Let's take stock. Valve, one of the most important video game developers and publishers in the business, is now making Linux games. Its Steam store is running on Linux. It’s a member of the Linux Foundation. And it’s even built its own Linux Distro – SteamOS – that will power multiple game consoles shipping in 2014.
If successful in the market, and there's little reason to think they won't be at least moderately successful at this point, this could have a huge impact on the Linux gaming scene. The largest we've ever seen. You know Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo (and just about everyone else) will be watching very closely what Valve does with SteamOS in 2014.
