2013 is shaping up to be an interesting year for gamers. On the one hand, you have the release of the Ouya
, a $99 game console funded through Kickstarter by the gaming community itself. The Android-based console already has a few exclusives lined up, including a partnership with Square Enix. Equally important is Valve's confirmation
that it's working on a Steam Box console. Such a console would not only usher in the death of the disc, but also an abundance of deals on popular gaming titles as we're already accustomed to seeing from Steam. Cheap, cloud-based gaming? We say bring it on!
