Anyone hear about the "Steamboy"?
So does anyone know anything about the Steamboy?
I think it is something that is going to be amazing, what are your thoughts? I might consider buying this than any other handheld out there, hope it can run CSGO and Left 4 Dead c:

Yes I have, to me it looks exactly like this, but with more things into it.

I hope they do well on the Steam Controller and the Steam Machine.

I think it isn't even associated with Valve and only a 3rd party concept, trying to cash in on another companies success.

It also will lack storage (from the current spec listing). I don't see this working out they way they want.

Has anyone heard any updates on this thing? I would buy this in a heartbeat if I could stream Skyrim on the go. Last I heard it was slated for sometime this year (2015) but I can't find any updates

Steam doesn't have handheld games, so that's a rather pointless project for them.

They should have pushed the Steam-Machine project more, instead of focusing on pointless stuff like the Steam Controller, SteamOS, or this "Steam-Boy" thing. None of this makes them sell a single additional game, whereas getting PC manufacturers to sell PCs wrapped into a console outfit might allow them to snatch a bit of the console market share.

That's why the Steam Boy will support most or even all the games we have.. but portable, think of it like on the go, you have the games every where you go. Hopefully this goes through well and CSGO optimizes well with the handeheld, I'd buy this for sure!
