How will SteamOS affect development of Games?
I think that games will become less complex overall, and everything will move toward a console-specific development.

Thank you very much for your thoughts.

May be that they start making more console games to pc + use more a controller in new games + use the Steam Controller for things

The goal of SteamOS is to move the PC into the livingroom gaming like HTPCs and compete with consoles. PC is by definition not a console and thus anyone trying to treat it solely as such is making a development mistake. In order to accomplish this, SteamOS will implement features specifically designed for use in the livingroom; it is however not a console.

The goal of the Steam Controller is to provide a console-like user input interface for PC games, and with the help of SteamOS, striving to become a standard input controller for livingroom gaming on PCs.

This opens up the opportunity for PC games to turn to people who up until now mostly only played console games etc. It makes porting PC games to consoles unnecessary since there is SteamOS. Summarized, for less cost required than by normal means, game developers reach out to more people.

Playing in the livingroom has several advantages over playing on desktops and vice versa. PC games that up until now were Desktop-exclusive, could be improved with quite little effort to be played smoothly in the livingroom. This is a great leap in gaming!

There is an entire forum dedicated to the SteamOS. It would probably be a good idea to ask any other questions there as the developers will be more likely to see it and possibly respond.

Ok and, hello Starving.
