I know some people, including me, were excited about a more 'open' access console system, or at least one that supports java like approach in the Ouya. But I think this has potential to be far greater in the long term. And while Steam still is still the 'gatekeeper' and isn't as open as say iOS or Android stores are. It does mark a potentially new highly viable source for games to be deployed with consoles, outside of currently available environments, and since it'd be running a variation of linux. I would expect some java support, or the ability to deploy a bunlded one with it, or at the very least, the ability to deploy AoT to it directly or some variation of it.
What is everyones thoughts on it?
Good? Bad? Hate the controller? Interested to try it out?
I am just happy that Steam/Valve is a big enough company and influence that they could bring some real support to Linux for games. Also having a potentially better PC/livingroom experience.
