"Customers to receive Valve’s Steam Box prototypes, Microsoft discounts Valve as a competitor, and the voice of Metal Gear’s Snake causes buzz on Twitter."
They shouldn't. They REALLY shouldn't.
It depends, the Steam Box is all about games, whereas if rumours are to be believed MS is aiming for a media center type of device (It will still play games though). They'll be aiming at different markets. However like I said its a rumour, and until MS announce their intentions we won't know :)
