I love the direction Valve is going with their steambox and steam os. It's great and I hope it works out, BUT, people act like this is the only way to hook up or have a gaming pc in your living room and a way to play pc games on a couch, like we're treading new ground. So many times I see people giving reasons as to why they don't game on pc and one that comes up the most is that they can't kick back on the couch with a controller, they can't have their tv hooked up to their computer and it just baffles me that now all of a sudden, it's a big deal and people are rushing to capitalize off of it and make it a thing.

Like I said, I think it's great this is turning into a bigger thing but it has been a thing for quite some time and I don't understand why people are just now getting to it or make up bullshit excuses for it unless there is some direct device to handle the problem for them.
