He hinted that the PC console boxes may be too confusing for casual consumers to operate. As a result, a majority of gamers may still prefer the traditional PS4 and Xbox One systems. You can find his statement below (courtesy of Engadget and GameSpot):

When you get into that living room environment, you don't want to spend any of your brain cells doing anything but being entertained. I don't want to work on it; I don't want to feel like I have to know how it works. I would like to be blowing things up now, or watching a thing now. That's the fundamental thing that you want to do.

Marc Whitten also talked a little bit about the Oculus Rift and Playstation Now. He is actually excited for both as he believed that the products should help expand the gaming industry to the benefit of all parties. He concluded by saying that this generation is the “most golden of golden ages.”

The Xbox One, which came out on Nov. 22 in 2013, managed to sell 3 million units as of the end of last year. Microsoft did not seem to be too concerned with the latest revelations about the Oculus Rift, Playstation Now, Steam Machines during the Consumer Electronics Show.

Oculus Rift is a virtual reality head set that is expected to come out in 2014 or 2015. The Playstation Now stream service should be made available later this summer.
