Valve head Gabe Newell took to Reddit to answer some questions on the leadup to Steam Dev Days. Asked about how open Steam Machines will be, Gabe pulled EA’s Origin (a known Steam competitor) of all things and said that it would be fine if Origin was on Steam Machines.

That’s certainly an interesting crinkle. If Origin is invited to Steam Machines, what couldn’t be allowed in the hardware?
