The Steam Machine Needs More Time

A couple days ago Valve announced that the first round of Steam Machines were going to be pushed back to 2015. Not exactly great news for people hoping for the "real" next generation of consoles. I have a theory going on that's probably crazy talk but here me out. I think the delay on the Steam Machine is due to a delay in Half-Life 3. I know, I know, there's nothing but speculation when it comes to Half-Life 3 but I just have this feeling that Valve has something extra up their sleeve when it comes to the Steam Machines. A linux based console/pc hybrid can't be the easiest sell, it's going to need really good and I mean REALLY GOOD, games to get the attention of the unwashed masses. Call of Duty #57: Duty Harder just won't cut it. What better way to turn some heads than releasing what might be the most anticipated game of all time as an exclusive (or at least as a steam exclusive).

I mean this has to be some sort of software delay right, I get it that Valve says this delay has to do with the controller but really? The Controller? That dog don't hunt. Modern wireless controller tech has been around since 2006 is it a problem with the touch pads? Motion sensors? Unless they're being developed by Gabe himself in his basement that doesn't sound right to me. I'd much rather believe in a thing that probably doesn't exist than here some sort of "rational" explanation.
