"Valve is currently valued around $2.5 billion, a figure that’s only going to grow if the company’s new ventures are successful. Forget EA, Valve’s competitors now are the hardware makers of the world. Sony, Microsoft, and even Apple are the companies Valve is interested in taking on next. The company began hiring industrial engineers this month as it looks to begin building PC gaming hardware. As detailed in the Times article, it’s also working on wearable computing gear like gaming goggles. Valve is even getting into more basic computing utilities, selling non-gaming apps through Steam.

By the end of this decade, it might be Valve buying EA."

Unfortunately, I believe they stopped working on the pc hardware thing. It was going to be called the steam box (I think), and would have been a medium strength linux machine, that would allow for interchangeable parts. It was basically going to be a beginner gaming computer

The Piston is still in development, by all accounts.

See, Valve were smart because they kept the one thing that everyone else was throwing away in search of profits, their credibility. Now all those other companies want their credibility back but they can't beat Valve's record. Valve has cornered the market in more ways than one.
