The Geekbox: Episode 185

Guest listener David Barabe (the guy who wrote that one awesome iTunes review that we loved on quite a few episodes ago — it was the one that got all of our details cheerfully and comically wrong, and I can’t even find it right now) joins us to talk about PAX, Steam on your TV, and other such things.

  1. Some guy says:

    Ryan is half right, the point of big picture is really not to simplify the process of putting a PC on a big screen, no matter what the interface is you have to do certain things. The point is to allow for people to use their controller to play games and also not have to squint and read the text on steam and navigate a mouse driven interface from that distance. There are some games that work better with a controller and so this is for the people who feel they want that experience. It allows them to use their PC version of a game like a console, instead of a 360/PS3 version they now get the most of the time superior PC version with that same experience.

    As far as them making a console, he’s right, they have already said they are working on hardware. This is their test for that, a couch user friendly interface which will come with their standardized piece of hardware, like any other console, but with Steam instead.

    OMFG Higgins is such a fucking clueless twat sometimes. Fuck I literally felt like screaming listening to this episode. This is one of those times that I wish I could harm people over the Internet

    Thanks!
