Does not interest me at all.
I don't think it'll be the big game changer people are expecting it to be.

Edit: But it is Valve and their brain-dead fanboys will buy it and are defending this like it's the greatest thing ever.
That can be said for any new console.

In psychology there is a concept known as the Forer effect wherein people will identify with a weakly worded personality description as though it was tailored for them.

The assessment in question said:
You have a need for other people to like and admire you, and yet you tend to be critical of yourself. While you have some personality weaknesses you are generally able to compensate for them. You have considerable unused capacity that you have not turned to your advantage. Disciplined and self-controlled on the outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure on the inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You also pride yourself as an independent thinker; and do not accept others' statements without satisfactory proof. But you have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. At times you are extroverted, affable, and sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, and reserved. Some of your aspirations tend to be rather unrealistic.

I think we may have stumbled upon the equivalent for computer game fandom. However it will need to be refined.

Similarly the Forer effect is one of the reasons horoscopes and the like are observed to be junk, I am drawn to wonder if there might also be something like that here.

Reason for EOF. Best to have something potentially halfway amusing here it from time to time.
