No I don't. I don't have to prove anything in this discussion, because I'm posting on an Internet message board and voicing my opinion.
That is kind of weak.
It is true that there is no strict necessity to prove anything, but it is also true that without that support, your opinion is unfounded and flawed.
You could go buy yourself an XBox for every room of the house, and hey, it's your money, you can do that. I'm still aloud to post on the Internet that it seems excessive and stupid.
I never said you weren't allowed to do so. I just pointed out that your logic and thus your point of view is faulty.
As far as whether streaming PC games to your XBox is a good idea, my guess is that the experience won't be great for twitch games, but if it's a good enough experience for you, then again, by all means, have at
Agreed. Again, that is why I would prefer the HDMI-over-ethernet solution. I'm pretty sure however that in its current state, that is far too big a hassle for most consumers.
I'm not going to be an asshole and claim that you have to prove that's the best choice for everybody.
Nice implicit ad hominem. Also: straw man. I never said that it was the best choice for everybody. I argued it was an adequate solution for some people.
At the same time, if what you really want is a method to stream your Steam games to your TV over your home network through a set-top box, I would guess that there are cheaper solutions than the XBox.
Agreed. At $50, the Steam Link doesn't even compete with the $350 Xbox One for that specific purpose. It is severely limited, though. There are generic streaming devices for $100 out there which would be preferable. I do think that when people are faced with a decision between a Playstation and an Xbox, the streaming capabilities of the Xbox could influence their choice significantly.
