Valve has declared it won't be looking to tie anyone with exclusivity deals when it launches its SteamOS and Steam Machines.
"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," head of business development Anna Sweettold IGN.
"Because 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 designer Greg Coomer added "you won't see an exclusive killer app for SteamOS from us. We're not going to be doing that kind of thing."
"We're hoping to unify, to get Steam to be as platform- and context-agnostic as possible. You shouldn't have to shed that every generation, or even slightly shed it."
The company announced the Linux based SteamOS and a range of Steam Machines in September.
"Hundreds of great games are already running natively on SteamOS. Watch for announcements in the coming weeks about all the AAA titles coming natively to SteamOS in 2014," said the company at that time.
