cant really see the point my self what with average tv specs being useless for gameing or they making some type of console pc tv hybrid errr does ms know
meh gonna totally be cable/sattelite and I'm using hd over the airwaves.
besides my server is linked to my tv anyways and i can run steam on it all day long.
I was hoping for something along the lines of "The TV itself can run Steam, play games (with some beefy internal hardware), etc."
i was hoping for an onlive type service with no lag or distortion
the mac steam? what can you actually do with it? allot of the games on steam are windows only right?
The concept is escoteric but it is real.
according to the steam mac store, there are 172 games for mac, so presumably, mac owners could potentially play 172 games on their macs or tvs.
I'd like to know how it will be implemented onlive type service is all I can think of.
But I would much rather see steam on PS3 and Xbox 360
that would be very useful, i didnt realise there was that many mac compatable titles
Think Windows Media Center, but with Steam.
they sell games not films or tunes and you def cant play games just on my sony bravia
Alright, more of the story:
I bet since Onlive is doing bad/good STEAM is looking to take over what they setup
what an effin evolution lmao
ive been pc gamein just fine on a 32" bravia for a year without such big screen bollox their bringin nowt my tv hasnt seen before then oooooh except gamepad menus haha the dicks
bet you have to start it with a mouse lmao
just realised what with internet enabled tv's this may be like onlive but running over lan instead of internet so no lag problems
video encoded by steam overlay and sent to tv, much like the screen shot feature but as video
Dont support TV, SUPPORT LINUX NATIVELY!
more people own tv's then use linux - for a commercial company the choice is obvious
also Linux doesn't natively support many games so what would they sell
Why not? Linux has a massive user base. I ONLY use Windows cos of compatibility. If Ubuntu was more supported, i'd sell Windows in a heart beat.
More people might own TVs, but how many know about Steam compared to how many Linux users that know of Steam. Why support Mac and not Linux.
i already said - what would they sell, if none of the games run native why does steam need to be
