For any gamers worried Half-life 3, the PC-gaming holy grail, might be locked to Valve's upcoming console, Greg Coomer from Valve reassures you that, "You won’t see an exclusive killer app for SteamOS from us. We’re not going to be doing that kind of thing."
Speaking in an interview with IGN, representatives from Valve provided new details on experience Steam OS will provide. And the non-exclusive philosophy trickles down to third-party developers as well. “Whenever we talk to third-party partners, we encourage them to put their games in as many places as possible, including not on our platforms," said Valve's Anna Sweet.
"We think that customers are everywhere, and they want to put their games wherever customers are. That would go against our whole philosophy, to launch something that’s exclusive to SteamOS or Steam machines.”
Valve's ultimate plan is to make their OS "as platform- and context-agnostic as possible," said Coomer. "You shouldn’t have to shed that every generation, or even slightly shed it." He did note that smaller, independent developers may not have the resources to develop for more than one platform, but for everyone else, "it would be pretty silly...to limit their game to a certain platform."
