Contrary to popular rumors, Valve has clarified that it has no plans to release hardware of its own, ie the so-called "Steam Box". Elaborate reports of the hardware design and even a certification program caused a flutter on the internet in early March. Given the wide reach of the Steam distribution platform, the device would have had the potential to become a common PC hardware platform for game developers to optimize titles for. Valve, however, has quashed all speculation, saying its sole focus was a new UI for people gaming on their TVs.
