Meh, not really down with a whole production being done to make fun of someone's religious beliefs. And Mormons are an easy target, I will wait for "The Book of Islam."

@lord_xp: Thanks for the response, I was referring to the price of PS3 games via Gakai.

Hello, I am a PC Gamer but am thinking of getting a PS4. I don't see too many (PS4 exclusives) that really demand my attention. On the other hand, I am very interested in a lot of PS3 games: Heavy Rain, Last of Us, Ni No Kuni and some more. Its my understanding that Gakai will be used to provide access to these games. Unfortunately, details seem to be very scarce. If anyone could help me out:

1) What games will be available and at what cost?

2) When will these games be available?

Thanks.

@fluxwavez: Still seems presumptuous to think its PS4 exclusive. How many Capcom games were PS3 exclusives?

Daylight is on PC and Deep Down hasn't even been confirmed to be more than a tech demo yet alone an exclusive.

I am all for peace, but play with fire and you will get burned.

The Steambox will be a success if they introduce steam to an untapped market of traditionally console only gamers. For that to happen, it needs to unquestionably be priced to compete with consoles. Steam doesn't give a fuck about the box itself, they just want people to use their service to the point where they're invested enough to stay for the foreseeable future. From a business perspective, Valve games are probably such a tiny percentage of total revenue that a HL3 release would be relegated to a blip in a board meeting. I mean, common guys, they take a cut of practically every game sold on the PC. Every single new PC gamer directly contributes to their bottom line growth, full stop.

Does this mean you are with me on this idea? lol. I mean, they will lose revenue on games but the crowd they would bring in by making their games PC-Steam only would be huge and override any losses on their games.

Haha, I guess I didn't really answer your question, but in a way, that was my point. If the Steambox is aggressively priced, a HL3 exclusive would be HUGE, but if it's still $1000, that's isolating a lot of people they're going after and a HL3 exclusive won't matter. They've priced them out of the equation at that point. Also, I really don't think we'll see a console priced Steambox, but I hope they prove me wrong.

Nailed it. Price will be the ultimate factor. But having some Valve exclusives (packaged in even) could tip the scales.

Half-Life is already massive on PC and almost nothing on consoles. It probably wouldn't be a big factor.

Thats actually a good point, they might be better off using Left 4 Dead and maybe a Counter-strike 2.
