WoW is factored on so many things it should play WoW fine depending on resolution, detail, add ons, etc etc.

Re: Prototype Steam Machines

I don't get why they focus so much on having PC gamers use a controller when we already have the best input method available in the mouse and keyboard.

Keyboard and mouse don't lend themselves well to playing from a couch. That's one of the major points of the steam machine.

Re: Prototype Steam Machines

A gaming controller may suck for FPS games and Strategy-based games, but beats the standard mouse+keyboard for most other gametypes. Diablo being a good example.

also, its easier to program games for consoles, or so they say. Lets see how well the developers get to know the Linux based OS that Steambox will use.
