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.

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.

I wouldn't expect Valve to make one themselves anyway. They'd just have a partnership with someone like ASUS or whomever.
Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended.
