Interesting read. Basically saying Valve is out to destroy Windows, not make a console.

I always thought that Valve dealing in hardware would be iffy.... I figured Valve would just make specs for a steam box and then someone else would sell it as a partner.... that could still happen. I doubt it'll be priced to be competitive with consoles though since consoles have a licensing fee to subsidize the cost of the hardware... PC doesn't have that so it would make no sense to sell the hardware at a loss or even at cost like a console manufacturer might do.
None of this is really aimed at me anyway since I am content where I am for gaming... though if they can push microsoft out of the gaming equation, that'd be interesting. --- http://raptr.com/badge/arleas/uc.png http://www.speedtest.net/result/2868545294.png

They could always do what Google did with the Nexus tablets. Go knock on Asus' door, tell them what to build, and split it 30/70 with 'em. Boom, you've got yourself a steambox and then Asus will sell you the same thing the next year for $100 less. --- Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican. steamid: Rohchya

I wouldn't expect Valve to make one themselves anyway. They'd just have a partnership with someone like ASUS or whomever. --- http://i.imgur.com/ULj4q.jpg Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended.
