Where can I find that Gabe Newell Podcast about the Steam Box?

Nerdist

Scroll down to episode 306 and 307.

Download PodCast app and then add TheNerdist channel. I listen to their podcasts during my work commutes.

It was about 2weeks ago. Really awesome stuff.

I'm saying right now

so you can buy a machine that will antiquated in 6 months when the new one is released for $250?
doesnt that blow up your value argument?

eta: to be clear thats equivalent to someone purchasing a windows xp machine knowing full well support for xp will end shortly

My point was that certain games like UC3 are tailored to the specific console, and I made a point that I didn't think the graphics of UC3 could be reached on $250 self built PC because PC games are not tailored to certain hardware.

BA threw out some hardware that he thought could run something like that for less than $250.

and if you want to have a fair discussion stick to games available on all 3 platforms - xbox, ps, and pc.

Any game built on a $250 PC or console would be gimped. No one is arguing otherwise.

Why, I have a PS3?

To be fair uc3 is probably the best console video game as far as graphics go to this point. That being said, it is still not as graphically demanding as the HD mods for the PC version of Skyrim.

I gave him a couple parts, that could run the HD PC version of Skyrim with all the mods. So I am very confident that computer for 250 dollars could play Uncharted 3

Im not sure you know what type of performance you can get out of a 250 system.

Yes, you could achieve better performance for under 200bucks than I think the next gen consoles will even provide. Maybe 5yrs from now when coding for said consoles has improved, but even then I still do not see it.

Not sure you can have a valid argument if you have not experienced all platforms, sorry.

I have, like I said I used to build my own PCs.

high end graphics are great, but for the price and ease at this point in my life graphics are more than fine on consoles and for the price.

You apparently missed the post where I called myself an idiot for being wrong.

ETA:

Not to mention I am specifically speaking about how I think (although I was incorrect) the PS3 is better value for the price. Why can't I bring up a PS3 specific game?

just did a server upgrade from 08 to 2012 standard.

scared the shite out of me when the login screen first appeared and its all w8 stuff - thought i was gonna have to deal with tiles

turns out its just server 08 with a w8 skin - though they did replace the traditional start button with a hidden tile like start menu

because it invalidates your argument when you use a benchmark that cannot be evenly applied to all test subjects

aint my server
yeah i was scared to death when it first came up though - thought M$ had really lost their minds.
so far it appears to just be a skin though for continuity purposes with W8
there is no tile/app drawer screen - boots to login screen then straight to desktop

BA was able to "evenly apply" it when he gave me parts that he thought could play the game.
