I think I understand now why its taken so long for "next gen" consoles to be announced.
It just really looks like these companies had no idea what direction they wanted to go. They're going to be forever stuck in the dilemma of trying to make something that's affordable while at the same time lasts awhile technologically.
To all the people saying steam requires people to be online, people that use PC's have been used to this for a long time and there is generally an older crowd using them. The issue with the xbox is that we're talking about a console kids will be opening on christmas and not able to use. It's about the console space being always on which is something that has never been required before. You can't just brush it off as not a big deal by comparing it to steam. Apples and oranges.
