Re: The purpose of Steam machines is to attract console players
Saying Steam has hundreds of games while XB has only a few is a bit silly, because there are hundreds if not thousands of companies already working on XB games. And Steam games are generally not as big or fancy. Remember that indie games are sold on both XB and PS so there will be a glut of those on top of the big-name games.
Besides if number of games is the important issue, you'd go for a PS3 or 360 which have far more titles than Steam and are still getting new games.
