I hope SteamOS and steam machines bankrupts Valve

Then It'll kill early access and indie games, not a bad trade off.

Extremely unlikely. Their investments would be minimal since they are relying on third parties to build the hardware.

This topic is... ridiculous.

But anyway, I'll bite:

I hope SteamOS and Steam Machines are a success, and Valve gets richer and richer, still selling great games and offering huge sales.



Ok, how's my counter-hope hope? Good?

lol

well if not a single steam machine sells, it might hurt steam a bit? I mean, they're prebuilt PCs. It's not a console. It's not a huge investment or something they're relying on. It's just an OS valve put together to reduce cost and a controller.

I don't know, If those sales are mostly indie and early access as evident of the recent sale, I don't think so.
