today a random thought came to my mind about steam integrating to the portble console market. i know this might be something out there considering how big steam is, but just think of the possibilities. being able to play 1,000+ games anywhere you go seems like it would bring in lots of revenue, i mean what WOULDN'T if it was that strong.
though i know as a fact that no gaming console will be able to support that much so thats why ( if it were to ever happen) they should make it so you can only access so many games by connecting via the interwebs. and even if yur not on the internet you can still access one game by storing it on the steam portable console itself.
even better, when you buy something on this console, it would reflect on every other steam product ( A.K.A. steam machines, steam app on phones, and/or pc steam). so basically this thing will maximize your ways of managing your steam profile. so like if you were to buy borederlands 2 or like skyrim on your portable version or you were to accept an update, you can do it at your workplace and when you get home it would already be downloaded and ready to play. ( oh and ofcourse you can add currency on your portable).
though i'm not going to just spout ideas without thinking of the restrictions. most portable consoles have lower and inferior graphics than its home cousin ( home concoles) so thats why steam can either do 2 things... #1. they can ask the publishers of the games on steam to " modify their released games" more or less to be able to play it on portable consoles. ( for example, steam can modify team fortress 2 to play as the original team fortress while somehow not making it to outdated to the point no one wants to buy it or shrink don't starve to not have generating maps )
#2. they can limit what things you can play on the portable system but not limit what you can buy. ( in other words, you may not be able to play borderlands 2 on your portable system but you can still buy it and it will be sent to your steam acount on your computer or steam machine to download on those systems since they are able to support such a big program and paragraph number 3 shall come into action).
and about being on internet so you can play, all your games will be stored on your own personal "server' which when it gets a chance to connect with your device will grant you access to all your bought games.
this is just me letting my ideas explode on to the forums for people to just comment. this might possibly get some " special people" interested. though you don't have to take this seriously, i mean imagine how much money it migt cause steam to spend. this is like a far off dream.
