See, the whole "stream pc games including steam" makes me wonder why steam is even getting into the console game. Why not just strike a deal to let the big guns use steam on their next consoles?


This one does look cool though. Looks like it might even implement some sort of duel screen stuff like the WU... maybe. Anyway this is gonna be a hell of a year.

Ah I got it backwards then. Yea definitely a result of that.


Generations was awesome. But what I mean by WHORE! is sonic n Mario Olympic Games and smash bros and whatever mashup he made an appearance in.

If Sega created a Saturn esque console w that perfect controller I'm all in.
