Gabe Newell: PC-to-TV streaming to become standard feature

Valve co-founder Gabe Newell predicts that PC-to-TV streaming will become an essential feature on future TV sets. Newell claims PCs will take on traditional video game consoles in a three-tier segmentation of "good, better, best". The "good" segment will consist of in-home streaming, where users stream images from their PC to any TV in the house with super-low latency. Newell expects this will be a $100 feature that will eventually become free as he expects it to become a standard in future TVs.

One step up in the ladder is a PC in a console form factor at a console price point, this is where Valve's Steam Box comes into the picture as an affordable living-room based gaming box. Newell described the "best" scenario as a traditional PC purchase solely for living room use, he explains the sky is the limit in this scenario as PCs scale very well depending on the customer's needs.
Newell's 'best' scenario is essentially a traditional PC purchased just for living room use. "PCs have always scaled really well - if a customer wants more 3D performance they can get it. If they want more storage for video the can get it. So the sky is the limit - if you want a $4000 living room box I'm sure there are lots of PC vendors who are going to send that to you," he said.
