Valve would consider own-brand hardware

Steam owner and digital PC giant Valve has said that it would consider entering the games hardware race.

“Well, if we have to sell hardware we will,” co-founder and Valve MD Gabe Newell told Penny Arcade.

“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.”
