Not to mention the ever popular Steam service. You figured it would be all Ace's for Valve to release a grand invasion of Steam machines to sit next to your TV. Yet, despite all the popularity, success and magic that Valve seems to have. Pitching Steam machines to Gamer's has been possibly Valve toughest challenge yet.
