If you've dismissed the list of 14 hardware partners who have presented their Steam Machines at CES in hopes for Valve's first-party hardware, prepare to be disappointed. Gabe Newell announced at CES that Valve would not release their own Steam Machine. If you want this PC streaming device, you'll have to peruse that list.
"We're going to continue to make that decision as we go along. We've been happy with the results of doing hardware development with clients. We have plans to build more machines, but we also expect that users will be really happy with the range of offerings from these hardware manufacturers," Newell explained. "I mean, we’ve made 300 [machines], which is a very tiny step. We’ll make what we need to. We really view our role in this as enabling. So we’ll do whatever is going to be helpful to other hardware manufacturers – whether that’s with controller design or building specific kinds of boxes."
Considering Valve's strength has always been software, this isn't too surprising. It's always possible that they'll make their own device later down the road, but for now, their focus is getting the service up and running smoothly.
