I'm an enabler...based on how many games I buy during Steam sales. It's gotten so bad that I buy games now just to horde them and give them away to my friends unexpectedly. I gave Vegetto a copy of The Walking Dead a few weeks ago.

You see how nobody is talking about this anymore? That's what I mean, absolutely no buzz at all for this. What are they doing over there?

Unlike your 'answer to the Steambox' GameStick, which is on the front cover of every news site and still being talked about right now?

And no one's talking about it because what is there to talk about, exactly? Nothing has been unveiled. Let Valve work on it in peace, you'll get your chance to hate on it whenever they actually show it off.

Take your own advice.

Also, no one is really invesitgating the Piston since Gabe said that it's not the Steambox they are working on. That one is codenamed Bigfoot. Right now, all we have are rumors and promises, nothing concrete.

I will say, though, that by the Piston making a big splash in the news, it's added some confusion within the people who aren't sure what is, and is not, the Steambox. Additionally, Ben Krasnow seems to be flip flopping between when they plan to show the Steambox. One source says it will be presented in 2013, another says there will be no announcements in 2013.

*Noted, I stand by what I said, in the end, we win, but.. I thought it would be interesting to point that out. This is exactly what I meant about how they deal with things like these (hardware development), they really should have said nothing about any of this and leaked info like everybody else.

It's entirely possible that they are trying to figure out a way to get games that normally run on Direct X to run in Linux without much work on the developers part. The success of any kind of modular PC running without Windows will be the catalog of games. At the moment, it's really up to Valve to make it happen, not the developers.

But trying to suggest that the thing is dead in the water because no one is talking about it is a poor point. Not many people are talking about the PS4, XBox3 and even the WiiU. Let's wait until a big show like E3 when we anticipate news to drop before we assume anything.

This is, yet another talking point about 'stuff' they are doing at valve. Apple apparently is a threat to the living room. I still don't understand what is going on over there, but he is still talking about it(stuff they are doing at valve).
