Valve is trying to win gamers and devs and take over PS4 and Xbox One.

Steambox, Steam controller, family sharing, trading cards. Valve don't want PS4 and Xbox One to win, because if the consoles are winning over PC, then PC will get crappy ports like before. So, Valve trying to make Steam PC more exciting, cool stuff etc.

Valve trying to change it and make developers to love PC

ITT there are no states of social responsibility between Buddha-esque selflessness and cut-throat Capitalism.

Honestly, as stupid as I think the things they've announced this week are (especially that terrible controller) I think Valve's main goal here is, along with making money of course, to give PC gamers more options. This isn't about competing with consoles. If it were, "Steam Machines" wouldn't be limited to Linux gaming without a Windows installation. SteamOS wouldn't mostly be useful for streaming games to a device from another PC. The controller is really just awful either way. But my point is, Valve isn't trying to compete with consoles. They're trying to make PC gaming more appealing. They're giving it more options so that more people can enjoy it in more ways. Even if those options already exist in other forms and the new ones are kind of stupid.

I read the announcement post. And I like the idea, assuming it is executed well.
