Sony says the PS4 is selling well

Sony says that it has sold 2.1 million PS4 consoles as of December 1. Sony also notes that PS4 owners are taking advantage of the social features of the new console, and that over 6.5 million shares have been captured using the Share button on the PS4 controller.
 
"PS4 delivered the best launch in PlayStation history with the North American release and we've continued this incredibly successful start in Europe, Australasia and Latin America," said Andrew House, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. 

 
"Demand remains incredibly strong and continues to overwhelm the supply worldwide, but we are diligently working to meet those growing demands and to deliver additional PS4 units to our retail partners throughout the holiday season."
 
Sony officially announced the PS4 console in June. The PS4 launched on November 15 in the U.S. and Canada, but the console has been in limited supply and some of the early units had an issue dubbed the "blue light of death."
 
On November 29, the console was made available in Europe, Australia, and Latin America. As of now, the PS4 is available in 32 countries around the world.

I think Valve has a shot at making Linux a viable alternative.

Yes, this will take time. Steam took time. I had it since early beta when it was just a patcher for CS 1.6, and it wasn't very good. The Half Life 2 launch was a disaster from a technical standpoint. Conservative tech-tards wrote it off as something that would never work, that it would never replace discs for media, etc. A few years later and it became an absolutely indispensable part of PC gaming.

Gabe is one of the few tech visionaries out there. He sees where the puck is going and he lays the groundwork years in advance to get to where its going.

Windows doesn't have an alternative for PC gaming. Not yet, but I think it will when Valve is through with their OS.
