crusty old AMD XP based PC will do the honours admirably.

It feels like the writer is taking the piss out of people who cant afford the latest and greatest and thats quite honestly insulting.

Steam games arn't that expensive, espacially for me, living in the UK, steam games are almost half price, so steam is a blessing. You also don't have the problem of having to goto the shops, or wait for a delivery, or find the shop is out of stock.
Usually I agree that it's better to have something in your hand, but I really like steam, one of the few digital distribution systems I actually like to use.
