But again this is all wild speculation and it's funny how far people are willing to make predictions using totally incomplete data. Reminds me of this:
But at least Ballmer knew the initial price and a basic idea of it's capabilities. We don't know even know that much. It's like me saying Windows 9 will be a failure.
There is a lot of buzz around this product. The fact that there are people that are going to such absurd and unusual lengths to spread negativity about this product without knowing anything about it.. that this thread is 5 pages long is interesting in its own right. When I see lots of people talking about something, either dismissive or not, it personally increases my own desire to understand the product. It signals to me that this thing is has a good chance to be a "Big Deal", assuming Valve doesn't f**k it up somehow. We can't know.
