the competition in the dust technically if one could upgrade to a new video card. One question I have is what the hell are they talking about regarding "PCs designed to work with your TV right out of the gate"? Plug an HDMI cable into your PC and TV. It already works right out of the gate. It's not like someone needs to take a soldering gun and install two fists full of wiring to get a PC to operate on a television. It seems like using a PC on a TV/ home theater is one of the great undiscovered mysteries for most gamers along with using a wireless kb/m on a TV tray from the couch (How does AKS do it?!? It's impossible!).
