    Well, if we have to sell hardware we will. We have no reason to believe we're any good at it, it's more we think that we need to continue to have innovation and if the only way to get these kind of projects started is by us going and developing and selling the hardware directly then that's what we'll do. It's definitely not the first thought that crosses our mind; we'd rather hardware people that are good at manufacturing and distributing hardware do that. We think it's important enough that if that's what we end up having to do then that's what we end up having to do.

    Where did you get the picture OP?

    It's not from the article as far as I can see.

    Oh wait I found it. Why not just link to the original article, it puts what he says into much bigger context.

    That present hardware (I presume that he means mainly consoles) suck, and that if Valve has to create their own hardware to be happy with it's capabilities, they are going to do it.

    That's pretty damn good if you ask me.

    If Valve brought in their own console running Steam centered OS, I would consider getting it.

    What I like about Valve games is that they don't need a $1000 computer to run smoothly.

    A Steam games console would be good though.

    Everyone should read the original article on PA report, it's a good interview and a good look at how Valve's doing currently.

    Plus I hate blogs that exist to repost news articles written by other sites for the sole purpose of increasing page views.

    I'm looking at you Kotaku.

    There's a Half-Life 3 logo in the top left corner.

    What are you two talking about
    He's talking about the Half Life 3 logo.

    It's shopped, anyway, though.
    1. Its blurriness is off.
    2. Other pictures clearly show it being a different logo.
    3. Parts of it are floating in mid-air. All of the other ones have some small part connecting them back to the wall so they don't fall out. This one doesn't.

    No, it's the full photo, unless they somehow invented CSI level uncropping software.

    The half-life 3 logo is probably shopped though.
