Steam Machines is Valve's foray into the living room with having a hardware console. Initial Steam Machines prototypes were made by Valve but many OEM partners have since jumped onboard for beginning to deliver their own Steam Machines in 2014, most of which will be powered by Valve's Linux-based SteamOS.
