The Tech Report got to thinking about the future of the Steam Machine and how likely it is to be more like a line of PCs than a single console. While some are currently awaiting a response to their request to participate in the beta, TR is already looking to the future of the Steam Box. With the open source SteamOS and Steam's vast knowledge of the hardware people use in their gaming machines TR envisions a line of Steam Machines from a lower end model for light gaming on a TV all the way up to high end versions that will sport the latest and greatest hardware. Can Valve be as successful at selling pre-built machines as it is at selling hats?
"In his latest blog post, TR's Geoff Gasior gets all worked up about Valve's upcoming Steam machines and explains why they're another example of the company playing to the strengths of the PC."
