You think the figures saw this year is crazy money?!?! They are worth 3 Billion!!

MS lost 3.7 Billion just on the first Xbox! You don't need a business degree to see were i'm going with this...

I want Valve to succeed but they need to be strategic and use their business savvy.

MS lost money on the first xbox because they just entered the console market. they needed to create an installed base so they sold the hardware at a loss. some of the loss also came from buying up game devs like bungie and paying publishers to have exclusive games for the xbox. valve has experience so i think they have a better chance of succeeding with their own gaming hardware whatever form it might be.
