Jesus, why are we taking his word for it?

Are we?



Makes sense both don't feel much like making games anymore and simply want to run a store :p

Now if the Valve Index comes to XSX with half life Alyx and Boneworks, that will peek my interest greatly. It will need some more games to justify that price tag though.

but their quick abandonment of Steam Link after I bought it ticked me off,

Why? It still works, doesn't it? They didn't stop supporting that hardware, they just stopped selling the hardware when it came redundant, since a lot of other devices can do the job (iOS, Android, Raspberry Pis and many Smart TVs can run the Steam-Link-App).

I believe they stopped issuing software updates and bug fixes when they discontinued it. It was a sudden drop in performance for me around when they discontinued it. That's pretty coincidental.

Fanboys don't give (Actual) reasons to own a console. That's why they are fanboys. They speak on knowledge they no nothing about aside from trying to convince others based off brand loyalty. Gabe is a neutral customer to both brands and probably could care less out of either of them however this question is more to do with if he had to choose..

His sole focus is PC gaming.

Well Gabe gives no reason at all. Hes obviously not neutral. He hated the PS3 as well at first. Im sure he will come out at a PS5 event looking like a hostage again after a few years when he need Sony to sell his products though. 

You sound like you're already coming from a specific camp yourself, that you'd cite Gabe as some form of derogatory "enemy".

He doesn't ened Sony to sell what he's making on Steam. He's been doing fine for years now.

Who the H is that? Whoever it is, he looks completely at ease while speaking in front of an audience.

That sounds a bit dramatic, but he obviously has something against Sony. 

I dont really know why we are still talking about that though. All I said is that he sounds butthurt pretty much. I dont really care. I just thought the guy was more articulate and had learned a thing or two after the whole PS3 thing. Obviously not.
