Could Apple have plans for a living-room product that may redefine the games console market? According to Valve founder Gabe Newell, such a product may be in Apple's pipeline:
'I suspect Apple will launch a living-room product that redefines people's expectations really strongly and the notion of a separate console platform will disappear,' said Newell.
However, Newell admitted that he wasn't hiding any insider information and did not know if there really was such a product in Apple's pipeline.
Newell then moved on to discuss the problems of closed platforms and, according to The Seattle Times, said that if Valve were to ever release a a hardware platform itself then it would be designed as open to competing services.
