Just a day after news was released about a pre-order discount for the Xi3 Piston, Valve has moved to distance itself entirely from what was unofficially known as the "Steam Box".
We reported yesterday about the discount to the Xi3 Piston, which will cost $1,000 or $899.99 if it's pre-ordered. However, in less than 24 hours, Valve, the creators of the Steam platform, has made a statement which says they're no longer dealing with Xi3.
"Valve began some exploratory work with Xi3 last year, but currently has no involvement in any product of theirs," said Doug Lombardi in a statement to Eurogamer.
Whether or not this will have an impact on sales of the Xi3 Piston remains to be seen, but we'll find out when it releases in the holiday season.
