| Gaming Board|| Do you think Xbox is pushing for a Steam model because they are scared of Steam? - stout on 6/19/13 at 10:30 am|
Maybe they don't see PS and Nintendo as much of a threat compared to Steam and the resurgence in PC gaming?
Of course I don't think they have ever really directly competed with Nintendo and neither does the PS. Nintendo has always catered to a different market.
Or maybe they know if they hav...
