Comment Re:SteamOS (Score 1) 313

Seems like a halfway solution from locally hosting and streaming the way Onlive did it. Steam already does achievements & progress syncing in some games but it'll be awesome when/if you'll be able to pause the game, then pic it up from your mobile device from the exact same spot and graphically reduced if required.

Yeah the pricepoint blows and none of this will likely happen. There's a number of 3rd party controllres but the problem is that they don't have official support so they're not in every game. If Apple atleast had a standard/universal controller support it would be awesome. If Apple they did the wiimote thing where it's a remote control for the TV but you could use it as a gampead - ah, we can dream, heh.

Comment Apple & Gaming (Score 1) 191

Apple seems to hate gaming. If they just released a solid bluetooth gamepad for Apple TV & iPads they could destroy consoles. What would you rather do: 1) Buy your kid an expensive console with $60 games. 2) Buy your kid a ton of $1 app style games with a system you may already own. Mind you, the production quality of AAA $60 games is a huge step up but some of them app games are pretty damn good for $1.
