PS4 is essentially a Steam Box

It was funny to hear how Steam Boxes were such a bad idea and all the nay saying when PS4 is essentially a Steam Box.

With the way tech works there will be Steam Boxes with more capability, smaller size and lower price than PS4 either this year or next- probably bigger library too. Who silly is it now? I hope Vive really kicks things off for them.

Steam Box is slower than PC and can’t do anything but play games.
There won’t be much value in it for a while.
Today you can buy a cheap PC that plays games faster and also runs Windows and Linux (if you install Virtual Box on it).

Right on all counts of course, but still.
