Seems like as many as 25 people may have been let go from Valve this week.

Well, clearly hardware got hit, and possible Android.

Given all the speculation and buzz from CES about a Valvebox, it seems unlikely that project was cut. My guess: they had been exploring several options, including Android and their own hardware, negotiations/discussions at CES gave them more clarity, and they made a decision that leads to no dedicated Valve hardware (which was basically already knew) including no dedicated controller, and not using Android as part of it. Prior to that they may have been investigating something more Ouya-ish.

Just a guess based upon the tiny shred of info we have.
