Despite the negativity, I find ZDNet’s skepticism to be a positive thing. It’s good to question products that have been given so much media attention and buzz. But I think ZDNet is quite wrong and here’s why. Price shouldn’t be a problem for the simple reason that there will be plenty of choices. Valve isn’t making customers buy one particular Steam Machine over another. Gamers can pick and choose which ones they feel are worth their money. The market will decide which Steam Machines survive over the long run.
