....or EPIC or GAMEPASS, LUNA, STADIA and myriad other competitors on their way...the point being getting into hardware where you don't control the long term money flowing in from games isnt going to work out for them like a console...so what is the play? Other manufactures can and will undercut their hardware and give you a choice of OS. I guess that is why the thread exists...if you don't control the hardware or software to the end user...what is Valve's long term benefit here. "Creating a new category"...ok...why...you're not getting new users with this and you're not locking in your existing users since the OS is replaceable...Let's be real, if you are playing games on Windows you are very likely buying games on Steam.
