Hey Techies, I do IB with Business and Management Higher, and currently have to write a 2000 word essay on an REAL UPCOMING BUSINESS DECISION with primary and secondary research. Currently I have no idea what I'm going to investigate, but I think it'll be something to do with the Steam Box, dubbed the Steam 'Piston' (specs available here), most likely "Should Valve enter the console market" with several different sub questions that I may have to narrow it down to "Would a Valve-Console dent the console market", "What market niche would the Steam Piston fill", with some analysis using Porter's 5 Forces etc. Question 1: Would you want a PC in your living room? Yes? No? Maybe? Why? Question 2: What would you use it for? Why use it over a proper PC? Question 3: Is there anything you'd use it for that a Android dongle couldn't do? Does it seem worth the (tentative) $1000 price tag over a $50 dongle? Question 4: What do you think of the Linux based system? What do you think this would mean for the console? Question 5: What do you think the easily upgradable parts would bring to the table? Why? Question 6: Considering the recent announcement of the Xbox One, and the PS4, how do you think the Steam Piston would diversify? Question 7: Instead of the steam Piston, why not just buy a $10 5m HDMI cable and stream that to your TV? Question 8: Instead of buying a console, which costs a lot in terms of R&D, would it not be more cost effective to be the first on the scene with a wireless HDMI system? Would you buy it even if it cost $100? How about $200? What is the maximum you'd pay for best wireless HDMI, so good that it could stream 4K TV and games? Question 9: How much hype do you think the secretive style actually generates for Valve? Question 10: Is playing at full graphics at 60FPS a necessity for you? I'd like to thank you for the time you've taken to respond to this, I find this quite an interesting topic.
