I was thinking about the recent announcement from Nintendo of possible mergers and I thought what if this happened this E3? it's not exactly a merger it's more of a collaborative effort.
I mean this is the fastest, easiest and strongest way for Nintendo to recover from that mess of a product called the Wii U and start competing in a huge way against Sony and Microsoft.
They license their IP and brand for Valve and it's a done deal in a matter of months they could release their console.
Nintendo could have the most powerful next-gen console supported with major 3rd party developers plus all of the best Nintendo had to offer in terms of amazing software.
I know it's not gonna happen because it's impossible for Nintendo to let go of their precious IP, plus steam machines are PCs which are prone to hacks and piracy which basically means Nintendo games playable on every PC on earth.
I don't know if it is also possible for Valve and Nintendo to come to terms of making their Steam machine more of a closed machine in terms of OS meaning it only runs custom steam OS ( Nintendo skin all over it ) when you turn the system on rather making it an app that runs from the regular PC OS or something like that, this might prevent the games from being pirated.
What do you think of the idea overall? discuss.
