    Google,buy Valve and under pain of death make them develop Half Life 3 as a launch title.

    That will get everyone's attention.

    So I assume its going to be tied to a monthly subscription on top of the cost of having a decent internet connection.

    All well and good but most consoles are used on a telly in the living room. Not many people are going to be opening a chrome flap on their telly...

    I don't see how you can stream to a VR headset without adding a sick bucket to the requirements. If they can create a new ChromeOS/Android based games console spec that is more useful than a SteamOS box then I might show some interest.

    Even though they said they are not making it; deep inside I wish that they are.

    Google console? That's just ..... wrong. So, for me, no way. That's less likely than a Steam box, and hell will freeze over before I'll do that.

    The last thing that's good for the public is either Valve or Google having greater market power.

    I don't mind them making one as it may lower prices among the competition but I'm certainly not going to get one.
